Why is this medication prescribed?

The combination of ombitasvir, paritaprevir, ritonavir, and dasabuvir is used alone or in combination with ribavirin (Copegus, Rebetol) to treat chronic (long-term) hepatitis C infection (swelling of the liver caused by a virus). Ombitasvir is a hepatitis C virus (HCV) NS5A inhibitor. It works by stopping the virus that causes hepatitis C from spreading inside the body. Paritaprevir is a protease inhibitor. It works by decreasing the amount of HCV in the body. Ritonavir is a protease inhibitor. It helps to increase the amount of paritaprevir in the body so that the medication will have a greater effect. Dasabuvir is a non-nucleoside NS5B polymerase inhibitor. It works by decreasing the amount of HCV in the body. It is not known if ombitasvir, paritaprevir, ritonavir, or dasabuvir prevent the spread of hepatitis C to other people.

How should this medicine be used?

The combination of ombitasvir, paritaprevir, ritonavir, and dasabuvir comes as tablets to take by mouth. This medication comes in a package with 28 days of medication. Each daily dose package has different types of tablets, two containing the combination of ombitasvir, paritaprevir, and ritonavir and two others containing dasabuvir. Take ombitasvir, paritaprevir, and ritonavir (2 tablets) and dasabuvir (1 tablet) every morning with food, then take dasabuvir (1 tablet) every evening with food.

The length of your treatment (12 to 24 weeks) depends on your condition, how well you respond to the medication, and whether you experience severe side effects.
