I'm on a 12 week treatment plan design to rid my blood of the HCV using the drug Harvoni. Does Harvoni cause hair loss? Has anyone experienced any hair loss while on Harvoni?
I also am using this drug for the same reason. In the 2nd week I began to experience hair loss. The amount is noticeably higher than usual. I have been researching this possible side effect but you are the first related info I have came across. If this keeps up I will be shopping for a wig.
I am on week 11, around week eight I started getting that isolated it chief feeling and am experiencing minimal hair loss. Nothing like interferon / ribiviran or triple therapy where I lost a lot of hair that did grow back but with those two it was much more than thinning. I have one week left and other than this very minimal hair loss that is not even noticeable I have had no other side effects. I haven't felt this good in many years. I was undetectable at week four. It has been so worth it and I couldn't be happier. I know people say oh don't worry about your hair but my hair is my personality. I understand the issue all too well. My first experience was I lost all my hair only on the right side of my head. Yes it grew back but only to thin really bad again during an added boceprivar which neither worked. Harvoni is a god send. Good luck to you!
Hi. I finished my treatment back in Nov. 2015. My hair is still falling out but like Happy said its growning back out. Altho its very hard because my hair is all different sizes. I tried cutting but since its still falling its a bit hard. I'm Hep C free but only dealing with hair loss and a few other side effect and like I said I finished my treatment last year.
