If you have chronic hepatitis C, your healthcare provider may prescribe VICTRELIS. This medication comes in the form of a capsule and is taken three times a day. To use this medicine, your treatment regimen must also include peginterferon alfa and ribavirin. Although generally well tolerated, this medication can cause side effects such as fatigue, nausea, and headache.
VICTRELIS™ (boceprevir) is a prescription medication approved for the treatment of chronic hepatitis C in combination with two other medications: peginterferon alfa (Pegasys®, PEG-Intron®) and ribavirin (Copegus®, Rebetol®, Ribapak®, Ribasphere®). VICTRELIS is designed for use in adults who have stable liver disease and have not been previously treated for hepatitis C, or who have failed previous treatment.
