Hi Denzel ,

Congrats on starting, I'm on week 5 now and doing better,

I will say that on my first week I think day 6 I came down with a bug and got chills and fever and upset stomach , but the next day I was ok, so I don't think it was a cold or flu, maybe something the meds were doing killing the virus, I drank lots of water and ate nutritious food, and it's been fairly steady, no real problems to complain about.

I take the pill in the morning with food or coffee, either,  love my 2 cups, I hear coffee is good for the liver so I'm helping too!

Try to get 7-8 hrs sleep a nite.

Congrats on beginning Harvoni.

You should post this on the "on treatment" forum, you'd get more replies.

This forum is supposed to be for post treatment (people that finished Tx).
