... painful. Anyone suffer from that and know about how long into the treatment did you see some type of improvement on any of your symptoms?
I'm sorry you are going through this bad time but think about coming out on the other side.
I've not had experience with this drug.
However, I looked it up and found harvoni.com provides an interactive personalized website. They also have a # to call.
Of course, I couldn't check it out because it requires entering info.
If it DOES work, it may be a very useful tool.
Mikiala, I recently spoke to the Harvoni helpline who was able to give me information about the drugs components and side effects experienced during the trials. The help line will probably not give you info specific to your husband. As I understand it the ONLY thing Harvoni does is clear the Hep C virus from your body. So any ill effects caused by the virus stop. In my case I also have autoimmune hepatitis, my hope is that without the daily challenge of the Hepatitis C virus, my immune system may be less stressed & I hope to go into remission. My doctor says this is a possibility. Your husband should speak to his Dr. about expectations during treatment & what being Hepatitis C free will mean to his health after treatment. Blessings for healing.
I have been on Harvoni for 9 weeks now. I have been able to work full time. I have no side effects other than feeling real sleepy sometimes. At 4 weeks I had my blood work done and the Hep C was undetectable. I drink over 80 oz. of water a day and I am on no special diet. I take no supplements.
I think most people on the Harvoni have mild side effects. I will be on the medication for 12 weeks. I tried to get Harvoni for 2 years. My insurance company would not approve me because my liver was under level 2 fibroses. I got a grant from Gilead. Once my insurance decided to cover it, Gilead pays my deductible over $700.00 every 28 days. Check with your doctor if you have bad side effects. Good luck!!
