Hi there. Good luck with your treatment. I did the other PI, boceprevir. I was able to work full time and always on my feet. My biggest problems were dehydration and low hemoglobin. My doctor gave me procrit to boost my hemoglobin.
People here have needed meds for skin rashes, anal issues and sleep problems to name a few. Underneath the headline hep c community there is a box: search this community. You can find discussions on particular subjects here. There are lists of RX's one might need for side effects and OTC stuff too.
Make sure you get copies of your blood tests so you know your blood counts and can discuss these with your doctor.
Best to ya,
C

Good advice C. Many of us worked during tx. Since summer is coming up, consider the weather. Heat can make the rash worse, but your 12 weeks may be gone by the time hot weather settles in.
A lot of it was an endurance game. Survival instincts take over and you just get up and go. Rescue drugs like procrit help.
Congratulations at a 2nd chance of slaying the dragon! Incivik is a tough drug. It worked for me.
