Epclusa - Hey guys I just started taking this new medication my 1st week. How are you all doing with
Hi. This is my second week taking Epclusa. I'm genotype 2. It's been manageable, though I seem to have developed a heat/sun intolerance. My joint pain and fatigue have increased since starting it, but I just figure the side effects are letting me know it's working. I've missed a few days of work, but otherwise very excited to have finally started treatment. Best of luck.
This is my 3rd week on Epclusa. The first 2 were pretty bad with insomnia, fatigue and terrible headaches. Genotype 1a. F3-F4 fibrosis. (advanced)
It wasn't as bad as the Interferon I took 25 years ago but still unappealing.
The last week has been pretty good with the only remaining symptom being insomnia. Hopefully that will go away soon.
One interesting thing: I have had pain in my side for at least 6 months now that was attributed to my liver. Nothing excruciating but bad enough that you don't want it. For the last week I have been pain free. It makes me wonder if my lver was inflamed, the epclusa started working and it is no longer inflamed. Anyone else have this?
Hey, I have hep C geno 3 and took my first epclusa pill 35 min ago. Right nervous lol just found this page and am going through all the questions and answers. It's nice to be in a place where I don't have to hide such a huge part of my life. I hope everything is going well for you so far,
Hi there, I have genotype 3. I started my treatment about 12 days ago. I check in with the pharmacist every week. they recommended that I take the pill in the morning because they've been noticing some of their patients have had problems with sleeping when they take it at night. I take the pill same time every morning with food. That's just me. I think it's critical to stay hydrated. They also mentioned interactions with magnesium so I stopped taking that until treatment is completed. Anything else I take I would wait 4 hours or later after taking the epclusa. I got one of those weekly pill things so I wouldn't get mixed up or forget. I don't think I would, it's so important, but just to be on the safe side. I don't want to do anything to mess this up, it's too critical. I'm not telling anybody at work. Anyway best of luck to you and keep us posted how it's going. I've been sailing through this. I can't point to anything that is a serious side effect so that's pretty amazing. So far so good!
I had genotype 3. Completed treatment 3 months ago. I need to have my 3 month lab work but it was no longer showing in lab work at 4 weeks after starting treatment. The side effects I experienced most were fatigue and slight memory loss. I would forget little things. I would do it again in a heartbeat, though. Good luck! Greatest feeling ever to know I am where I am now when there was a time when I said it would never go away.
