Greg Jefferys Hepatitis C blog deals with all the issues associated with hepatitis C
Every day I get emails from people around the world asking for advice about Hepatitis C treatment. They are asking about which medicine they should get and what price they should pay and how long they should do the Hepatitis C treatment for.
Now I am not a doctor and have no formal medical training but I have lived and breathed Hepatitis C seven days a week 365 days a year since 2014 when I first learned that I was infected with Hepatitis C.
Whilst I am not a medical man I do, however, have a Bachelor of Arts degree, a Diploma in Education and a Masters Degree in History and I was 6 months into my PhD when I learned I had Hep C. So I am no dummy and I am quite capable of doing serious formal research.
So in this post I am going to show you which is the best, and most affordable, Hepatitis C treatment based on the results of solid scientific research done by many different internationally recognised research groups.
And I am going to say now that the best value all round Hep C treatment is Sofosbuvir 400 mg + Daclatasvir 60. In almost every situation, for every genotype Sofosbuvir + Daclatasvir is equal to, or better than, Epclusa, Maviret or Harvoni and it is also the least expensive at US0 for a 12 weeks treatment.
In 2014 I was six months into my PhD at the University of Tasmania when I suddenly became very, very sick. To cut a long story short I discovered that I had Hepatitis C.
Back in 2014 the only treatment option I could access was Sovaldi, but it was more than $100,000 for a treatment, which I did not have. So in May 2015 I went to India and purchased generic Sovaldi and I treated myself with a combination of Sovaldi (Sofosbuvir 400 mg) + Ribavirin. Three months later I was cured.
Later that year generic Harvoni became available and then generic Daclatasvir and then generic Epclusa. Then Mavyret arrived on the scene.
With the availability of so many new treatments, and with the drug companies spending vast fortunes on advertising it became hard to decide which Hepatitis C treatment was actually the best.

This is the first article I’ve read of yours…so I apologize if the answer is obvious somewhere else. My husband has lived with Hep C for 23 years and is now 43. We’ve always kept it at bay using acupuncture, but we are ready to just get it out of his system. Where do you actually suggest going to get these drugs to eradicate it from his body? Thank you for your time!
I have replied to you by email. I will certainly do the best I can to help your husband clear the Hep C
I just read your articles after reserching the right treatments for my aunt. She lives in Serbia and I am in Delhi. Her doctors are telling her not to go for generic Indian medicines. And my pharmacist here tells me it is just a metter of cost.
She has type 1 hep c since she was 9. Now she is in her 60’s.
A decade ago she developed very bad itching with rash that stained her skin. It is not passing and on top of it this summer she developed cirrhosis. The course of treatment prescribed by her doctor is: sofosbuvir/ledipasvir and Ribavirin 2x600mg for 12 weeks. Here in India Ribavirin is available only in 200mg tablets. I worry that taking 6 of them daily will not do her stomach good.
Any advice perhaps?
Thank you so much
Yes I will be happy to give you any help I can. Please simply email me direct and I will pass on contact details of reliable people
and any advice you need.
Maybe I missed it from your article but do you know if there’s a generic version of Mayvret out there yet? Much thanks for all you’re doing.
At the moment there is no generic version of Mavyret and I have heard no news of any generic Mavyret appearing in the near future.
However, as mentioned in the article you read, Sof + Dac is equal to, or superior to, Mavyret Best wishes Greg
I have lived with HEPC for 20 + years and have not had any real symptoms, but would like to eradicate it before I do. Can you please email me your study and your source for the Sof + Dac treatment you have described. I was going to do the Harvoni and then decided to do the Mavyret, but now I am impressed with your research and would rather give it a try. Great Job man! You should be proud of yourself.
Best Regards, Mark
