In brief: Hep C and ribavirin
This drug is for combination treatment of hepatitis c.
Copegus (ribavirin) alone is not effective for the treatment of chronic hepatitis c virus infection.The main toxicity is hemolytic anemia, which may result in worsening of cardiac disease, heart attacks. Your doctor will test your blood for liver enzyme levels, virus load and other things.
