5 Bottles of Harvoni on the wall!
« on: April 11, 2016, 03:53:08 am »
Hey all you hep cats!

Tomorrow I start my 6th and final bottle of Harvoni. For the most part my journey has been smooth and manageable. So glad these forums are here. I highly recommend all the newbies use them to assist with the anxiety most of us have begginging tx.
Comforting to know you're not alone.

My biggest symptoms has been tinnitus and insomnia. (along with the obvious bad sense of humor....prob can't blame that on the Harvoni though)
The tinnitus kicks in about 45 min after my 1:00 pm dose and is mildest after sleep.
I suspect this will become a SE that will eventually make it's way higher up the Harvoni symptom chain. I'm certain mine is Harvoni related.

However, on the positive, I can certainly feel my liver and overall health improving. The left qudarant pain is mostly gone except for vague dull pain during yoga stretches.
I've cut out all added sugar and salt and gone mostly organic so I suspect it's all related. And of course the daily MUST exercise and lots of wawa.

28 days to go and gonna flip that last bottle upside down and yell BINGO!
Then celebrate with with a six pack! JK.. I warned you about the bad humor..

Best always,

Please forgive me if I get this wrong,as this is the first time I have posted,although I have been around reading postings for ages.

I too have developed tinnitus.I am just starting bottle #3 of 6.I am hoping it goes away once I have finished treatment.It wasn't even something that registered with me until recently when it has been getting worse.

Good luck on your final bottle.The finish line is in sight!
