How long can side effects last?
Incivek, Peg, Riba----My daughter was UND at 4 & 12 weeks. She will be tested again Oct. 8, then 6 months later. Is there a thread on here or a website that can tell us how long the meds stay in the body ? She is looking forward to feeling better. Thank so much.

Has she finished treatment ?
Normally after treatment people begin to feel better after they stop the meds.
My hepatologist said most people feel the side effects are all gone by 3 months post treatment.

What she can do to help feel better is continue to drink water, exercise, eat well and be patient.

Hello she will start to feel better, it does take a while however she will start to feel a little better every day.

From what I was told it takes about 3 months for the Inf to slowly leave the body and it is 6 months for the riba

I could tell a difference just a few weeks after finishing however it did take some time.  I am now 7 months post and I feel so good now.  I am happy that I treated.  I am sure other will join in soon

Good luck
Dee

I started to feel better fairly quickly, not 100% but anything is btter than how I felt on treatment. It does take some time; I heard the same thing that Dee posted, actually from a pegasyst nurse. Good luck to your daughter.
