About to start Harvoni but worried about Piriton
« on: July 23, 2015, 12:28:21 pm »
I am about to start a 24 week treatment with Harvoni. I paid for it and is awaiting shipment.

My main concern is that I often have nasal allergy and my experience is that taking Piriton would be most effective. Would taking Piriton affect the effectiveness and side effects of Harvoni? Please let me know if you have taken the 2 together. So I will know what effects to look for and what measures to take to alleviate the problems.

Have you spoken to your doctor about this ?  Mine went over what I take and took a few things off my plate for the duration of Harvoni treatment.
