Epclusa (Sofosbuvir/Velpatasvir) is a prescription medication used to treat chronic hepatitis C in adults and children older than three years. Hepatitis C is a viral liver infection that can cause inflammation, liver damage, or liver cancer. Epclusa is a combination drug that may sometimes be used with another antiviral medication like ribavirin to treat advanced cirrhosis. The active ingredients in Epclusa are Sofosbuvir and Velpatasvir. Sofosbuvir belongs to a class of drugs called nucleotide polymerase inhibitors. It works by decreasing the amount of hepatitis C virus (HCV) in the body. Velpatasvir belongs to a class of antiviral medications called HCV NS5A replication complex inhibitors. It works by stopping the virus causing hepatitis C from spreading inside the body. Epclusa is sometimes used in people with HIV. This medicine is not a cure for HIV or AIDS.
