Harvoni (ledipasvir / sofosbuvir) for Hepatitis C: "I'm 16 doses of a 12 week regimen, I take the drug at 5pm I eat about 4 hrs. Before, if I don't extreme stomach cramps and diarrhea, this will last for about 2 hours. Soreness in leg and arm pits and arms, foggy and fatigue easily. I will get my 1st blood work results on mon. Sleepy in about 2hrs. after I take it, and I have insomnia.I do have not a great appetite any more. I'm 65 yrs old and retired. I don't work, so I have that luxury of taking it easy .I don't know how I got it. It's been ticking in me for about 20 yrs.that I know of. I will let you know about my blood work. Good luck everyone and hang in there because it does work."

Harvoni (ledipasvir / sofosbuvir) for Hepatitis C: "One month post treatment of 8 weeks. I had quite of the side effects, the mood swings, insomnia and depression were the worst. However, it was well worth it. My side effects wore off 2 weeks ago. I CAN'T STRESS IT ENOUGH, A WHOLE LOT OF WATER MINIMISES THOSE SIDES. This was especially hard for me because actually I don't like water but I had to drink plenty and it worked 95% of the time. Unlike others I actually lost weight due to the lost of an appetite. Before treatment I had the same problem. I said that to say its different for some people. Just in case you happen to experience the side effects. Don't be discouraged you never know how strong you are until you go through it. ITS WORTH IT, I'M NEGATIVE FOR THE VIRUS."

Harvoni (ledipasvir / sofosbuvir) for Hepatitis C: "I was put on Harvoni for eight weeks...I was Hep C do to massive transfusions I got in Vietnam. Nobody knew about Hep C way back then, I've been told. Anyway, took the drug which I could not afford ($1000.00) a pill. Gilead, the manufacturer paid for it. God bless BigPharma!! One year later....I AM CURED!!! Oh btw I had no noticeable side effect what so ever."

Harvoni (ledipasvir / sofosbuvir) for Hepatitis C: "I've completed a 12 week course of Harvoni successfully at the end of 2016. The pills have worked a treat for me and I only had a slight upset stomach for the first 2 days, after that I was feeling very tired and would run out of energy in the early afternoons at work. A side effect that seems common, but is not mentioned however, is WEIGHT GAIN !!! I didn't change my diet but have somehow managed to gain a solid 10kgs !!! I still haven't worked out a way to lose the weight, it almost seems as if my metabolism has changed altogether - has anyone else experienced this? I'm fit and active, run half marathons, but the weight is sticking to me like the plague. Though in saying all that, thank goodness for Harvoni - it saves lives!!!"

Harvoni (ledipasvir / sofosbuvir) for Hepatitis C: "I have been on Harvoni for 13 days now and wanted to give a update on how I feel. First, my viral load is 5200000 and am a stage 2 and have hep c for 45 years and just found out I had it Oct. 16. I am taking harvoni for 8 weeks. Overall I have been feeling OK. I am still working and was concerned if the medication would effect me and my ability to work. It has been no problem. I have experienced a dull headache but not enough to take anything for it. It comes and goes but doesn't seem to last very long. Before Medication I sleeped about 7 hours now it seems like it is about 5 to 6 but the funny thing is I don't seem to be tired. Will check in again to update."

Harvoni (ledipasvir / sofosbuvir) for Hepatitis C: "Diagnosed with HepC in 2011, After a long battle with my insurance company finally got approved for Harvoni with the help of Patient Advocate Foundation and the fact that the insurance company waited way too long to come to a decision on my original appeal at their denial. Have been taking it now for thirteen days and at my first blood test was told my condition is stable. I haven't experienced any of the side effects so many others have reported. I take my medicine while at work with no problems. I am really praying that I will be cured because I really want to put this behind me. Will update later when I hopefully get the good news that my blood is back clear and untainted. I have faith that I will be another success story for Harvoni."

Harvoni (ledipasvir / sofosbuvir) for Hepatitis C: "Was diagnosed with Hepc in 2015 and started harvoni a few months later... shortly after starting I experienced hair loss, severe depression... skin issues, severe dehydration even though I was drinking tons of water also memory issues. When I reported this I was told these were not reported side effects but if they were would clear up after treatment was over. Well it has been a year and I still have terribly dry skin and feel terrible, muscles aches, tiredness and I was doing half marathons and felt great before. My skin has aged terribly, memory issues, still feel dried out all the time all of which I never had before treatment. Although I am cleared of the virus I wish I had never taken harvoni . I feel it has ruined my life."

Harvoni (ledipasvir / sofosbuvir) for Hepatitis C: "I got hep c 1a from a blood transfusion I received 45 years ago and only found out in October 2016. I have just been approved by my Medicare Part D plan and am scheduled for a 8 week treatment. I will receive my first 30 day supply of Harvoni Tuesday. I am excited and am eager to get rid of this hidden virus that has been apart of me most my life. It will be interesting to see if I feel any different after I am cured. For those of you just starting or going to start taking this medication, I will keep you updated of my progress and what or if I have any side effects."

