Which treatment are you asking about side effects are different between each one?
The thing I am more afraid of are the consequences of not treating and hopefully getting rid of hep C. I have known I have hep c for 24 years and now have cirrhosis. I treated before but nothing worked. So I am very excited to be taking the new meds. I am taking Sovaldi / Olysio. At week four I was tested and the virus and it was undetectable.
I feel the same before I started on the meds as while taking them no sides for me.
I would say just go for it whatever it is and with any luck you can put this thing in the past so you can move into a much brighter future.
im also 3a cirhosis just finished 48 weeks of riba and interferon personally i didnt think it was all that bad sides but i suppose everyone is dif i was undetected 3 month just waiting for post treatment results on wed only once i was sick and that was first jab of interferon had to crawl into my bed rash on my face annoying more than anything but nearer end of treatmen tired and lethargic still a bit like that now but b positive n try not to change your routine get up early if u can have a bath or shower n get out and about i wish you the best im sure you will succeed Geo
Hi flyinlyn is right, it depends on which treatment you are asking about. The newer meds have less side effects for most along with a shorter period of time but it depends on which geno type you have. If you can share geno type you could get more specific help. Dee
