I have been on Hep C for 2 weeks
« on: September 24, 2014, 11:16:19 pm »
I have had a few side effects from the treatment but not like other people and what I  have read. I am on  Sovaldi + ribavirin + pegylated interferon for 12 weeks. I wrote earlier about  being sick and having trouble sleeping and sometimes being angry. I am just curious what else I will have.

Dawn,
These are very typical side effects for the meds you are on. In fact, what you are going though is so common, I wrote 2 books to help people through it. Quite a few people on this forum are on Sovaldi/Olysio, so they will be having an easier time of it. Here is some info to help you: http://hcvadvocate.org/hepatitis/factsheets_pdf/Treatment_Side_Effect_Guide.pdf There is more at: http://hcvadvocate.org/hepatitis/treatment.asp
