Short term memory loss right after taking Harvoni, has not improved, I know it was from Harvoni anyone else have this problem! Major loss. But has not got worse!
yes I had really bad memory problems while I was on Epclusa. Which is the same drug basically as Harvoni. My insurance wouldn't approve Harvoni, but did approve me for Epclusa. While I was on the meds my memory problems were really bad. My job requires me to work with numbers all day. I could say a number and 2 seconds later I could not remember what number I said. I have worked at my job for 27 yrs. and I wonder sometimes how I did not get fired during my treatment it was so bad. Everything in my daily life was effected by my memory loss. I thought I was going crazy. I felt like I was so stupid. It also caused me to be very depressed. I am so glad I'm done with my treatment.
I suffered really badly with the memory loss, it all came back after discontinuation but the 12 weeks flew by.
I wondered what was going on. Im normally a good speller, but during this time I haven't been able to spell. I also can think of what I want to say, but I can't get the word out. catjoto
Finished harvoni 1/2016 successfully.Had severe brain fog during treatment .It's now 9/2017 I am not retaining information.Usually I don't remember what I did yesterday.I forget conversations with my family, I confuse doctors appts and times, I have been loading my daily meds wrong alot of times and I truly believe I done it right and Am wrong.I have been trying to be my own advocate in my current health decisions and I am scared.wondering if there are any legal action against the company regarding this. Everything has been a worlwind since.Will not return to work but I do have fibromyalgia, rls and chronic pain as well. (Wich I had prior) Memory loss has not returned for me.I know it is from harvoni as well.
I definately had short term memory loss while on Harvoni. It was clearly noticeable. Had to write down when I took meds and then would still forget . Had to keep counting pills . Left my purse numerous times at places. Brain fog and memory loss started while on Harvoni. I was just starting a new job and am very surprised I did not lose job during that period. I still have some memory loss. It’s not as bad, as definately as it was on the Harvoni but it is still there. Again, it has gotten better but I still notice some memory loss. I did not have any memory loss before taking the Harvoni. The company must be notified. I’m glad these posts are up.
I had a hard time remembering things when taking Harvoni. It's been 3 years and my short term memory is getting worse. I also have a coworker who has been done with Harvoni a year ago and has worked with me for 4 years, and she has a hard time with short term memory. There is definitely a problem with Harvoni and short term memory.
