I received the drug 4 days ago but because of my cold I haven't taken any. Was wondering if I should wait a couple more days before starting.
Diney; I don't find any reason that you can't start your medication today. and Remember you must take this medication every day as directed and at about the same time each day. or very close. then I have copied and pasted some of the IMPORTANT THINGS TO REMEMBER FOR YOU RIGHT HERE.((( Avoid taking an antacid within 4 hours before or 4 hours after you take Harvoni. This especially includes antacids that contain aluminum or magnesium (Acid Gone, Aldroxicon, Alternagel, Di-Gel, Gaviscon, Gelusil, Genaton, Maalox, Maldroxal, Milk of Magnesia, Mintox, Mylagen, Mylanta, Pepcid Complete, Rolaids, Rulox, and others).
Taking Harvoni will not prevent you from passing hepatitis C to other people. Do not have unprotected sex or share razors or toothbrushes. Talk with your doctor about safe ways to prevent HCV transmission during sex. Sharing drug or medicine needles is never safe, even for a healthy person.
Harvoni side effects
Get emergency medical help if you have signs of an allergic reaction to Harvoni: hives; difficult breathing; swelling of your face, lips, tongue, or throat.))) me again!!! remember many get headaches too and the best way to handle that is to drink plenty of water. Water is going to be your best friend during treatment. And if the stomach upset does happen read the above about what you can take. But believe me it is well worth this problem now that there is finally a cure. Make sure if you have any problems to call the doctor or nurse. best of luck my friend. chuck1957
