Harvoni (ledipasvir / sofosbuvir) for Hepatitis C: "The first week I took this med it kicked my butt. My symptoms were fatigue, nausea, headache and insomnia. I then started to drink a lot of water And I was feeling so much better (fatigue here and there) but nothing you can't handle. Totally worth it!! Drink lots of water to stay Hydrated!!!"

Harvoni (ledipasvir / sofosbuvir) for Hepatitis C: "I'm male 58 years old. I've been sick for sometime. Had been tested for Hep C before and was negative. Many doctors-varied opinions what was wrong. Then I walked into a doctor that in short after looking at all my blood testing had me re-tested for Hep. Surprise! it came back positive...This after I was scanned and showed stage 4 cirrhosis and basically felt like crap. Had a few other issues but doctor checked my meld count and got me approved for Harvoni and I have been taking for 6 weeks. Hard for me to say if medications side effects are extreme. Have had similar issues for awhile but some days keep me up or weirdly make me groggy mid day. I'll post again after my bloods done and see Dr next week. God Bless you all."

Harvoni (ledipasvir / sofosbuvir) for Hepatitis C: "Want to give a update. I have been on Harvoni for 4 weeks and just had blood test for CMP, CBC, HCV and PCR all came back normal. I must say there is a lot of anxiety waiting for results with this condition. So relieve they came back normal so I am hopeful. I have 4 more weeks of medication to take and then more blood test. Can someone explain, if test come back normal after 4 weeks you are not cured then?"

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! "
