Ribavirin nebulizer

Common Questions and Answers about Ribavirin nebulizer


Avatar f tn This was shown in a retrospective analysis of a large, randomized, placebo-controlled trial in which patients who achieved RVR had an SVR rate of approximately 90% regardless of whether they received peginterferon alfa and ribavirin, standard interferon and ribavirin, or peginterferon alfa monotherapy. In addition, the likelihood of SVR patients with genotype 1 infection who achieve an RVR does not appear to be affected by shortening the duration or reducing the dose of ribavirin.
Avatar n tn I am a 54 year old male, non-smoker with chronic asthma and bullous emphysema. I was diagnosed about 10 yrs. ago with the emphysema but never really took it seriously and have not really treated this disease aggressively. I do take theophylline, advair, albuterol & cromolyn in a nebulizer. Had pleurodisis done on my right lung after a pneumothorax in the early '70s. About 6 yrs.
5247698 tn?1374543860 I am in week 13 of the three drug treatment (Ribavirin, Incivek, Interferon). I have just stopped taking my Incevek at week 12 as planned. I was ordered to stop the Ribavirin until my red and white cell count go up as I understand it (been 10 days) but I still have to keep up the Interferon. No side effects until week three. I woke up one day in week three and could not breath. I thought that I had a lung infection but later found out it was a side effect of one, if not all three meds.
80575 tn?1207135964 meaning the virus can't be detected six months after treatment ends. HCV treatment with ribavirin and interferon causes severe side effects, so many patients quit the long regimen too early. Of 71 HCV patients studied, 21 finished with a sustained virological response: 12 of the 22 cannabis users and nine of the 49 nonusers. "Modest" cannabis use may offer symptomatic and virological benefit to some patients...
Avatar f tn My husband was treated for Hep C, 24 weeks interferon and ribavirin. Reached SVR. Treatment finished at end of February 2014. Went through hell with him whilst on treatment, and took a long time for things to get get back to some normality but now we seem to be going backwards. He says he is now over the treatment but I don't think so. He turns really horrible quickly, very much into himself.
Avatar m tn Long-term follow-up of patients who have cleared hepatitis C virus (HCV), either spontaneously or after successful therapy with interferon and ribavirin, suggests that the likelihood of recurrence is low. This conclusion is based on analysis of HCV RNA assays. However, HCV RNA assays have a variable range of detection, especially at low viral levels, and no assay results can completely eliminate the possibility of the virus's presence.
