Before starting this product, tell your doctor if you have ever had hepatitis B or any other liver problems. See also Precautions section.

This medication is used to treat chronic (long-lasting) hepatitis C, a viral infection of the liver. Elbasvir and grazoprevir work by reducing the amount of hepatitis C virus in your body, which helps your immune system fight the infection and may help your liver recover. This product may also be used with certain other medications (such as ribavirin). Chronic hepatitis C infection can cause serious liver problems such as scarring (cirrhosis) or liver cancer.It is not known if this treatment can prevent you from passing the virus to others. Do not share needles, and practice "safer sex" (including the use of latex condoms) to lower the risk of passing the virus to others.
