In brief: None
Hepatitis a is rarely severe and full recovery is the rule rather than the exception without any treatment.
. If particularly severe and requiring hospitalization some will use pooled gamma globulin for passive immunization/treatment. Most helpful is being immunized if you are likely to be exposed.

In brief: No specific Rx
Hepatitis a is usually a self limited illness and needs only supportive care.
There are no drugs specifically for hep a virus.
