FDA Adds Boxed Warning to Hepatitis C Drugs, Warns of Hep B
FDA Adds Boxed Warning to Hepatitis C Drugs, Warns of Hepatitis B Reactivation Risk
So if one had Hepatitis B would you still treat? I'd take that chance since a very small number of cases were reported. By the way, that warning was from the Food and Drug Administration which is USA based.
I just got my prescription from Dr Freeman and I plan on getting my meds. Never had hep B anyway. Just information here.
