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.

No it's pretty common like the eye lashes growing like crazy it's one of the best parts about tx of any type ;)

Yea, my fingernails are thick and hard now, I guess they will go back to brittle after tx, :(

What are some other GOOD side effects besides SVR?

I thought the eyelashes was the BEST because I've always wanted them big time like on tv - boy I miss them hitting my glasses big time!   hahahahah it's true!

The only "good" side effect is SVR.

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