... not bad though but I am weak and I think it's due to my hep C I go to my doctor on my 18 day of this treatment has anybody started feeling better that they think it is due to the treatment of Harvoni I truly feel blessed having a second chance at life I hope everything works out for everybody that is in this program. This will be my first doctor's visit and Labs will be taken on this visit I hope anybody with any advice I surely would appreciate it God bless I am 62 years old and have little scarring on my liver but no cirrhosis. My viral load when I started two weeks ago was at 7 million I'm hoping for some positive results on this first visit of mine this following Tuesday. I am on 20 milligrams of omeprazole I was on 40 milligrams my doctor chose to lower it I hope this does not affect my treatment with Harvoni any answers that would help out I would greatly appreciate it.
You will need to get off the omeprazole .it will do no good taking the harvoni with that perticular medicine. Talk to your specialist pharmacy about alternative. Prayers for you. On your road to recovery. My kroger specialty pharmacy.told me not to take that or vitamins .he said if a vitamin is essential take at least 4 hours apart from the harvoni
I'm on my 22nd day and 56 YO and yes I am tired most days. some days I take nap but always feel like I just dont have it together. Forgetful and grumpy. I feel old. It is worse in the mornings and lessens as the day goes on. I was told things get better as time goes on and it has but slowly.. your tiredness from what I can tell is the Harvoni not your Hep
I was on 40mg of Omeprazole 2 times a day. When I started my treatment my doctor had to change it to 20mg one time a day. It is safe to take 20 MG... but take it at least 4 hours after your Harvoni or Epclusa (which ever treatment you are on) My viral load was very high before treatment... I have been Hep C free 4 weeks after treatment started. I finish my 12 weeks of meds this week. June 21, 2017 Please be very careful on anything you take during treatment. Don't take anything without your doctor approving it.
Omeprazole is a proton pump inhibitor which lowers the acidity in the stomach and unfortunately Harvoni needs the acidic environment to be absorbed. I was told if I had to take omeprazole to take it with the Harvoni in the morning on an fasting stomach... presumably so the Harvoni could be absorbed before the omeprazole kicks in? Best to clear this with your gastro doc...
