Important Safety Information

Before starting treatment with ZEPATIER® (elbasvir and grazoprevir), your health care provider will do blood tests to check for hepatitis B virus infection. If you have ever had hepatitis B virus infection, the hepatitis B virus could become active again during or after treatment of hep C virus infection with ZEPATIER. This is called hepatitis B virus reactivation, and it may cause serious liver problems including liver failure and death. Your health care provider will monitor you if you are at risk for hepatitis B virus reactivation during treatment and after you stop taking ZEPATIER.
