Depends: What genotype of hepatitis c do you have?
Genotype 1 can be treated with peg-interferon plus Ribavirin plus a protease inhibitor.
People with genotype 2, 3, and 4 who did not get cured with peg-interferon plus Ribavirin should wait until sofosbuvir is approved, then probably will need to use sofosbuvir plus peg-interferon plus Ribavirin again. We are still waiting for data from a phase 3 trial.
