My girl friend just started on Incivek. Can anyone let me know if there are other communuity forums or blog sites. We are trying understand side effects and diet. We are in day 4 of treatment. Any help would be greatly apprciated.Please help if you can.
This is a good place to start. Also you can go to the Hep C side of this forum
You can do searches for HCV Incivek to find others who are going through the same thing
I will be starting the same tx soon. Besides this site there are the Hep C Nomads and HCV Advocates where you can find information. There are many many both here on the Hep Social Side and the Hep C Forum and you can find all kinds of support
Good luck to your girlfriend and ask any questions you may have
One of the biggest things that I remember from my first tx was that inf can make one very dehydrated and you have to drink a lot of water. Also rest is important and taking the incivek with fat and riba with food. Those are just a couple of things, I am sure others will be along any minute