Harvoni (ledipasvir / sofosbuvir) for Hepatitis C: "Just got the fantastic news yesterday...I am cured...have had for 40 years...tried 5 different medications...the virus hung on tight. I was given 6 months treatment, had a couple headaches but it was a breeze compared to interferon. I now am planning to travel and just enjoy this life without hep c, so long hep c after 20 yrs. I have known I had the virus, and that was on my mind all the time. I was scared to make any plans My driving force was my family and my fantastic grand daughter...she is 6 and needs me around to show her the ropes. Thank you to all the men and women who worked around the clock to create this miracle cure starving off the virus...what a common sense approach...this now is being applied to aids, cancer...xxx"

Harvoni (ledipasvir / sofosbuvir) for Hepatitis C: "Taking Harvoni has been truly a blessing. I couldnt afford the $95k price tag but luckily I got approved thru Support Path on the Harvoni website. I have been taking the pills for 10 weeks now with 2 weeks to go. I have not had and side effects except got a little bit sleepy after taking the pill but that only lasted for the first month. Before taking the pills my doctor told me my viral load was very high. My blood work after the first month showed the virus as undetectable. Couldn't be happier. My brain feels very clear and my energy is through the roof. I drink plenty of water everyday and have been going to the gym and also started eating healthy. I really didn't realize how sick I was until I started the meds."

Harvoni (ledipasvir / sofosbuvir) for Hepatitis C: "I had Hep C for over 30 years. I never really felt bad. I noticed my hair was falling out, getting thinner and my skin looked horrible. I began an 8 week regime of Harvoni the day after Thanksgiving. I was so hesitant in fear of side effects. I got up early and took that first giant pill. I waited, waited and waited for some sort of "sick" feeling? It never came, never!! Each day I took my daily pill. Day by day I began to have more energy, increased positive thoughts. As the last couple of weeks rolled around, my skin and hair had both taken on a new healthy youthful look. My skin looks amazing, it's moist and my hair is thicker than it's been on over 35 years. My nails grow so strong and long, I am a new person! "

Harvoni (ledipasvir / sofosbuvir) for Hepatitis C: "Day 10 of taking Harvoni. Some side effects are a little nauseous, some fatigue along with some energy, because it is attacking my viral load. Have a viral load of 7,000,000. Took the Robitron treatment 20 years ago. Those side effects were horrible. Harvoni is a breeze. If you never took the interferon treatment, you don't know how lucky your are that a treatment came out with minimal side effects."

Harvoni (ledipasvir / sofosbuvir) for Hepatitis C: "Took my last pill of 8 weeks on yesterday. YAAAY! Labs done today. Glad this part of the journey is over. Hoping that I can get back to myself. Though I am grateful, I really wish I would have waited to make a more informal decision about the some of the side effects that are not listed. They hit me pretty hard in the last few weeks. As a person who suffered with the depression it really almost wiped me out. I was told that the side effects are minimal but it varies from person to person. Some of us suffer more than others. "

Harvoni (ledipasvir / sofosbuvir) for Hepatitis C: "My dad took Harvoni but two months after he started to lose all this weight and they found a large Tumor on his liver. The Harvoni caused extreme fatigue and with the cancer tumor it wiped him out in 6 months. There are many many people who had this reaction to Harvoni. After all this I would go for naturopathic treatments instead. ."

Harvoni (ledipasvir / sofosbuvir) for Hepatitis C: "I started taking harvoni on 12-10-16 , on 12-21-23 I had my first labs , on 1--6-17 I had my 1st dr. visit since starting harvoni at that dr. visit I was told my viral load went from 2,000,000 down to 18 I was told a viral load of 15 is fantastic I was 3 points higher than the optimum virol load.I will say this taking harvoni hasn't been a cake walk but harvoni is worth taking even though its some getting use to some of the side effects , one more thing I feel blessed after hearing about all the hardship people are going through to get the drug for me its free I'm a veteran and the VA has a program for qaulifying vets to get it free. Praise God , God bless you all. Hang tuff!! Still have 8 weeks to go, 61 yrs old"

Harvoni (ledipasvir / sofosbuvir) for Hepatitis C: "Well...Put simply it was awesome. I took my first blood work at 14 days and a high 18 year viral load was gone. I don't feel and extra discomfort from normal. Just wished it was out back in the 90's. I then took all the rest of the days thinking it was unnecessary Test after a month maximum"

Harvoni (ledipasvir / sofosbuvir) for Hepatitis C: "Six Weeks into 8 week treatment. Experienced no side effects in the beginning. I do not like water and slowly stopped drinking it as much. Later (in 5 wk) side effects increased(flu like symptoms, nausea, fatigue, moody). Always uncomfortable, I was forced to get back into the habit of drinking water. It actually helped with the discomfort of the side effects. The same day I started back again, drinking lots of water I NOTICED A BIG DIFFERENCE"

Harvoni (ledipasvir / sofosbuvir) for Hepatitis C: "I am age 24, I believe I contracted Hep C through IV drug habit. I thought my low energy and brain fog was because of the many drugs I have done. I had the virus for 2-4 years unknowingly. I finally got a checkup and came back completely healthy except for having Hep C. I workout and eat healthy all the time. My viral load was under 15,000 (very low). I was put on harvoni 8 week and was tested the last 2 weeks of treatment and came up negative. The medication eradicates a resilient virus from your body. Harvoni definitely has side effects do not let any doctor tell you otherwise. The medication is extremely effective however and the trade off for mild discomfort is well worth it. I am now a few months clean of Hep C after taking Harvoni"
