I suffer from sever arthritis hips and lower back and take pain and arthritis meds has anyone had issue
Of course, we should aways talk to our doctors before taking any medication, especially while on Harvoni or any other treatment. Cermak Pharmacy, located in Illinois, the CVS drugstore who fills my Harvoni prescription and sends it UPS can be reached 24/7 to answer Harvoni questions.
I refuse to take anything other than a vitamin with Harvoni. However, health care professionals told me that aleve, ibuprofen or motrin were the best to take with Harvoni. Nonetheless, they also said that a strong analgesic like oyxcodon could be taken as well. The key is that it not be a combo drug; meaning that it not contain acetaminophen. We all know that acetaminophen has the potential to destroy our liver.
Yes. I was on Harvoni during its clinical trial phase. My treatment ended July 31, 2013. I couldn't really walk my last few weeks of treatment due to the pain. I have now been diagnosed with reactive arthritis which may go away or turn into rheumatoid arthritis. It's been over a year and a half since treatment ended and the arthritis has not gone away. I am however still hep C free. My viral load is negative. It also gave me hypothyroidism.
