I would like to know if anyone is experiencing long term side effects. I was told I had Hep C and it was a shock. I have never engaged in any of the risk activities, never had a blood transfusion, never stuck a needle in myself etc etc. I took Epclusa 2 years ago and had mild side effects. I was later pronounced Hep C free. I now suffer from inflammation! From digestion problems to joint and muscle pain everywhere. No one can tell me what is wrong nor how to fix the issues. I feel sick and I can hardly walk from pain in my legs, back and hips. I wonder if it is from food, environment or if Epclusa could have trigged some kind of reaction in my body.
I have been off Epclusa 2 years also, when i was on it had severe pain in legs also, i still have problems with legs, sore feel weak. Lost alot of hair that never came back, but it is what it is.
I also took Epclusa in 2016. I have all the symptoms that you are claiming and my doctor is done numerous blood test for arthritis, lupus, everything you can think of. I keep telling him it could have been a a side effect from Epclusa because I was totally fine before I started taking it and I've had severe blood pressure issues since. How many people have reported these symptoms?
I contracted Hep C in Gaberones Africa from drinking at an hotel. All the classic signs on Hep C were apparent 6 weeks later. I do not engage in casual sex or take drugs. My Epclusa treatment finished 11 months ago and I also had leg pain and bad indigestion. My lingering side effects are that my abdomen swells occasionally and that my blood pressure is very high, which was not a problem before taking this drug. My gastroenterologist dodges the question and the manufacturer, when I asked the designated nurse to tell me how long I could expect side effects, read a 2 minute disclaimer and just told me that the drug should be out of my system by now. Trying to find out how it affects the body is difficult, but I get the impression that my liver is aggravated, but dont know what food if any may contribute to the problem.
