Hepatitis C is much more common than you might think.

According to Web MD, nearly 4 million Americans have this form of liver infection. However, many people have Hepatitis C and don’t even know it. Sometimes it has no symptoms; other times, symptoms include stomach pain, nausea, fatigue, and a yellowing of the skin.

How is Hepatitis C Transmitted?

Ways that you can get Hepatitis C include sharing needles, sexual contact with someone who has it, drug use, or during birth (a mother can pass it to a baby).

Hepatitis C has become so common that the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention recommends that anyone born between 1945 and 1965 get tested. Additionally, if you’ve been exposed to any of the risk factors, you should be tested. Finding out if you have Hepatitis C is important because in the majority of people who have it, it becomes a chronic infection. It also it can lead to liver cancer and other serious liver conditions.

medication for hepatitis C | Discount Med DirectAlthough treatments for Hepatitis C were once hard to find, the condition has become more manageable with fairly new medications, including Harvoni (ledipasvir and sofosbuvir). After 12 weeks of treatment, studies have shown a 96% to 99% cure rate with Harvoni used once daily.

Those may be great statistics, but a major downside in the U.S. is the astronomical cost. A 12-week regimen can cost $100,000 and insurance companies don’t always approve the treatment.

However, there is some good news if you or someone you know has Hepatitis C and needs Harvoni.

There’s a generic form called MyHep LVIR that Discount Med Direct can obtain, and it will only cost you $1,200 for a 3-month supply. To find out more and make an order, just contact Discount Med Direct.
