post harvoni treatment how did you feel before and how do you feel now


Posted by @daveniles, Dec 27, 2014

I'm Taking Harvoni for almost 3 weeks.Dont feel any change yet, but I am hopeful. Does anyone have any knowledge on that?


Posted by @smaug48, Jan 18, 2015

Does anyone have information about the Mayo Clinic treating people for Post Interferon Syndrome? I had 92 weeks of interferon for Hepatitis C (which didn't work) 2008-2009 and now feel much worse than I did before starting treatment. Any information would be appreciated, thanks.

I have had chronic hep c for at least 10 years and I thought it was a death sentence! 3 weeks ago I started taking Harvoni and went for a blood test-after 3 weeks my liver levels were normal and no signs of hepc levels were detected in my blood! I hope every one can take this mdrt cured!

I have been diagnosed with Hepatitis C and want to know more about good foods to eat and natural remedies to combat this disease without drugs if possible. Also want to consider any info you have on Harvoni Medication?

Hi @sharonsmith,
How are you doing? Did you decide to take Harvoni?

@afterthetreatment would really like to connect with someone who's been there.

2 months post treatment I am feeling totally unmotivated about anything a bit depressed I'd say, and tired. Really thought I would be feeling better, but ? My platelets are low, have had my spleen removed three years ago. Anyone have elevated white blood count? Mine was like 13.

Hi Bob, I had Sovaldi and Ribo for 6 mo. My platelets dropped to 10 prior to treatment and had to have my spleen taken out. 2 yrs later, treatment. I felt lethargic ALL the time prior to treatment, now 3 mo after treatment tired 40 percent of the time. I also was so foggy minded, I could not think straight before treatment, now I am starting to get my brains back ! I had no detection of Hep C at 3 weeks into my therapy. I have to get blood work this week to see how it's going 3 mo after treatment. It's been a very heavy cross to bear, praying this new yr will give me a chance to feel well. I am genoType 3 . Insurance wouldn't cover harvoni for me. How about you? C

I have had hepatitis C for almost 20 years , I went through interferon and Ribavirin treatment a few years ago , after five months I was clinically depressed and had to go on antidepressants . After six months I stopped with no positive results , ( I wouldn't do it again ) then this year my doctor looked me in my eyes and told me he could cure me with Harvoni, i'm down to my last 10 days and have had two blood tests both showing viral load undetectable . I still don't feel great but I know that the disease is dead , and I plan on living my life the best I can . I've been sober since March 18, 2004 and my life is great on most days . I hope this helps somebody .
