Common Questions and Answers about Ribavirin dog


Avatar n tn Ok just blame it on being distracted! I usally take my ribavirin in the morning (at work) and at dinner (at home) I didn't realize it but I was one pill short (I take 6 a day) this morning at work. Make it up at dinner or not or not is the quesiton. Dare I ask the next question? Has anyone ever felt better while on treatment then before treatment. I know from what I read here a crazy quesiton. But I would swear that I felt better on Saturday (finishing week 7 of tx) then I have in a long time.
Avatar f tn Last week blood test hemoglobin is at 8.7. My doctor just reduced Ribavirin from 1000mg daily to 800mg daily for the reason that my hemoglobin is going down. Blood work again in two weeks and he will see me after the blood test results. He told me he might stop the treatment is the hemoglobin continues to low. He will make that decision in the next visit after seen the results of the blood test he ordered.
446474 tn?1446351282 2 200 mg of GS-7977 in morning 3 200 mg of Ribavirin in morning 3 200 mg of Ribavirin at night (12 hours later) But I am now on treatment and will continue for 24 weeks or transplant, which ever comes first. I stopped my TB treatment today. I will deal with TB after transplant. I just had a cancer screen MRI/AFP and I am waiting for the results... I can't believe that within 4 weeks I will have no viral load for the first time in 42 years!!!
13100769 tn?1445372717 I'm always searching for results from others with the same as me but I don't see much. I have 8 more weeks to go from a 24 week treatment of Ribavirin and Sovaldi. I'm praying for the best but could use some support. Thank you for reading.
233616 tn?1312790796 In comparison with corresponding plasma values of ribavirin following a high-purine meal, Cmax, AUC0-144 and AUC0-∞ of ribavirin following a low-purine meal were 136% (90% confidence internal [CI]: 120%-155%), 134% (90% CI: 118%-153%), and 139% (90% CI: 120%-159%), respectively. This study indicates that dietary purines have an effect on ribavirin absorption. Dosage regimens of ribavirin might need to be adjusted according to the purine content of the meal.
Avatar m tn strator, wondering if you could you post some more info on the company that is making that less expensive Ribavirin? I am being dispensed my third version of ribavirin in as many months. They started with Copegus, switched to Ribasphere after Copegus went "off patent" because of my insurance's co-pay caps on branded vs. generic drugs. I would have had to pay $280/mo to continue with Copegus.
446474 tn?1446351282 I found out today I AM UNDETECTABLE after 2 weeks of treatment with GS-7977 and Ribavirin. Not bad for a previous null-responder to peg-INF and Ribavirin where after 12 weeks of treatment my viral load never went below 360,000.

Avatar f tn Hi, my mother started a course of Harvoni & Ribavirin a few weeks ago. She has been far-sighted for a while and wears glasses for reading. Her eyes are fine otherwise, although she has mentioned that she has been experiencing blurred vision since starting treatment. That's a known side effect of this med combo so we weren't too concerned. But at a routine eye exam today she was told that the pressure in her eyes isn't normal.
Avatar f tn Anemia The primary toxicity of Ribavirin is hemolytic anemia, which was observed in approximately 13% of all Ribavirin/peginterferon alfa-2a- treated subjects in clinical trials. Anemia associated with Ribavirin occurs within 1 to 2 weeks of initiation of therapy. Because the initial drop in hemoglobin may be significant, it is advised that hemoglobin or hematocrit be obtained pretreatment and at week 2 and week 4 of therapy or more frequently if clinically indicated.
Avatar n tn I did my first shot of peginterferon last nite and got the chills and shaking for a bit...is it normal? A littel fever too. Today I'm taking my first Ribavirin...should I expect to get flu like symptoms too? Thanks so much!
Avatar m tn Although a standard meal did not affect ribavirin bioavailability (F1), administration of ribavirin with a high-fat meal increased bioavailability by 46% relative to the fasting state. A high-fat meal prolonged the duration of the zero-order input part of the absorption model, with D1 increasing from 0.498 h (fasting and standard meal) to 0.740 h. The type of meal also influenced the first-order input part of the absorption model (Table 1).

