The people who can answer your question are probably offline. Weekends are slow.
From their posts, some people do get the sx later but you may be one of the lucky ones and end up with mild sx.
Fingers crossed for you on that.
My sx for me started about 3 wks after. I started Nov 15th and it started after thanksgiving when I started to get sick. But everyone is different and you may be lucky and they will be mild. I hope and pray for the best for you.
I started my 4th week on Friday and it was the third day of my third week (remember it so clearly :-) that it seemed like everything went wrong. I had a rash but it wasn't bothering me until that fateful day. Woke up, rash burning like crazy, as the day went on ears hurt, too tired to think, gagging on water, eyes looking like slits, etc. etc. etc. Well after sleeping 11 hours that night I woke up feeling good again. Same symptoms but able to deal with them. Over this weekend Iall prior symptoms have moved over for anxiety and have been drinking chamomile tea to calm me until I can get prescription.
As far as I can tell and from what I have read there doesn't seem to be a rhyme or reason to these drugs or who is going to be impacted by what. Just take the good days as good days and I really hope that all your days will be good.
i took my first interferon shot about 2 hours ago, and took my incivek at 6am, 2pm, and 10pm along with my 2 doses of ribvirin. feeling fine all day, just a little itchy but nothing yet! still only my first day of treatment, lets see how the week goes.. GOODLUCK!
This is cute. So much is written about how horrible the side effects for Incivek that there isn't a balance. It seems when treatment is smooth sailing with no problems people tend to post less. I am glad you are doing OK. Just know it is best to not let the grisly side effects snowball if you ever get them. It is better to nip them in the bud (is there an award for using the most clichés in a post)...
I am feeling the same way as you. It has me wondering if I am just in a honeymoon phase with more to come. I started a probiotic prior to treatment. It kept me regular. We have been shooting for higher fat gram count of 30 for maximum saturation. It's working fine...so far. Keep in touch.
