Glad to hear happy61,

Getting started is kind of a rush, because everything is new, you feel uniquely strange the first few days and you can tell there a war going on inside you!

But, it's a good war, the kind you win!  I'm on week 6 now and feeling like i can make it!

Good news!

Glad to hear you have made it to 6 weeks.

You are correct it is a good war!

I have had this for 41 years so I am really looking forward to having energy! I have lived my life, but I do admit the fatigue has been debilitating for years. It just became my NORMAL.

So happy for everyone with Hep C to have a cure and life to look forward to!

Thank you! I have been drinking 64 to 72 ounces per day.

Today was  DAY 3. I had energy that started about 30 minutes after pill and then 3 1/2 to 4 hours later
It felt like I was getting the flu. Chills, body aches, headache and sleepy. The good news is this passed in about 4/-2 hours and I feel good now. Hopefully this is just my body adjusting to the drug. I am sure this isn't anything
I can't deal with. 8 weeks to cure Hep C is worth it. I feel so bad for all the people that have gone thru the treatments in the past. Hope everyone had a good day today.
