Hi Dot. And welcome to the forums, and to the treatment journey! :) Which treatment are you on? Harvoni? Viekira Pak? Sovaldi? Perhaps you could create your sig file with some of your info (i.e., what treatment you are on, when you started, your genotype, viral load, fibrosis stage, etc.) and that info will then be automatically appended to any of your posts. That way it makes it easier for people to answer. :)

The general advice here is to drink lots of water! That helps with a lot of side effects - especially headache. I was drinking close to 1/2 gal. of water a day.

Side effects and their duration do seem to differ for everyone - even people on the same treatment.

Do keep us updated, and best of luck!
