So sorry to hear what your Mom is going through. I personely have not heard that nose bleeds are a side affect of HARVONI and I have not seen it listed online websites that I know of. I know myself that I sometimes would rather talk to someone who is going through the treatment as oppose to the Doctors ... But in this case what with all you mothers additional health issues and to be on the safe side ... you should contact your mothers Doctor and get a professional opinion. Good luck!
Hi richard89471 -- so sorry to hear of your troubles. I was treated with different meds but if I remember correctly -- when I had nose bleeds I believe was when I was very anemic. I also think it best to contact your mom's doctor -- hopefully they will check her blood to make sure she's strong enough to handle this treatment being that she has so many other issues..
Will watch for your post to see how you're both doing..
