2nd day taking Harvoni
« on: August 02, 2016, 04:45:54 pm »
Like most I have waited till this new cure arrived. I was asked several times to participate in trails but refused. I have a sister that did and ended up getting liver transfer, so I was timid on the old treatments. 1st day seemed sorta like in a daze but speeding, stayed busy. I drink a lot of water daily so no big change on that. My second day has been sorta fine. I feel little clearer but have a headache, might be sinus. I had head cold past weekend, weather. I would like to thank everyone for the great info on here.

Headaches seem to be one of the more common side effects of Harvoni...  The suggestion usuallly offered up is lots of water, and Ibuprofen; just dont exceed the recommended dose.
