tx and flu
Good morning

Need to know if the powerfull antiviral medication we all take during this tx, has any efect on any other viruses, not just Hep C virus?

For ex, during tx, are we better protected against flu virus?

Thank you

I'm not sure if Ribavarin affects flu virus but my Hep doctor insisted that I get the flu and pneumonia vaccines before starting tx.

Hi,  I wish I could give you good news here, as I had hoped the same thing. I found out differently over Christmas, when I caught the flu.....not fun.....TX and flu are not a good combo.
So the best advice I could relay is eat healthy, avoid sick people, and drink LOTS of water.
