The benefit will probably take awhile before you notice, and it is usually small and gradual. Probably another week you will notice it, and then it will keep improving, especially since you are almost done. May take another month after your last ribavirin before really starting to feel like old self.

It took about a week for me to feel back to normal-ish after reducing my riba dosage from 5 horrid blue pills a day to 2 horrid blue pills a day. Reducing the dosage by 3 tabs made all the difference in the world. I felt human again.
