Immune system
Am on faldaprevir, ribavirin, BI 207127, am I more likely to pick up colds and other illnesses than before treatment because of a lowered immune system? How can I protect myself against these things? Or am I less likely to catch things?

Thanks

Also, do treatment side effects get easier over time?

hi not to sure with the faldaprevir ,my hubby on wk20 with 4wk to go he on triple tx using teleprevir,but yes it does weaken your immune system and was told by hep doc to make sure you eat well, plenty of fresh food and fresh food, i know it is hard when appetite goes but try to eat little but often also because hubby is nearly 62 he was advised to have the flu jab also try to get some fresh air and exercise each day that will boost your system. Hubby did find it got easier after a few wks but at moment he suffering extreme weight loss and fatigue but hanging in there I wish you all the best with tx abd please let us know how you are faring fresh fruit(sorry)
