In brief: Yes

They are different family of medications.
Sovaldi is what is called an ns5b inhibitor (suppresses viral replication), and interferon is an "immunomodulator", it enhances your own body cells to attack certain cells. Sovaldi is a very potent and effective new medication against hepatitis c.
