Be Vigilant When Starting Meds in Patients Taking Hep C Antivirals
You'll face MANY potential drug interactions with hepatitis C antivirals (Epclusa, Mavyret, etc)...even if you didn't start these meds.
Interactions can lead to toxicity...or treatment failure. And this can be an expensive mistake...since antivirals cost up to $95,000/course.
Plus hep C meds may fly under the radar if you didn't prescribe them. Update the EHR with ALL meds...Rxs, OTCs, supplements, etc.
