... prescribed meds for this. How long will the nausea last?
Hi CaroleMC -- I had nausea thru-out treatment. I found that ginger helped a lot. I bought ginger beer which helped with heartburn and nausea. It's not as sweet as ginger ale. Use the anti nausea drugs as needed. The first three months are the worst but they go by fast and you'll notice how quickly you feel better. Oh, don't forget to drink a lot of water -- this helps with side affects. I know it's hard to do when nauseas.
I won't lie, this treatment is not easy to go thru but it if you clear the virus, it's well worth it! I was on treatment for 48 weeks and post treatment for 2 months. So far, virus undetected.
Stay positive! You will preserve. I found these websites to be a blessing! You will find there are many of us on treatment.
