Avatar m tn First 40 weeks I took Ribasphere (Ribavirin Capsules) made by DSM Pharmaceuticals, Greenville, NC The label indicates that each capsule contains Ribavirin, USP - 200mg For the last two weeks I started to take Ribavirin Tablets, made by Sandoz, Princeton, NJ Each film -coated tablet contains :Ribavirin 200 mg My question: Could it possibly be any difference between the two? What does USP stand for? Could this switch be the possible cause of my sudden drop in hemoglobin?
Avatar f tn Am I the only one on here taking 1,200 mgs of ribavirin, who is going thru Triple Tx? I keep noticing people mentioning lower dosages. I have heard of smaller people taking less, and I am 5'9'', 160 pounds, but I think my Doctor is prescribing this same amount for most of the people in my home group, that I've talked to.

Avatar m tn Decided to start treatment next week though, bygetting interferon shot every Friday, and I am travelling this Saturday. I have only noticed that Ribavirin capsules that pharmacy gave me for 3 months have expiry of October 2014. If I start taking drugs on 15 August, it means 3 packs of Ribavirin will become expired during my treatment, as I will take them till November 15. Should I request pharmacy to change portion of packs?
Avatar m tn The absorption was slowed (Tmax was doubled) and the AUC0-192h and Cmax increased by 42% and 66%, respectively, when Ribavirin tablets were taken with a high-fat meal compared with fasting conditions [see Dosage and Administration (2.1) and Patient Counseling Information (17)]." I am not taking any chances. I need all the help I can get to get rid of this virus so I will eat another high fat meal at 6 pm.

Avatar n tn i just gor a ribavirin refill and they are blue! oval tablets. my last sub. , they were white clear filled capsules. did my mail order pharmacist make an error?
Avatar n tn I'm on week 32 of triple with Victrellis. This weekend I took my ribavirin 600mg twice in a 30 minute period. I admit this is not the first time I have done this. But this time I feel like I have a lead over coat on and every joint in body hurts, stomach cramps..just feel like awful. I skipped my next dose and have reduced 2 subsequent doses to 400 mg each. Any comments?
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.
Avatar n tn faldaprevir, ribavirin and BI 207127 I have to take the tablets every 12 hours. Should I take the tablets in the evening as late as possible because they speed me up or should I take them earlier?
Avatar n tn I have the Pegasys 180 shots once a week, plus the ribavirin 200mg (3) twice a day plus teleprevir, (2) 375mg tablets three times a day. I'm a Veteran so my medical has been free and thank G-d for that. The teleprevir is $400.00 a day. My doc told me every time he writes me a month's script for the teleprevir, it's like giving me a brand new Toyota Corolla...$ 12,000.00 a month.
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.
135456 tn?1301441224 Have you had previous experience with 1600 mg/day of ribavirin? If not, you might start sooner and titer up more gradually to make sure that you can handle the dose. Keep in mind that it can take 1-3 weeks for a change in ribavirin dose to be reflected in your hemoglobin. Also, and again based on your previous treatment experience, consider Procrit (epo) coincidental with the riba pre-dosing for same reasons.
Avatar f tn I forgot my last night 3 Rebstol tablets. What should I do. it is my first week of treatment.
Avatar f tn In addition, Ribavirin has a multiple dose half-life of 12 days, and it may persist in non-plasma compartments for as long as 6 months. Therefore, Ribavirin, including Ribavirin tablets, is contraindicated in women who are pregnant and in the male partners of women who are pregnant. Extreme care must be taken to avoid pregnancy during therapy and for 6 months after completion of therapy in both female patients and in female partners of male patients who are taking Ribavirin therapy.
Avatar f tn Indications and Usage for Ribavirin 'The safety and efficacy of Ribavirin tablet therapy for the treatment of adenovirus, RSV, parainfluenza or influenza infections have not been established. Ribavirin tablets should not be used for these indications.
Avatar f tn Has anyone found any new info on the “high fat food taken with ribavirin” issue? All I keep finding are supposed "sources" that usually lead back to the same study, http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC1804105/ and they are repeating or "gleaning" the same inconclusive data from this one study. Maybe someone knows of a newer study with a professional abstract that was approved for publication?

Avatar f tn html#i4i_section_id_923103dc-10fb-4562-8cc1-fe0c59767db3 How should I take Ribavirin tablets? Take Ribavirin tablets exactly as your healthcare provider tells you. Your healthcare provider will tell you how many Ribavirin tablets to take and when to take it. Take Ribavirin tablets with food. If you miss a dose of Ribavirin tablets, take the missed dose as soon as possible during the same day. You should skip a dose if more than 6 hours have passed since it was due to be taken.
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 m tn At the end of my treatment, I ended up with one extra bottle of Ribavirin, sealed, unopened. There are 168 tablets, 200mg, expiration date 05/2009. If anybody needs it, please contact me and I will gladly send it.
461838 tn?1255793816 called me to tell me my Hemoglobin was low, and I was suffering from anemia, one of the reasons I am so fatigued and sleeping without rest. She cut down my ribivirin 200mg tablets from 5 to 3 a day. Will get blood test in 2 weeks. I asked her if this was causing the ringing in my ears, she said no, but it was why I was so tired. I wonder if these would cause my depression and irritability.

Avatar n tn There is a slight advantage to Pegasys (alfa-2a) The Pegasys needs refrigeration.
4950316 tn?1394188185 The bioavailability of ribavirin 600 mg was decreased by co-administration with an antacid containing magnesium, aluminium and methicone; AUCtf decreased 14%. It is possible that the decreased bioavailability in this study was due to delayed transit of ribavirin or modified pH. This interaction is not considered to be clinically relevant. http://www.drugs.com/uk/copegus-200mg-and-400mg-film-coated-tablets-spc-5377.
