I can't believe it but I felt like **** today still, diarrhea, not looking forward to Fridays injection and pills, then find out that I am probably supposed to be taking my ribo, daily, not just on Friday night and Saturday morning. I had heard of people finishing tx and having a lot left over, and felt I always told I was telling my dr of my routine. I also went over it with the pharmacist before I started tx. Could I be this ignorant, I guess so. The Accredo Nova pharmacist tried to call my dr and find out exactly the prescribed dosage, of course I am not their only patient.  I am just dumbfounded and 99.99% they're right not me, but how could I continue doing this for over 9 weeks of tx, I do tell them what I do every Friday and Saturday for tx. My viral load is UND, but could the lack of ribo, be effecting the way my sx are going now? I am thinking hell, take the ribo every day, man,  but maybe it will balance out. I don't know whether to feel really stupid, really human, or what!  This is not making me horny, I just laughed, humility aint it great.

wow... i don't know what to say... you have been on a kind of mono therapy, almost... yes, the riba is supposed to be taken twice a day for the whole time of treatment. I'm just wondering if that is why you have these GI problems all the time. The body hasn't gotten used to a constant amount of Riba.... this is just a guess... When did you become UND ? You're geno 1 right?  I think you will be fine, since you are already UND... but you need to start taking your riba twice a day, every day! I'm so glad for you that you are already UND!!!

I knew it, I guess my dr and I figured I was smarter than I looked or acted. What we have here is Lack of Communication.
Thanks, I was UND after 5weeks, Geotype 1a and put at a 90% success rate. If I dare think on my own the taking the ribo twice daily might help my system, rather than shock it every friday night and sat. morning.

Unbelievable headshop!  This has to be one for the record book.  Taking riba like that---no wonder you had tummy troubles.  I am so thankful that your were UND at 5 weeks. Were you taking the regular dose those 2 days, or the full weeks worth?? I bet you will feel better now...funny tho because I have been following you in all your sx!!  Hope things get better for ya now....Isobella

I don't know whether to feel horny or not about it, I, went ahead and started with 2 pills tonight starting the daily deal, without waiting on my dr to get back to me. I guess there is a formula for this treatment and it probably will balance things out with my stomach and other problems. Yea I gotta be grateful for this enlightenment, gotta go with the other location for care I think also.

I know you said your sx sort of follow mine, it'll be interesting to see how it goes now.

Peace and Health

Just let it go. You would probably have been a super rapid lightning responder, if you had taken the Riba how you should... it is great news that you got UND at 5 weeks! A lot of people don't have that result with the proper SOC... I'm rooting for you big time!!!
