Hi Rick,

Yes, Zepatier is a good drug! I'm going to add a link to the manufacturers webpage for you. It's good to have that on file. It seemed to lose market position after Gilead started hawking Sovaldi, Harvoni and now Epclusa. They had a triple threat and the rest of the drug manufacturers fought for what was left.

The rates of success from Zepatier during the trials ranged from 92-100%. Different variables determine those numbers, but it is a very effective treatment.

Both are very effective treatments. Insurance Companies have Contracts that dictate their preferences.

My thoughts are you have Hep C, an offer of a good cure for it, and you should do it if you Doctor also gives his nod.
