Ribavirin (C8H12N4O5) or Tribavirin (the latter is a derivate, but both are generic names) is a type of antiviral medication, listed in the WHO’s list of essential medicines. It has an extensive list of applications and comes in almost 15 branded versions.

Application and use of Ribavirin

Ribavirin is usually taken by mouth if it is under the shape of capsules or film-coated tablets. However, there is also an inhaled version and a solution for injection. The most common use and application/use for these drugs is the treatment of hepatitis C. Nonetheless, if the patient is given Ribavirin to treat hepatitis C, they will likely also be given other medications like Simeprevir or Peginterferon alfa-2a, alfa-2b. Moreover, this medication can also be used to treat and heal RSV infections and viral hemorrhagic fevers that include Hantavirus, Crimean-Congo hemorrhagic fever, as well as Lassa fever.

How does Ribavirin work?

Ribavirin works on both DNA and RNA viruses. The drug itself is a ribonucleic analog that suppresses and can entirely cease all RNA synthesis. By being a nucleoside inhibitor, Ribavirin can stop viruses from replicating. Once incorporated into RNA, this medication pairs with cytosine or uracil and stimulates mutations in the replication processes of RNA viruses. This process is called hypermutation. Hypermutation is fatal to the RNA virus. For DNA viruses – a detailed explanation is yet to be discovered, but the effectiveness is already proved.

Daily dosage & other important info

The daily dosage is administered and selected by the health care specialist or doctor. If it is a capsule – it should be taken with food and swallowed whole. A tablet or liquid form or Ribavirin might be administered otherwise. However, patients should always follow and be familiar with the recommendations and instructions on the labels to minimize the risk of side effects and/or overdose. The daily dosage could be altered during treatment. Ribavirin is a drug that can cause dehydration, so lots of fluids must be consumed. If this is not given proper attention, gum disease or similar issues could arise. Repetitive medical testing is required for Ribavirin consumers.
