Is it OK to drink alcohol while taking Epclusa for hepatitis C?

I was told by my hep c specialist to quit drinking before starting treatment. She said it would improve my liver count. AS a matter of fact she made it sound like they required it before I started epclusa. SO I took her advise.

They are not contraindicated but it will cause liver inflammation. As Epclusa is already slightly toxic to the liver anyway it comes down to how stupid you are ultimately.

As an alcoholic I can be pretty stupid left to "my own self will."

You are speaking to one (abstinent for about 3.5 years).

Sorry, I meant to imply, if there is something stupid to be done; you can be almost sure that I'll be part of it.

Nice to hear from someone who is a member of the "what was I thinking club?" Then... repeating the actions thinking that stupid might be a different outcome the next 100 times... lol free discount card
