Combination antiviral therapy helps to prevent the virus that causes hepatitis C from reproducing in the body along with HIV. Peg interferon and Ribavirin are combined to give the best response to treatment in case of HIV Positive. A protease inhibitor (such as Boceprevir or telaprevir) also may be given along with peg interferon and Ribavirin. Combination antiviral therapy is prescribed for those who have ongoing (chronic) hepatitis C infection. This therapy has certain side-effects that comes with medicine. Usually the benefits of the medicine are more important than any minor side effects i. e Fatigue, headache, muscle and joint aches etc. Periodic liver function tests and a liver biopsy every 3 to 5 years come in the special considerations. Follow-up care is a key part of treatment and safety. One has to be sure to make and go to all appointments, and call the doctor if there is any problem.
