Hi Sussie,

I don't quite understand your question. Could you elaborate?

Here's some information regarding Incivek that may be of help to you:

----INDICATIONS AND USAGE---------------------------
INCIVEK is a hepatitis C virus (HCV) NS3/4A protease inhibitor indicated, in combination with peginterferon alfa and ribavirin, for the treatment of genotype 1 chronic hepatitis C (CHC) in adult patients with compensated liver disease, including cirrhosis, who are treatment-naïve or who have been previously treated with interferon-based treatment, including prior null responders, partial responders, and relapsers. (1)
INCIVEK must not be used as monotherapy and must only be used in combination with peginterferon alfa and ribavirin. (5.7)
• A high proportion of previous null responders (particularly those with cirrhosis) did not achieve Sustained Virologic Response (SVR) and had telaprevir resistance-associated substitutions emerge on treatment with INCIVEK. (12.4, 14.3)
INCIVEK efficacy has not been established for patients who have previously failed therapy with a treatment regimen that includes INCIVEK or other HCV NS3/4A protease inhibitors. (12.4)
----------------------DOSAGE AND ADMINISTRATION-----------------------
• 750 mg taken 3 times a day (7-9 hours apart) with food (not low fat). (2, 12.3, 17.4)
INCIVEK must be administered with both peginterferon alfa and ribavirin for all patients for 12 weeks, followed by a response-guided regimen of either 12 or 36 additional weeks of peginterferon alfa and ribavirin depending on viral response and prior response status. (2)
• For specific dosage instructions for peginterferon alfa and ribavirin, refer to their respective prescribing information.

nutritional support for hep C- high doses of vitamin C- 4000 or more mg daily. Milk thistle herb can be taken in pill form, or a wicked tea, regularly, dandelion root, and canary seed milk, all can be put in a capsule.
