Standard Dose

Three tablets once daily with food. Each tablet contains 100 mg of glecaprevir and 40 mg of pibrentasvir for a total daily dose of 300 mg/120 mg. It is important to take all three tablets at the same time—do not separate throughout the day. See treatment duration tables at positivelyaware.com/mavyret. The number of weeks on treatment depends on such things as cirrhosis status and previous therapy. New oral pellet formula approved in June now allows dosing in children age 3 and older (as opposed to age 12 and older previously), without cirrhosis or with compensated cirrhosis, based on weight. (See Briefly, page 6).

Take your missed dose as soon as possible unless it is less than 12 hours until your next dose. Do not double up on your next dose.

Black Box Warning

Before starting treatment with any direct-acting antiviral (DAA), including Mavyret, patients should take a blood test to check for hepatitis B (HBV) infection. HBV infection could worsen or reactivate during or after DAA treatment, potentially leading to serious liver problems, including liver failure or death. People with current or past HBV infection should be monitored during HCV DAA treatment, and some may need to take HBV treatment. See HBV Reactivation on page 37 for more information and consult your medical provider.
