Daily fixed-dose combination of glecaprevir (300 mg)/pibrentasvir (120 mg) for 8 weeks

Daily fixed-dose combination of sofosbuvir (400 mg)/velpatasvir (100 mg) for 12 weeks

The medication you should take should be determined by your doctor.

I believe the 2 newest meds that were approved in the US were Vosevi and Mavyret.  I don't know what meds are approved right now in Pakistan.  I think that sometimes some drugs are approved in some countries and not in others.  These drugs are pan-genotropic. Not sure if I'm saying that right. Anyhow, what that means is that they covered multiple genotypes, like Geno 1-6.  If you google them, you can find out more details about them.
