What Is Epclusa?

Epclusa (sofosbuvir and velpatasvir) is a prescription medication that is used in the treatment of chronic hepatitis C. Epclusa is used to treat patients with compensated cirrhosis or without cirrhosis. It can also be used in combination with ribavirin in patients with decompensated cirrhosis.

Epclusa contains two antiviral medications, sofosbuvir and velpatasvir. Prior to administration, it is recommended to get tested for hepatitis B (HBV) as this medication can cause reactivation of hepatitis B. This medication can be given to adults and pediatric patients that are 3 years and older that suffer from hepatitis C. This medication interacts with other medications, and it is important to check for drug-drug interactions before administration of this medication.

Directions for Use

Epclusa is a tablet that is taken orally once a day with or without food. It is a combination tablet that contains 400 mg of sofosbuvir and 100 mg of velpatasvir. Eplcusa should not be coadministered with amiodarone as serious symptomatic bradycardia (slowing of heart rate) can occur. The solubility of velpatasvir may decrease as pH increases. Patients should also not concomitantly take proton pump inhibitors, antacids, or H2-receptor antagonists while on Epclusa. This medication may also interact with other medications that will cause the medication to decrease its therapeutic effect. It is necessary to check for drug-drug interactions prior to administration of this medication. Medications such as St. John’s Wort, carbamazepine, digoxin, and topotecan can also affect the efficacy of Epclusa. This medication can also be given to pediatric patients depending on the patient’s weight. 

Dosing information for pediatric patients: 

  • <17 kg: Oral pellets: Oral: Sofosbuvir 150 mg/velpatasvir 37.5 mg once daily.
  • 17 to <30 kg: Oral pellets, tablet: Oral: Sofosbuvir 200 mg/velpatasvir 50 mg once daily.
  • ≥30 kg: Oral pellets, tablet: Oral: Sofosbuvir 400 mg/velpatasvir 100 mg once daily.

For pediatric patients younger than 6 years old, this medication can be given with food to help with taste. The oral pellets can be sprinkled on non-acidic foods such as pudding, mashed potatoes, or ice cream and given within 15 minutes after mixing. The medication should not be chewed or crushed but swallowed whole.
