Harpster1953, Yes and the cough should go away, Some say to continue drinking plenty of water and it helps and even more so for the people that have headaches. Keep with it. so many are doing so good for something they had no answer for just a few years ago. Here is a copy and paste that shows the most common side effects and you well see cough close to the top. MAKE SURE YOU DON'T MISS APPT FOR BLOOD WORK AND WHATEVER THE DOCTOR WANTS THIS IS A SLAM DUNK MY FRIEND.

Some of the side effects that can occur with ledipasvir / sofosbuvir may not need medical attention. As your body adjusts to the medicine during treatment these side effects may go away. Your health care professional may also be able to tell you about ways to reduce or prevent some of these side effects. If any of the following side effects continue, are bothersome or if you have any questions about them, check with your health care professional:

Yes, I had labored breathing when I did any heavy activity or fast walking. I also had headaches. Actually I still do. I really never had headaches before the treatment. Now that I am finished with the treatment I still headaches, just not as many. And sadly, the treatment didnt work for me. My doctor says it is because I have type 3. The worst type.

Good luck and Good Journey

Thanks for response. This is only Day 15 for me. I also have Type 3, hoping for the best. I'm sorry the treatment didn't take. It's been with me for over 40 years (too long).
Is there anything else they can try? Take care.
