Hello there. I am on my second month of Sofosbuvir& Velpatasvir tablets. I have recently developed a sebaceous gland abscess on my neck that is infected. I’ve seen a doctor who prescribed Cefproz 500mg twice daily and Loxoprofen 60mg three times daily. I tried checking on the drug interactions chart but couldn’t find the exact drugs. Could you kindly confirm that it’s ok for me to start these new drugs whilst on my treatment. Thank you.

Yes this will be fine.

While these drugs are not listed on the Liverpool Interactions Checker

www.hep-druginteractions.org/checker

Many cephalosporins closely related to Cefprozil (Cefproz) are listed and none interact.

Similarly Loxoprofen is closely related to ibuprofen and naproxen which are fine.
YMMV
