This question has been submitted many times before and the answer has always been the same! No alcohol during the HARVONI treatment. Most doctors will tell you that from the beginning. It's only a very small sacrifice considering the future outcome of this " miracle" medication that will cure us all! If you don't want to tell anyone about your situation, just use an excuse like... " I am making a change with my health, diet etc and I am excluding all alcohol for now"! Remember, you do not want to do anything that interferes with HARVONI in any way! Order a sprite! Good luck.
I'll actually answer the question you asked. Once you have the bit of paper that says SVR and you have finished you will need to have your liver function assessed as that will determine if you can safely drink at all. Seriously, I feel that you should get a doctors opinion.
In my case, my drinking days are over even if I were to be cured tomorrow.
This forum is a good place to find out people's personal experience with Harvoni and you might also get some unqualified opinions. Your question about can you drink socially after treatment would depend on the condition of your liver and would best be addressed by a professional. I believe any technical inquiries such as this should be answered by your Doctor. That will be your best source for this kind of information.
