The treatment of Hepatitis C is a relatively simple process unless a person has other serious health issues as well as having Hepatitis C.
Using the new Hep C drugs (such as Harvoni and Epclusa) most people with Hep C will be cured by taking the Hep C meds once a day for 84 days.
If someone has failed a previous Hep C treatment or has liver cirrhosis or has Hep C genotype 3 then a longer treatment time is generally recommended.
This page explains, in simple terms, the treatment options available for people with Hepatitis C. Which of the new Hep C drugs are most effective and what they cost. It also explains how to buy licensed generic versions of Hepatitis C drugs through my Hep C Buyers’ Club.

Epclusa (Sofosbuvir 400 mg + Velpatasvir 100 mg) is an effective treatment for Hepatitis C genotype 3. In most cases, people with Hep C genotype 3 should consider doing at least 16 weeks of treatment with Epclusa to give the greatest chance of a cure.
12 weeks of treatment with Epclusa will also effectively treat all other genotypes of Hepatitis C.
Twelve weeks of treatment with Epclusa gives a cure rate of better than 97% except for genotype 3.
Licensed generic Epclusa costs US$850 for 12 weeks of treatment (84 pills @ one pill per day) including shipping and insurance.
Harvoni (Sofosbuvir 400 mg + Ledipasvir 90 mg) was originally designed to treat Hepatitis C genotype 1.
Whilst twelve weeks treatment with Harvoni is generally considered the most effective treatment for Hepatitis C genotype 1 however both Epclusa and Sofosbuvir + Daclatasvir give similar cure rates for G1.
Harvoni is not the optimum treatment for any other form of Hep C except G4.
The cost of GILEAD licensed generic Harvoni is US$750 for 12 weeks of treatment. (84 pills @ one pill per day).
Sofosbuvir 400 mg + Daclatasvir 60 mg a cheap and highly effective treatment option that is effective against all genotypes of Hepatitis C.
Whilst the Hep C drug combination of Sofosbuvir + Daclatasvir is not widely used in the USA and Europe because of issues between the two patent holders Sofosbuvir + Daclatasvir is a Hep C treatment widely used in the rest of the world and has been shown to be more effective than all other new Hep C drugs across all genotypes of Hep C,
For all genotypes of Hepatitis C, that is G1, G2, G3, G4, G5 and G6, Sofosbuvir + Daclatasvir is an excellent treatment option that has a significantly lower price than other Hepatitis C drugs. It is as effective against G1 as Harvoni and as effective as Epclusa for Genotypes 2 and 3. The cost of generic Sofosbuvir + Daclatasvir is US$550 for 12 weeks of treatment (2 pills per day for 84 days). The only disadvantage of using Sof + Dac is that you need to take two pills together per day instead of one pill per day.
The reason that Sofosbuvir + Daclatasvir is so cheap is that it is a very easy drug combination to manufacture.
There is no generic version of Mavyret however both Epclusa and the combination of Sovaldi + Daklinza have been proved superior to Mavyret against all genotypes of Hepatitis C. Whilst Mavyret is effective against all genotypes of Hep C trial of various new Hep C drugs show that Sofosbuvir + Daclatasvir is about 2% more effective than Mavyret across all genotypes of Hep C. Mavyret also has the disadvantage that all its components are water-insoluble. This means special factors have to be in place in the stomach for it to be absorbed. On the other hand the drug combination of Sofosbuvir + Daclatasvir is completely water-soluble, making it easier for the body to absorb.
One of the really big issues for people needing Hep C Treatment is the cost of branded Hepatitis C medicines. For example, Harvoni costs around US$65,000 for a 12-week treatment and Epclusa costs about US$80,000 for a 12-week treatment.
What many people do not realize is that there are GILEAD-approved generic versions of these Hep C drugs that are much cheaper. These cheaper generic Hep C drugs are absolutely identical to the branded versions of Harvoni and Epclusa and Sovaldi. Importantly these cheaper generic Hep C drugs are licensed by GILEAD SCIENCES and manufactured with strict supervision from GILEAD.
So cheap Hepatitis C treatment is available but there is one BIG concern for people wanting to buy generic versions of Harvoni and Epclusa and Sovaldi online.
People considering buying generic Hepatitis C medication online are worried about being ripped off.
People wanting to buy cheap Hepatitis C medicines online worry about whether the supplier of the generic Hep C medicines is genuine. They worry that after they pay for the generic Epclusa or Harvoni that the medicines will not be delivered. Some folk worry that they may be buying fake generic Harvoni or Epclusa.
It is for these reasons I decided to form a kind of international Hepatitis C Buyers Club, which operates on a “people before profit” basis. This means that I help people needing to buy generic Hepatitis C medicines through the entire process.
I personally guarantee that the Hep C medication is a genuine GILEAD approved generic version of Harvoni or Epclusa or Sovaldi.
I personally guarantee delivery to you.
My philosophic position is that lack of money should not be a barrier to people accessing Hepatitis C treatment. So if finding money for Hep C treatment is a problem please let me know and I will remove my profit margin and supply GILEAD approved generic Hepatitis C medicine at my cost price.
For me, it is not about profit but about helping people to access Hep C treatment.
Through this “Hepatitis C Buyers’ Club” I offer people with Hep C free advice on how to buy Hep C medicines. The Hep C medicines that are supplied through my service include generic Harvoni, generic Epclusa, and the important combination of generic Sovaldi + Daklinza.
These are sent to you from India by express airmail from Gilead licensed, and FDA approved, manufacturers.
Another important free service of my Buyers Club is the provision of general information about generic Hepatitis C treatment options. This information is based on the most recent published information.
My Hep C Buyers Club also has a Facebook group where you can talk with hundreds of people who have had Hepatitis C and done their Hepatitis C treatment. People here will share their experiences about Hep C and the treatment of Hep C. It is a closed group and 100% private and very supportive.
But of course, the main activity of this “buyers’ club” is to facilitate the purchase of affordable Hepatitis C medication such as generic Harvoni and generic Epclusa from India.
Whilst the prices of “brand” versions of Hepatitis C medication range from US$20,000 to US$90,000 per treatment, the existence of generic versions of these drugs means that there is a cheap Hep C treatment option for people with Hepatitis C who can not afford the price of Hep C drugs such as Harvoni and Epclusa and Sovaldi. The prices of these approved generic Hepatitis C medicines range from US0 to US0 for a 12-week treatment.
All generic Hepatitis C medications supplied by my Buyers’ Club are manufactured under license from Gilead Sciences in FDA and WHO approved facilities and are chemically identical to brand versions.
The reason that generic Hepatitis C medicines are so relatively cheap is, simply, that these drugs are not expensive to manufacture. The high prices for the brand versions, such as Epclusa and Harvoni, are only so high because of the huge profit margins put on these drugs by their manufacturer. The actual cost of making these new Hep C medications is less than US$70 for a 12-week treatment. If you would like to know more about the history of Hepatitis C drug prices click this link.
