hi renee, thank you for posting about starting sofo (sp). i just got the call on thursday that i'm also being considered for a trail for that med. i'm hoping to follow your post and your follow mine and that we can be a source of support for each other.
I was concerned I didn't get in the Arm that got the Ribavirin. After reading your iron problem and remembering my anemia from Riba back during tx 2007, I understand why this trial includes it. Riba is a harsh drug, if we don't need it fabulous, if we do then it's worth the side effect to reach SVR. All you and I want is SVR while glad we can help others for future treatment success.
I was trying to read data from your profile. What ARM did you get on the GSI-7985 trial. With Ribavirin right? I'm in the same study and am trying to track others progress. My Clinic always refer to GSI-7985 which is the combo. This forum doesn't seem to do that yet. My pill is light orange with GSI on one side and 7985 on the other. UKgirl55 pill is blue with same markings. Post some journals so your progress can be quickly followed. Everything happening to us is so important and hope for others. Good luck and stay well.
