As I am approaching the end of treatment I was wondering has anyone here completed treatment and had 6 month blood work done with results?

I had no sign of virus after two weeks but my GI didn't want me to take another one until six months after my last pill.

I have 14 more days to go .

You are a champion - hard to wait that long. Hope to hear in 2 weeks that you are what I am - cured (although I used another HCV treatment). Let us know!

Hi Marco ,

I live in South Florida  as well but have kept meds in my room the whole time. One good to tell you is that the side effects have gone away after the second bottle.

I hope that we are all clear of the virus after the six months and it never returns

 I also live in Southwest Fla. I keep my meds on the kitchen counter (away from any heat source), in one of those lunchpacks like my son takes to school, with a small cooler pack at the bottom that came in the box w/the meds. I don't think my house gets above 80, but do not want to take chances.
My doc told me to NEVER put sovaldi/olysio in refrigerator and he is in Miami. This has been working so far because I can tell they feel cooler inside the lunchbag.
Hope this helps you both. Good Luck!
