I am on Victrelis (Boceprevir)

My question is I am at week forty on Hep-C meds and the taste if different to me. Liver area is still in a lot of pain and a big rash on my back on the side of the liver.  I am really puzzled an in pain has anyone had similar problems, oh and just no hungry but like a lot of liquids..

Arlene, no I am not familiar with the pain.  I can definitely relate to the taste thing though.  I am on week 30 of Victrelis and everything tastes wacky and I can't figure out what it is.  I still eat, but it just tastes odd -- kind of vinegar and sugary.  

What has your doctor said about the rash around your liver and the pain?  I would like to know.

Everything does taste different while on treatment. That changes though afterwards then watch out for the weight gain. Since Hep-C or treatment should not cause you any liver pain you should get this checked out.

Best to you from a Victrelis patient that is now SVR
