Reviews for Zepatier

For Hepatitis C "I started Zepatier in July 2016 and completed the 12 week program . I did have some side effects which included headache and fatigue but that only lasted for the first few weeks . I found that while taking the medication you kind of feel a little off/not yourself but I continued to go to work throughout the program . My 4 week blood work came back virus not detected as did my 8 week and 12 week end of treatment . I just received my 6 month bloodwork and the virus is still not detected . I was a little worried when I first started taking this medication about side effects and the final outcome but as I look back now the decision was the right one and outcome was what I hoped for ."

For Hepatitis C "Had hep.C for 35yrs. Started Zepatier/Ribavirin with viral load of 16,000,000.(16wks.) 3rd. wk.went down to <15 viral load. 7th. wk.,un-detectable. Feel much better, only annoying side effect is scalp lesions, face has red dryness, chin, a little scabby-dry it's a small thing though. Think its from ribavirin."

For Hepatitis C "I'm a 64 y.o. male who has had HCV1 for about 35 years. I have had my liver checked regularly at the VA hospital for the last few years and because its functions were good, was told to postpone treating it because better treatments were 'right around the corner.' I have watched several friends, including my ex-wife, go through interferon treatment and every one experienced negative side effects. Its administration was complicated and much longer than Zepatier's 1/day for 12 wks. My viral load went from 8,000,000 to 43 in 6 weeks. I have been drowsy and it has affected my mental state but only in a positive way. HCV's impact on our minds is variant and getting rid of it may take some adjustment. But it beats the hell out of cancer."

For Hepatitis C "I DO NOT RECOMMEND Zepatier because of its long-term side effects. Before starting the medication, my father was able to walk around and care for himself and get things done. During the 12-week course of Zepatier, he reported extreme fatigue among other side effects. He would often have to nap after waking up mid-morning, then again after 3 or 4 hours. He is an avid cook, but did not have the energy to cook, and experienced a decrease in appetite. 3 weeks AFTER he completed his 12-week course of Zepatier, he is worse than he was before starting. He is still unable to stay awake throughout the day. Every little task exhausts him before he can complete it."

For Hepatitis C "I am on my last week of 12 taking Zepatier and have had absolutely no side effects EXCEPT I have gained 6 pounds while taking this drug...not sure why I just want to carb load. I was on this site wondering about long term effects on my body from taking a drug that I know nothing about but I will not have hep c, the virus is now non detectable in my blood tests after having it for over 40 years."

For Hepatitis C "I have just started Zepatier and in the morning I will start my fourth day of treatment. Current side effects are not noticeable other than extremely fatigue the first two days. Today I felt just as tired as normal, since chronic fatigue is the most noticeable side effect to my Hep C. I am set to do bloodwork every two weeks throughout my treatment and see my physician every three. I will update this as my treatment progresses but wanted to post incase others were looking for feedback like me. Hopefully even this little bit helps someone know what to expect from their first dose of Zepatier. Stay strong and God bless"
