Uses
Ribamune (Ribavirin) is a type of antiviral medication called a nucleoside analogue. It stops the virus that causes hepatitis C from spreading inside the patient's body. It is a treatment for people with chronic hepatitis C who have not previously been treated with an interferon. It is used in combination therapy with peginterferon.

It is important that Ribavirin is not taken alone. It needs to be taken as part of a complete treatment plan including another drug - usually peginterferon. Your doctor will prescribe a full treatment plan for you.

Ribavirin capsules are taken twice a day - usually with the morning and evening meal. Each capsule should be swallowed whole with a glass of water.
