Avatar f tn Ribavirin Capsules , 200 mg Generic for Rebetol® . White to off White granular powder filled in size '0' hard gelatin capsules with white colored cap printed with "ZA-12" in black ink & white colored body printed with "200mg" in black ink. "Ribavirin is Ribavirin". This generic is manufactured by Zydus Pharmaceuticals (USA) Inc.and there is no difference.
Avatar m tn I am very sorry that you are in this situation. According to the information about Ribavirin, getting pregnant must be avoided in women taking the drug and if their male partners are taking the drug. Exposure to the drug, regardless of how the exposure takes place, (woman taking the drug, partner taking the drug) can result in severe fetal defects. His doctor should have discussed this with both of you and both you and he should be using precautions to avoid pregnancy.
Avatar n tn Same stuff. Rebetol, Ribavirin, Copegus - pills, tablets, capsules...pink, white, blue, tan.......... Don't sweat it. I have a whole huge bottle of Copegus that I never took (someone gave to me when I went from insurance to C2C along with about 500 Ribas) if you want them. I can send them out to you no problem. I won't be taking them - I'm done with all pills tomorrow, finally :) Let me know and I'll hook you up. I am not going to through this stuff out you know?
Avatar n tn If you are having to cut the Rebetol / Copegus (Ribavirin) ask yor Doctor about taking either Procrit (epoetin alfa) which is given to help chemo patients experiencing same problems,or any other therapy that is for the purpose of increasing red cell count. My Mom is fighting Lung cancer with chemo and her blood counts were way down, her Doctor put her on a rx/tx to boost them and within 2 weeks she could resume chemo! It seems that Ribavirin is most effective if it is dosed at 10.
Avatar m tn The bottle of REBETOL (ribavirin) Capsules should be stored at 25°C (77°F); excursions permitted to 15° to 30°C (59° to 86°F) [see USP Controlled Room Temperature]. Good luck with you treatment.. Will VICTRELIS capsules may also be stored at room temperature up to 77°F (25°C) for 3 months. • Keep VICTRELIS in a tightly closed container and away from heat http://www.merck.com/product/usa/pi_circulars/v/victrelis/victrelis_mg.
Avatar m tn VICTRELIS-treated subjects who demonstrated interferon responsiveness at TW4 achieved SVR rates of 81% (203/252) in VICTRELIS-RGT arm and 79% (200/254) in VICTRELIS-PR48 arm, compared to 52% (134/260) in subjects treated with PegIntron/REBETOL.
135456 tn?1301441224 I've had riba made by several different manufacturers. In fact, the next bottle are white, not pink, pills. But I've had different capsules too. It doesn't seem to matter, I relapsed the first time. Hey, wait a second!
1253246 tn?1332076910 Both AUC and C-MAX increased by seventy percent when Rebetol Capsules were administered with a high fat meal: (841 kcal, 53.8 g fat, 31.6 g protein, and 57.4 g carbohydrate) in a single-dose pharmacokinetic study.
Avatar n tn I hope it's less expensive! Rebetol capsules (SP) have been going for about $10 each, and Copegus (Hoffmann La Roche) for about $6.75; Fischer Pharmacy has been able to sell Ribavirin for around $1.25 per pill. Obviously competition is good for prices.

Avatar m tn My Rebetol(ribavirin) are 200mg capsules. Not sure what you were prescribed. I take the Rebetol twice a day. I'm also on PegIntron Alfa2b, had hoped for the RediPens but they were not available, so I'm on the "mix & stick". I was told 4 weeks lead-in, then 24 weeks of triple with Victrelis. I may have misunderstood, but that's what I'm prepared for as of now. Day 11 for me, Wishing you all the best!
Avatar n tn I am going to start a combination therapy, Intron A Interferon 2b, recombinant for injection and Rebetol capsules. I am keeping a positive outlook and keep telling myself that I am doing the right thing. I am a forty one year old male. I do not want lose "quality of life" and I wonder how long it takes to lose a viral load of 600,000. I trust my doctor but I would like to hear from anyone who has been on the comination therapy I mentioned. Thanks.
Avatar m tn I'm taking Rebetol (Schering Plough). I'm UND since week 4, maybe earlier. No change of brand/manufacturer during tx. I'm in week 40.
Avatar f tn How do I store my REBETOL Capsules? Store REBETOL Capsules at room temperature 77°F (25°C). How do I store my REBETOL Oral Solution? Store REBETOL Oral Solution at room temperature 77°F (25°C) or in the refrigerator 36° to 46°F (2° to 8°C).
Avatar f tn It's also know as rebetol, and a few other choice names that I could mention but they would show up as asterisks in this post. When it comes to the pegylated inteferons there is Alpha 2a (Roche)- which is Pegasys and there is Alpha 2b, which is PegIntron (Schering). Whether it Pegasys, plus ribavirin or PegIntron plus ribavirin - that's basically the standard of care right now. The main differences would be in doses and duration of treatment.
Avatar n tn ( My husband has been on Rebetron and Rebetol capsules for the past 7 months. He lost quite a bit of weight due to the medication. However, recently...he had some labwork done and his doctor referred him to a liver clinic here in Virginia. He said there was no response to the Rebetron and the visual count had not returned to normal. I'm really confused since i'm not familiar with the medical terminology. Can anyone tell me what this all means? I would appreciate it sooooooooo much.
408958 tn?1214847183 45 mg/kg weekly over a period of approximately 12 weeks. The maximum known overdosage of REBETOL was an intentional ingestion of 10 g (fifty 200-mg capsules). There were no serious reactions attributed to these overdosages. In cases of overdosing, symptomatic treatment and close observation of the patient are recommended…”.
Avatar m tn (841 kcal, 53.8 g fat, 31.6 g protein, and 57.4 g carbohydrate) in a single-dose pharmacokinetic study.” ROFL, the amount of fat in this diet will kill you faster than the HCV! As far as I know, the rest of what's quoted in here is internet rumor; if anyone else can cite sources, please do.
Avatar m tn I have been diagnosed with Hep C Viral GenoType 1 in 2010. I started treatment in January 2011 with Pegylated interferon alfa-2a (Pegasys) Prefilled syringe 180 mcg subcutaneously once weekly & Ribavirin (Rebetol) three 200-mg capsules twice daily (total daily dose of 1,200 mg). After 29 weeks I never cleared the virus completely but achieved a viral count under 43.

Avatar n tn The cost was $1,206. The Rebetol was filled with 120 - 200 mg capsules. I am to take 2 in the morning and 2 in the evening. The cost was $1,117. I'd appreciate any feedback you can provide! Happy Holidays everyone!
Avatar n tn Pegintron 24 weeks, Rebetol 24 weeks After 24 weeks the amt of virus in the blood will be measured to determine which treatment you will receive.

However, I’m unaware of any study that shows the effect this diet has on viral response. In other words, while it may be intuitively correct, I don’t believe there is any actual science to support this.
189269 tn?1189759425 It was mighty weird... I was actually wondering what else they put into those Rebetol capsules. But I woke up this morning and was normal again. Minor sides so far. The muscle aches are almost gone as it is getting close to next shot day. Wishing you all the best.

That’s a lot of fat!
Avatar n tn Schering-Plough's PEGINTRON (peginterferon alfa-2b) Powder for Injection and INTRON A (interferon alfa-2b, recombinant) for Injection, or INTRON A therapy should be taken with REBETOL (ribavirin, USP) Capsules. Both Peg Intron and Pegasys have the same effect which is to stimulate our own immune system to fight and kill the virus only different molecular structure. I'm not real sure on this but the cost is around $2200.00 a month which includes 4 injections and ribavirin.
