What meds to I stay away from taking harvoni... and how well does it work on hep c viral strain 4
HARVONI is a cure for HepC! I took it for 6 months and the virus is undetected 3 months later!!!
You may get headaches and fatigue, but eventually the headaches will subside especially if you drink plenty of water! Its good to exercise and eat healthy during the treatment. I never had an upset stomach. I took my HARVONI at dinner and slept well. Just remember to be thankful that you are taking this medication that will cure you!
Harvoni is a cure for Hep c I showed negative at 8 wks... 4months later I am still negative. I had it for 20 yrs and took the interferon treatment and got pulled off in 3 months they was to toxic for me. I took the treatment for 12 weeks. as far as medication to avoid they told me to not take any stomach medicine like for heartburn and upset stomach like prevacid or any diarrhea medicin if I had to absolutely take something to take it 2 hours before or after my harvoni. I took my harvoni at night. Symtoms I hadhad was headache more fatigue , nausea I actually had less appetite at first then more appetite and craving sugary sweets around week 8 and I gained the weight i lost back. And I had more achy pain and some brain fog... also I could not sleep... being extremely fatguied and not being able to sleep probably had a lot to do with the memory and brain fog. I started getting energy back so my body had all this energy that it has not had in over 15 yrs...
which probably had something to do with not sleeping. Everyone is different but you are at a good website for information and support. Good luck.
I've just about gone blind looking for something and the best I could come up with: 'excellent for type 1a but less effective for type 4'. As everything was presented as correlation coeffients. I don't have time to learn new math. I suspect the treatment regime might be extend from or to 12 weeks (depending on some fairly simple criteria).
St Johns wort was the only one on the list but it mostly said no drug interactions reported/recorded. St Johns wort artificially lowers blood plasma levels of one of the components of Harvoni (NOT a good thing)
