I don't know enough about S+O to speak to this, but I do know that this is typical for the interferon-based treatment. Here is what I do know - you are almost done, and you are tough, and this will pass when you are done. Keep your eye on the prize.

I also feel fatigued at all times. I don't want to get out of bed some days.
I have had severe muscle/joint pain, to the point of not being able to walk sometimes. Sometimes the pain is so bad, I just cry. I can't wait until I am done with these meds, however, they are still a miracle drug. They are saving people's lives everyday. I am also undetectable after just a couple of weeks of therapy. I found out in June that I was + hepc, don't know how long I had it. It was living silently in my liver, had no symptoms at all.

Hang in there. It will get better! You will feel like a brand new person when all this is said and done! Good luck and keep looking for a better day!

Willie G, you have such a way with words.lol  Yes I have 3 days of pills left and my last blood work Wed.
I think I have a sinus infection.  Do feel better, but can not stay awake the last few days I sleep most of the time.  My daughter thinks its the meds and my body needing that rest.  I am just going with it and sleep when I have to.
I am so dreading winter they are predicting a bad one.
Sorry about your rosie problem.
Take care and we are almost there.
