Hepatitis C Treatment and Herbs

There is virtually no safety information about Hepatitis C treatment and the use of herbs and supplements.  Because many medications can interfere with the action of Hepatitis C medications, it is important to discuss this with your treating doctor and not take additional herbs and supplements during treatment period on your own.

Most importantly, if you are on triple therapy with one of the protease inhibitors like teleprevir (Incivek) or boceprevir (Victrelis), you should NOT take St. John’s wort (Hypericium perforatum).
