Are Harvoni side effects cummulative?
« on: December 18, 2015, 12:03:12 pm »
Hi all:

I last posted on or about October 2, 2015, when I began my Harvoni 12 week TX. Thankfully since then, I have tested UD with normal-ranging AST/ALT on November 2nd and December 2nd. My final dose is a wonderful Xmas gift on December 25th!  Since the beginning, my side effects have been almost negligible.  A bit more tired then usual and an occasional headache. About two weeks ago, I started feeling way more fatigued than before.

My question is this:  Are the side effects cumulative?  Has anyone experienced these cumulative side effects? And post treatment how long does it take until fatigue goes away?

Thanks everyone.

Hi, Shenny. Everyone's experience is different. During my 12-week Harvoni treatment, I had intermittent, very mild side effects. After the end of treatment, I did have several periods of several days each of such fatigue that I needed to sleep extra hours. The last month or so, though, my energy level has been good -- definitely better than before treatment, although not as high as when I had the "Harvoni High" (I was one of the lucky people who experienced having lots of extra energy while on Harvoni).

Congrats on the great 11/2 and 12/1 lab results, and Happy Holidays.

9/29/71 transfusions
HCV genotype 1a
7/09/15-9/30/15 Harvoni

Before treatment:
Viral Load 9,490,582
FibroScan 19.5 kPa [F4]
ALT 262
AST 217
ALP 183

Most recent:
FibroScan 7.6 kPa [F1-2]
ALT 15
AST 20
ALP 85
