Hello everyone. I just started with Epclusa; (Hep C/2B genotype and history of Hep B and A, approx 2003) and I drink A LOT of water and exercise 4-6 times per week. My question is: Anyone else experience terrible smell/scent of sweat? My body odor is aweful.
Are you not concerned about the reactivation of HBV with Epclusa? It is not just a possibility; it can recur or get worse. Their is no reason to smell awful if you practise good hygiene and I would be concerned about Liver metabolites giving a bad smell as with, for example alcohol or amphetamines or just plain poor liver function.
You are not alone in noticing this side effect. I'm approaching month 2 of the 90 day Epclusa regimen and noticed a distinct increase in the regularity and pungency of my sweat over the last 2 weeks. I'm a very hygienic individual with a relatively static diet and daily regimen, the Epclusa is the only recent deviation from normalcy that can account for the smell. 60 more days or so, let's hope the girlfriend sticks around!
