“With Hep C genotype 1, liver cirrhosis and earlier treatment with Pegasys, Copegus for 48 weeks and initially also Olysio for 12 weeks I was free from the virus during treatment, but only 2 weeks after completed course of treatment, viral content was again present. In October 2014 I started a 6 month viral treatment consisting of Sovaldi and Daklinza and I'm happy to let you know I am still virus free. Had no side effects during treatment and my doctor calls the new anti-viral drugs a real cure for 9 out 10.”
“I had Hep-C geno type 3a, took Daklinza 60mg per day and Sovaldi 400mg per day together and after 27 days of 27 tablets each, I had blood work and was cleared of Hep-C, I'm finishing it all just in-case of the 12 week program of 3 scripts of 28 pills each. I had a few headaches and itchy skin and at first felt weak when I took them in the morning so I changed it to the evening and everything was fine. I was approved to take Benadryl, 2 in the morning and 2 at night and it helped the itching, could not take any pain medicine for the headaches. My health insurance covered all but my one time deductible of $6000 and after that I paid nothing. My nurse found a company to pay my deductible.”
“I have completed four weeks of sovaldi and daklinza, and my one month blood work shows the virus is undetectable. I have had very few super mild side effects, and if I wasn't sort of looking for them might not even notice. I feel like my heart beats hard sometimes and have had some episodes of palpitations which gives me anxiety, but that's it. It's a dream compared to what I've heard about past treatments and im so glad its available and that my insurance finally approved it!”
“I take Savodi and Deklenza together once a day and genotype 3A. I've had a few side effects that's listed but nothing that I can't deal with. The most Bothersome side effects for me is it feels like my insides are slightly burning. I can hold my hand and inch from my body especially over my tummy area and I can feel heat radiating off of my skin Two weeks after taking these medications together my RNA came back less than 15 so I'm completing this course I'm very excited”
“I am now Hep C cured After being on Dakinza and Solvadi For 12 weeks July 2016 finished September 2016 Only side effects was not sleeping well some nights but my experience using these drugs was positive. My last blood test was in December 2016 my doctor said no hep c detected and my liver enzymes are all normal. He advised me to be vaccinated for hep A and B Hopefully soon there will be a vaccine for hep c. I'm thankful to be cured and thankful my insurance covered the drug costs.”
“I guess I am the black sheep amongst the flock. I took Daklinza and Sovaldi which made my HepC undetectable, but since taking those I have a hand and lower forearm problem. Started on the hepC meds around May of 2016. Hand issue started May of 2016. I would get scabs on different places on my hands. Sometimes the spots would bleed...looked like severe dry skin. Went to 3 dermatoligists, a top notch liver doctor, my family Dr, and the Gastro Dr that got me on the HepC meds. None of the above can figure out what is going on. It is now Sept 2017 and basically the same symptoms are going on. Now I have a severe rash on the lower part of my forearms, so severe you could strike a kitchen match on them. No one seems to be able to help.”
