Drug Uses

The capsules of Copegus can be used in combination with interferon. This combination is useful for treating patients suffering from chronic hepatitis C, especially in those patients who have not been treated with interferon before, or who have had a return of hepatitis C, followed by a successful treatment with interferon.

Usage

Medication must always be taken as advised by your medical practitioner/physician. If you are unsure, then please contact your physician for precise instructions. On the other hand, the medicine label usually contains dosage instructions which also may be followed.

Copegus may be taken with a meal and two capsules in a day so as to prevent stomach problems.

A full glass of water when taken with Copegus always ensures better absorption.

Medications are prescribed according to a dosage schedule which must be completed in order to reap the benefits of the treatment. Lapsed schedules render Copegus ineffective. So, never stop in between unless advised by your physician.

One of the best ways to ensure that you do not miss out on a dose is to maintain a fixed regime for consuming Copegus each day.


Drug Class and Mechanism

Copegus being an antiviral drug can be useful in combination with interferon. Such a combination is good for treating chronic hepatitis C. The exact mechanism of its action is yet to be known, but it is thought to meddle with the production, or action of viral DNA and RNA. These are very critical to the survival and multiplication of the virus.

Missed Dose

You must maintain a schedule for taking the medicine at the same time each day so that you do not miss out on any doses. But, in the advent of a missed dose, take it as soon as you remember so that you can compensate for the loss of the dose.

But, then you may need to adjust your remaining doses accordingly. And if it is almost time for the next dose, then please skip the missed dose and continue with the normal schedule.

Never try to compensate for the missed dose by taking a double dose together. It may cause adverse effects.

Storage

Copegus must be stored at a cool and dark place that prevents it from direct exposure to sunlight. It should also be protected from kids and pets. You can store it at room temperature preferably between 15 to 30 degrees C.
Side Effects

It is common to experience some temporary and mildly annoying side effects as the body adjusts to the new drug. These rarely require any special medical attention and usually fade away automatically.

These include nausea, headache, vomiting, dizziness, stomach upset, blurred vision, trouble sleeping, and even flu-like symptoms leading to fever, sore throat, chills, muscle ache, also hair loss, rash, loss of appetite, itching and weight loss.
But, if they refuse to fade away or become bothersome, then seek medical attention immediately.

On the other hand, if you experience serious side effects like chest and muscle pain, joint and stomach pain, rapid breathing, easy bruising and unusual bleeding with severe rash, swelling, severe itching, severe dizziness, weakness, trouble in breathing along with unusual tiredness, fatigue, mood changes, dark urine, severe depression and suicidal thoughts and yellowing of the skin and the eyes.
