I start my treatment Thursday and I'm wondering if I'm going to lose my hair and if its going to cause me to gain weight? Will I be extremely tired and sleep a lot? Did anyone feel paranoid on this medication?
I was on Mavyret for a total of sixteen weeks. I had no hair loss and did not gain any weight. I was tired, but nothing extreme and experienced no paranoia.
I had no paranoia but I was sooooooo tired and I had headaches frequently. But I was so grateful to get the medication finally, that I didn’t mind too much. I gained about 12 lbs but I think it was all the laying around and snacking on sweets bc I was too tired to do much. I took my last dose yesterday. I’m really hoping to feel better soon. I started to feel great at about a week into treatment but after that I crashed hard
& mostly stayed home napping. So excited to be done - went by fast. I do feel better but I think I need to give the meds a chance to clear out so I regain energy & run this weight off! Good luck! It took me two years to get ahold of the medication due to crummy insurance, so I’m so glad I finally did this. Oh, & no hair loss.
I just finished an 8 week treatment on marivet. It's 19 days exactly. I gained 24 lbs in weight which I want to lose ASAP. Overall about 8 days of the 8 weeks I had bad bad headaches but drink a litre of water when u take ur tablets and make sure u had a snack beforehand. Tiredness affected me maybe 7 days of the 8 weeks. It's was tough but nothing really bad. Follow my guidelines and u won't suffer at all. It was a learning experience for me. Let my hard learned lessons save u from any side effects at all
