    Expert advice FOR HEPTOS

    • This drug should be used only in combination with pegylated alfa interferon.
    • Take precautions as ribavirin may cause low red cell count (anaemia) that can worsen any heart problems you have and can cause you to have a heart attack that can be life-threatening.
    • Do not drive or operate machinery as ribavirin may make you drowsy, dizzy, or confused. 
    • Do consult your doctor if you have liver problems other than HCV (e.g. cirrhosis or have had a liver transplant), HIV infection, kidney problems or depression.
    • Take necessary precautions as ribavirin does not prevent the spread of infection to other people through sexual contact, sharing needles, or contact with blood.
