Elbasvir / Grazoprevir Information
(elb' as vir) (graz oh' pre vir)You may already be infected with hepatitis B (a virus that infects the liver and may cause severe liver damage) but not have any symptoms of the disease. In this case, taking the combination of elbasvir and grazoprevir may increase the risk that your infection will become more serious or life-threatening and you will develop symptoms. Tell your doctor if you have or ever had a hepatitis B virus infection. Your doctor will order a blood test to see if you have or have ever had hepatitis B infection. Your doctor will also monitor you for signs of hepatitis B infection during and for several months after your treatment. If necessary, your doctor may give you medication to treat this infection before and during your treatment with the combination of elbasvir and grazoprevir. If you experience any of the following symptoms during or after your treatment, call your doctor immediately: excessive tiredness; yellowing of skin or eyes; loss of appetite; nausea or vomiting; pale stools; pain in upper right side of the stomach area; or dark urine. Keep all appointments with your doctor and the laboratory. Your doctor may order certain tests before, during, and after your treatment to check your body's response to the combination of elbasvir and grazoprevir. Talk to your doctor about the risk(s) of taking the combination of elbasvir and grazoprevir.
