Reviews for Ledipasvir/sofosbuvir

Harvoni (ledipasvir / sofosbuvir) for Hepatitis C: "Finished 12 week Harvoni 6 days ago on3/20/19. While doing treatment, my heart rate was slower than normal, I couldn't urinate for 3 days. Then I had 2 more kidney infections. Hair loss still. Weight gain with out a change in diet. Minor headaches during treatment. On 3/22/19 two days after completion of treatment, never missed a dose, never took pill more than a couple minutes late, always at bedtime, my BP rose to 185/105 & 179/110. As if this is not bad enough that I have development of a life threatening disease worse than HepC, I now have knots in the back of my calf with severe leg pain and stabbing headaches. Extremely tired and shortness of breath. I felt so good the last 2 weeks of treatment. I really thought I was getting my life back. Now, my life is in MORE Danger than before Harvoni. Disappointed and afraid. Would never recommend this treatment for anyone."

Harvoni (ledipasvir / sofosbuvir) for Hepatitis C: "I had Hepatitis C for 20yrs. I took Harvoni for six months with no side effects even worth mentioning.I usually get every side effect mentioned when it comes to man made drugs so Harvoni was an absolute miracle drug in eradicating Hep C virus. My biggest shock was I gained 20lbs in two weeks after completion of Harvoni and lost all motivation to do anything. Over three yrs later I barely have the energy to wash my face or brush my teeth. Absolute deep chronic depression worse than anything I ever suffered in my life. I suffered from depression for a good part of my life but nothing like this. Every thing I use to do without even thinking about it overwhelms me so much I just want to shutdown."

Harvoni (ledipasvir / sofosbuvir) for Hepatitis C: "Is there a chat group to talk to others regarding side effects please! [yes, on drugs.com type 'harvoni' then scroll down to 'Harvoni Support Group' ] I have been taking Harvoni for 5 weeks, after the second week I starting getting the worse headaches what might be migraines as I never had them before. The sunlight as it makes me sick to my stomach, and nowI am becoming emotional unstable. I’ve had Hep C for 49 years with no problem and this medication is giving me many problems. I am awaiting my first blood test if there is no good news I will stop taking it as it is changing who I am as I can’t take this pain."

Harvoni (ledipasvir / sofosbuvir) for Hepatitis C: "Wondering if taking Harvoni at night will lessens the side effects? I take it in the morning and I have runny nose, cough, aches, fatigue all day. Would hate to take it at night and have it increase insomnia."

Harvoni (ledipasvir / sofosbuvir) for Hepatitis C: "Took Harvoni for 3 months at a cost of $100,000.My hep C was gone. I contracted Hep C by a blood transfusion many years ago. Without the transfusion I would of died. So I was glad for the transfusion. Just got a blood test a few days ago. The hep C is back. What a waste of money. I should of went with my gut and bought a boat. Chris"

Harvoni (ledipasvir / sofosbuvir) for Hepatitis C: "I took Harvoni for genotype 1a over a year ago. During treatment, I had an increase in fatigue, not much else for side effects. But after two months, I felt my vision was worsening, and so stopped treatment after 9 1/2 weeks. (I was in the cohort for which 8 weeks was deemed OK.) Shortly after stopping treatment, I had a marked increase in fatigue, and shortly after that began to have severe low back pain, which persists a year later. The pain appears to be due to a lactic acid buildup due to a mitochondrial dysfunction. I am at this point quite disabled due to chronic pain and fatigue, and wish I had just lived with the hep C."

For Hepatitis C: "Miracle ! Last year I learned that I have hepatitis C. I simply don’t know where I could get infected. Harvoni course is prescribed exclusively by my heptologist. However, due to My low income, I have been taking generic Harvoni Hepcinat Lp for about 12 weeks which has been bought online. At the moment, the need for further admission has disappeared. Although there is a high probability that treatment will have to be repeated, as hepatitis often recurs. At the moment, I'm recovering. I hope that I got rid of the disease.The side effects arose to a minimum."

Harvoni (ledipasvir / sofosbuvir) for Hepatitis C: "I'm in my last 2 weeks of harvoni treatment. I've been having breathing problems. I go to Dr today he sends me to get blood work. Needless to say none of these things started till my 3rd week of harvoni. I have breathing prob, hair loss, an past few weeks no sleep. Anyway blood work was STAT and the D-dimer test came back elevated which means blood clot. So now I have to get CT scan of chest due to he thinks I have blood clot in lungs. I'm on my last 2 weeks of harvoni and my gut tells me it's the harvoni. I'm scared - I have grandkids I'm not wanting to die, I see where others have died from blood clot on lungs. My question is were they aware of it."

Harvoni (ledipasvir / sofosbuvir) for Hepatitis C: "I found out 4 years ago that I was Hepatitis C virus positive (HCV+) but think I may have had it for 15-20 years. Anyway I have had no energy at all for years and did not realize it was down to the hep c. Then my Hepatology dr mentioned a cure!! I cried as I have children and a 6 month old baby to think of. All my kids are neg by the way. So I have been on 4 days now and woke up yesterday and today feeling sooo motivated and full of energy. I absolutely put this down to HARVONI. I am looking forward to the future very much and I am forever grateful to the NHS (UK) for allowing me to have this amazing drug.."

Harvoni (ledipasvir / sofosbuvir) for Hepatitis C: "I took Harvoni only a few months after its was available. 8 weeks and I was cured. I cried when they told me I was approved for the medicine. I had HEP C for forty years before treatment. Only knew that I had had it the last twenty. Wonder drug."

Harvoni (ledipasvir / sofosbuvir) for Hepatitis C: "I was cured in 4 weeks but had to take it 8 weeks because that was their protocol and I believe taking it for that long altered my autoimmune system. I have been getting hives, swelling eyes, lips swelling, face, joint pain, swelling and red hands which often times hurt at the finger tips and the tips turn very red and also tiredness. I have gone to several types of doctors and have taken several tests over the last 18 months. One doctor believed I had Hypocomplementemic urticarial vasculitis (HUV), but the biopsy turned out inconclusive and I was recently told by a doctor at Johns Hopkins that Black people did not get HUV. So, the only thing that keeps these symptoms at bay is prednisone. I put a complaint in with the FDA regarding how I felt about the length of time I was on this drug and what has happened to me since taking it."

Harvoni (ledipasvir / sofosbuvir) for Hepatitis C: "Was on 12 week treatment. No horrible side effects until week 12. Did not take last two pills. Found it hard to breathe. Got really sick going from both ends. Just water. After five weeks there was no sign of virus. Have blood work done next week. I didn’t think not taking the last two pills would have any effect. Did anyone else have similar experiences?"
