I will be starting Sovaldi and Ribavirion late next month and am wondering what are the most common side effects and how soon after starting the medications might I see or feel any? I'm just trying to better understand what I'm up against. I work full time and I need to know so I can better plan if I have to take time off work and to give my boss a heads up if needed. Any advice would be greatly appreciated ;)
I would plan on taking time off, especially if your job requires anything physical, this is a difficult treatment. Be good to yourself. This is your life. Low blood count and shortness of breath are common and low energy mostly related to the low hgb. I also have shoulder and hip pain. Find it difficult to walk even one block. I took time off work as I work in a busy busy physically demanding job.
