Hi Dk

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.

Good luck
Lynn

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.

Yes, there are people on Sovaldi and Riba, Geno 2's for 12 weeks, Geno 3 for 24 weeks,  less side effects and time than the old treatment of 48 weeks.

People with Geno 1 or 4 have to take Sovaldi, Interferon and Riba but only for 12 weeks.  Again, much better than 48 weeks.

That is much better than the Incivek, Peg and Riba for 48 weeks.
I guess it is all in your perception.

Thanks for pointing it out, I guess I did not read the subject, just the question.
Have you answered his question?