Avatar f tn Just curious- are you doing SOC (ribavirin and interferon) for 48 weeks and if so, is there a reason why your doctor is not considering triple therapy for you which usually means shorter treatment times? 24 weeks vs.
Avatar m tn 8.5 g/dL Once Ribavirin tablets have been withheld due to either a laboratory abnormality or clinical manifestation, an attempt may be made to restart Ribavirin tablets at 600 mg daily and further increase the dose to 800 mg daily. However, it is not recommended that Ribavirin tablets be increased to the original assigned dose (1000 mg to 1200 mg).
1838299 tn?1403496143 If you doc reads the ribavirin package insert directions it says that for anemia the standard protocol is to reduce ribavirin to 600 mg per day if hemoglobin <10 g/dl, first. If < 8.5 g/dL interrupt dose. Then see if hemoglobin level rise. In the clinical trial most patients did rise. Only 4% stopped treatment owing to anemia. 1. The proper protocol is to reduce ribavirin to 600 mg when hemoglobin is less than <10 g/dl.
1084115 tn?1385232189 The mean half-life for multiple doses in the body is about 12 days, but very long-term kinetics are dominated by the kinetics of RBCs (half-life 40 days). RBCs store ribavirin for the lifetime of the cells, releasing it into the body's systems when old cells are degraded in the spleen.
Avatar f tn No luck. 2012- 6 months Boceprovir, Ribavirin, Interferon- never hit undetected. Sicker than a dog. Ugh. 2014- 3 months Sovaldi, Ribavrin and Interferon- undetected during treatment, but relapsed. 2015- 6 months Harvoni and Ribavirin- 12 week post tx SVR12!! I am so happy and thankful to God, my family and friends (including y'all) that this disease is on its way out. It makes all those treatments worthwhile to see the dragon dying in great numbers.
Avatar f tn "my hgb has dropped again and is now 8.3 my riba is now 4oo mgs a day" According to the Ribavirin prescribing label... * hemoglobin <10 g/dL - Ribavirin should be reduced to 600 mg/per day. ( One 200 mg tablet in the morning and two 200 mg tablets in the evening). *hemoglobin <8.5 g/dL - Ribavirin should be stopped.
Avatar f tn 1 In clinical trials, dosage modification of peginterferon alfa and/or ribavirin, erythropoiesis stimulating agents, and transfusions used more frequently in patients receiving boceprevir with peginterferon alfa and ribavirin than in those receiving peginterferon alfa and ribavirin without boceprevir.1 Risk of severe or life-threatening neutropenia, including life-threatening infections associated with neutropenia.
190885 tn?1333029491 i'm really not feeling right....i think my anemia is going way down...sometimes i feel scared to close my eyes...feels like i might not wake up...i'm in bed now i would say 18 to 20 hours a day....i'm on 1200 riba...can i cut down to 1000?...btw i live in the sticks 1 hour to a small hospital and 2.5 hours to a big hospital....my daughter is calling up my doctor too see what they say....so can i reduce the dose????????????????
190885 tn?1333029491 if it takes a couple weeks to get procrit....what are the other options before stopping tx...do you get blood transfusions once or twice a week??i already cut down on my riba from 1200 to 800....i know you can't stop the pl...i'm not doing good at all....almost all the time in bed now...thanks...
691935 tn?1421030690 It's one of those subtle changes that impacts even a walk in a dog park. A neighbor (a dog lover) got knocked down by a friendly dog in a dog park nearby and broke her hip. That's crazy.
Avatar m tn I just looked up all of the side effects of Pegasys, Ribavirin and Incivek and none of them lists tinnitis as a side effect. However, I also have worsening tinnitis. I am on Wellbutrin and Wellbutrin can cause tinnitis. I had the tinnitis (from the Wellbutrin) before starting triple med treatment. However, the tinnitis has definitely worsened since I have been on the triple med treatement (only 2 weeks).
190885 tn?1333029491 Billy, If you doc reads the ribavirin package insert directions it says that for anemia the standard protocol is to reduce ribavirin to 600 mg per day if hemoglobin <10 g/dl, first. If < 8.5 g/dL interrupt dose. Then see if hemoglobin level rise. In the clinical trial most patients did rise. Only 4% stopped treatment owing to anemia. So your doc is changing from 1000 mg to 0 mg. This was never done during clinical trials. So there is no data on the outcome.
Avatar f tn Hi folks, been almost 2 yrs since my last post. Missed ya! Anyway, was diagnosed about 3 yrs ago & put on Pegasys & ribavirin. After 1 month, doc pulled me off of it, was not getting a very good response, may have been doing more harm than good. Now he wants to try it again, even tho my platelet count is way, way low. I think it may be a last resort. Good news is I quit drinking 19 months ago! :) That might be a factor in reattempting this treatment. Anyone else been here, done that?
Avatar n tn I doubt ribavirin on its own could be of benefit. if you cant take interferon, i think you could try milk thistle. it could reduce your liver enzyme levels. you might also try the alternate type of interferon, eg if you tried Pegasys earlier, try Peg-INTRON now, or if you tried peg-intron earlier, you can try Pegasys now. both have different side effects.
