Is anyone having SX that are NOT listed by the drug manufacturers?
I was just wondering with everyone new on board this triple therapy, RIBA, PEG/INTER, INC...  is anyone experiencing side effects from these drugs that are not listed by the drug manufacturers?

probably not, the reason they tested these drugs for YEARS (since I joined in 2005 they were talking about vx-950 which is telapravir/incevek) so you'd think they'd have them all down pat by now when they received FDA approval.

I don't know if I would consider this is a side effect but before starting treatment my finger nails were kinda slow growing and always very brittle, the first 3 weeks of treating they stopped growing completely, but since then they have started growing like crazy and are really healthy and pliable now. I know it sounds crazy and I'm not sure what to make of it but it is happening.

The only "good" side effect is SVR.

I think SVR is the desired effect, not a side effect
