Reviews for Harvoni

Sort by:

For Hepatitis C "I’m on week seven of Harvoni and doing great. No side effects. Had blood work done after six weeks and there is no sign of Hepatitis C. I will still need to finish my twelve treatment and have blood work done every for either three or six months. If still negative, I will be declared cured. What a godsend. I even received financial aid that paid for the treatment."

For Hepatitis C "I contracted Hep C 40 years ago. I found out 25 years ago. While I did eat healthy I did also drink a bit. I never wanted to try earlier treatments due to the poor cure rates and bad side effects. Upon testing, my viral load was low so only 8 weeks was prescribed. The only side effect was that I started feeling better within two weeks. I continue to feel great. 3.5 months after treatment testing showed not sign of the virus and my liver tests are all normal. Also, due to their cost sharing, I had no out of pocket expenses, no co-pay nor deductible which I was expecting to pay, which was to be $5,000. Thank you for this drug. I had been waiting for it for a long time."

I no longer live with the uncertainty of hep c Lol! I felt exhausted that first week and slightly nauseous but now I have so much more energy and feel great!"

For Hepatitis C "I felt I had won the lottery. My insurance Co. paid all but a $25.00 per month deductible. I was put on Harvoni for 6 months as I was a non-responder on the Interferon treatment years ago. I didn't experience any side effects and have cleared the virus. I have cirrhosis so this has given me hope. The Dr.'s and myself aren't sure how I contracted Hep C. I hope others are cleared of this nasty virus."

For Hepatitis C "My husband had Hep C and took Harvoni a year ago. After he took it and was cured he developed fluid building up in the sac around his right lung. It got so bad he had to go every other week to get it drained off. He died 10 days ago from a blood clot. Every time me or him mentioned that this started after taking Harvoni they ignored our questions."

For Hepatitis C "Anyone else have a kidney stone within a year after treatment? I'm hoping these two things aren't related. I was put on 'stone breaker' for a few weeks till it passed the tube then passed out of the bladder. I hope they don't scare doctors out of prescribing pain killers for kidney stones. I could not have stood the nights without a pain killer."

For Hepatitis C "The drug worked wonders and I now test negative for hep c! I did have mood swings on the medicine but that was the only side effect I had while I took the 12 wk regimen. Thankfully I had insurance but I also used the copay coupon and my copay went from 75.00 to 5.00 per month."

For Hepatitis C "Day 4. Been going to docs for 2 yrs getting tests cause of constant fatigue and mental cloudiness. 59 yo male convinced I was going to get news I have cancer, heart disease....something to explain my tiredness and foggy brain. I knew I have hep c for 10 yrs anyway. I did nothing cause I had no symptoms and the 80 k treatment cost made me ignore the knowledge of hep C. Have health insurance now and while getting tested for any reason to explain my fatigue and mental cloudiness , Dr suggested harvoni and insurance company approved. Immediate loss of fatigue and mental cloudiness lifting after 4 days. I been worried for 2 years why I was slowing down so quickly, why my mind didn’t feel as sharp.......perhaps the hep virus produces these symptoms.??. Anyway it’s a good start to my 8 weeks!!!!"

I had no side effects!The doctor said that I have to continue the medication until I’ve completed the full 12 weeks of it."

For Hepatitis C "Forgot to mention in my previous comment that I had also tried the Interferon/Ribavirun combination in 1999. That didn't help at all and the side effects were dreadful. I had heard of Harvoni, but until the Australian government decided to place Harvoni on the p.b.s. the options were out of my reach. The negative comments about Harvoni are relatively few, and congratulations to all those that had positive outcomes, my HepC was gone also. My health is ruined, and the only change was the HepC treatment. The Australian gov. plans to treat some 200,000 people who are HCV positive. I can only hope not too many end up like me!"

For Hepatitis C "HepC for 42 years,type 1a. Took full 90 day course of Harvoni. Three weeks after treatment ended I was in hospital for what I assumed was a serious flu type of virus. I was put into isolation, blood test revealed I had Rhinovirus (the common cold) and I was loaded with steroids and antibiotics. I really believed I was going to die but after a few days I began to improve. A month later I was diagnosed with heart failure. Since then I have had a variety of truly nasty drugs for treatment. One drug 'Amiodarone' also damaged my eyesight. I also have Atrial Fibrillation (irregular heartbeat). I truly wish I had never taken Harvoni. I was far better off before the 'treatment'."

For Hepatitis C "Took a moment to sink in when my doctor casually mentioned that the HCV treatment was on the Pharmaceutical Benefits Scheme. Now 3 months later and no side effects I'm free and so was the Harvoni. Thanks Australia."

For Hepatitis C "I've have had many of the same experiences as many of you guys. I was considering buying my RX of Harvoni at an India Pharmacy but was a little worried of being scammed or worse sold a dangerous counterfeit look alike. So, I decided to take a job at large company like HILTON just to get their wonderful health insurance with low copay. I was over qualified for job but I have been dealing with this HEPC monster for decades so action was necessary. I was at the point where I could work an 8 hr shift then come straight home and sleep. No time for children or family, friends. No personality, aching joints, ZERO energy or enjoyment in life. Just kind of existing. Long story, MY DR got my meds approved in week and I started TX last week. YAY!"

For Hepatitis C "I have 2 weeks left on harvoni. Taking it for 12 weeks total. I've had no side effects and I'll do more blood work when I'm finished. I'm just glad there's no side effects as I am working full time. I didn't know what to expect. But so far so good. Glad I did this. Have had hep C for over 20 years."

For Hepatitis C "My Dr didn't really stay in touch with me through this medication. As a 25 year old with no prior health issues, I was a little scared. I did have headaches, and I suppose the occasional tiredness, but nothing unbearable. For my headaches I'd still take the occasional Tylenol because they did get bad at times. I was on an 8 week treatment and it worked! Here I am 6 months later, completely cured."
