Triple Therapy Workbooks

Triple Therapy Workbooks

These two workbooks are designed for patients to keep on hand throughout their treatment course with triple therapy--pegylated interferon, ribavirin and one of the two new drugs: boceprevir or telaprevir.

Features

Content includes tables for patients to track their viral load results and a guide to help them cope with side effects. Other features include:

Treatment Roadmaps:

Colorful graphs that show patients which periods of time they will take 3 drugs and which periods of time they will take 2 drugs, and how their viral load responses may determine how long they will be on treatment.

Sample treatment roadmap

Medication Schedules:

Charts that illustrate how many of each pill are taken at a given time, when pills must be accompanied by food, with advice on how to plan the times to take each dose
