I have acid reflux and I just took my 1st Harvoni pill tonight. I was told I can only take my Prilosec at the same time I take the Harvoni and I have to be fasting, does anyone know how long i have to fast and can I eat right afterwards? I am a little scared to take the Prilosec at all considering it lowers the absorption rate of the harvoni.
I was told under NO circumstances was I to take ANY antacids w/ Harvoni. There would be severe reactions and side effects. Better do more research on that. I was told absolutely NO antacids of any kind.
Hi Roblngy,im sorry to hear about ur acid reflux.i take omeprazole 20mg capsules every morning with my harvoni,at the exact time every day.than i eat my breakfast.i was told u could take both pills on an empty stomach or after u eat.im on my 20 wks and my blood shows no sign of hep c.so try and take it always at the same time together.dring lots of water.hang in there don't be afraid i know i was.lots of luck
I just took my 1st pill an hour ago. I have been taking Nexium for horrible acid reflux
and was told I couldn't take any antacids but if absolutely needed, I could take Tums either 4 hrs. before or 4 Hrs after Harvoni.
Now I'm afraid to take anything. Let's hope I can cope without any.
The best to all, finally a light at the end of this long dark tunnel we've been in.
I was told to take acid pills only if really needed 4hrs before or 4 hrs after but try not to take them at all. I take my harvoni at 11pm due to my work schedule being all over the place.
I was told I could take an antacid over the counter 4 hours before and four hours after Harvoni which I have been doing and after the first month blood work showed no viral load. It seems to be all over the place depending on the doctor. He did take me off of my Omeprazole. Good luck and God Bless...
