Hi Baily. I am sorry to hear of your troubles. I don't think that the new treatments are causing psycho/emotional problems like interferon does. So while you may not be stable enough for the old treatments, you can probably safely take the new treatments without interferon. In fact, sovaldi has been approved for genotype 1 patients who are interferon intolerant and that just may be you because of your bipolar diagnosis. Also, the other trial drugs should be approved for interferon free treatments later in 2014. With a stage 2-3, you do have time to wait for those treatments to become available. I wish you the best of luck.
Thank you so much susie ,you have been a great help to me,my pschriatrist is a real jerk and i can; change him becuase i am poor monatarily, but my physician gives me my pysch meds thank god, I have ptsd and the pysch wouldnt give me my meds for it....hes a real idiot....anyway Thanks agian.
