What is Olysio?

Olysio can help cure your chronic hepatitis C, when combined with other antiviral medications. Olysio can help to make the Hepatitis C virus not detectable in your blood for a period of time, after the treatment is complete. Olysio is to be used in combination with peginterferon alfa and ribavirin.

Health Concerns

  • Do not use Olysio if you are pregnant or plan to become pregnant. Olysio can be harmful to an unborn child, when combined with peginterferon alfa and ribaverin.
