Look up "Pharco Corporation".  There is contact information and list of drugs they make.   Contact them and ask about the drug you received.  Never heard of Pharco Pharmatic.   Often online drugs are sold by a company that can be confused with genuine  company selling  the drug.    Contact Pharco
and ask.  I don't see ledso on their website.

This sounds like something that requires research prior to purchase - if for anything to ensure you don't purchase a counterfeit.

I found this but I don't think they are talking about Harvoni but rather a different combo

Pharco Pharmaceuticals, Egypt's largest drug firm, announces results from a Phase 3 clinical trial assessing the combination of Gilead Sciences' (NASDAQ:GILD) sofosbuvir (different formulation than Sovaldi) plus privately held Presidio Pharmaceuticals' pan-genotypic NS5A inhibitor ravidasvir in patients with HCV genotype 4 infection. The data will presented today at The Liver Meeting in San Francisco.

Results from the 300-subject study showed that treating HCV-4 patients with sofosbuvir 400 mg and ravidasvir 200 mg once daily for 12 weeks resulted in cure rates (SVR12) of 98% overall (n=255/261) and 100% (n=163/163) in non-cirrhotic patients, suggesting that ribavirin in unnecessary for these patients even if they failed to respond to treatment with interferon. No relapses were observed.

According to Sovaldi's package insert, its HCV-4 cure rate is 96% (n=27/28) when combined with interferon and ribavirin per results from the NEUTRINO study.

HCV-4 is the most common type of HCV infection in the Middle East.

Pharco licensed ravidasvir hydrochloride in Egypt from Presidio Pharma in August 2014.

Can someone please confirm what is the brand name of Harvoni in Egypt? Is it sold under the same name (Harvoni)?
Suggest you post as a new question not on the end of a two year old post

Why not get in the US by prescription?
