Talk about,not healthy I was standing in the line at the grocery store tonight and they had an Ententmans (?) donut display near by so I look at the fat in ONE donut. Hello 24 grams of fat. Sounds like breakfast to me.
I'm having a hard time w all these fat grams. Nausea is really getting to me. Loso options are limited. I'm just gagging it down most days. I'll do anything to SVR.
Besides the options listed above, frozen biscuits n milk, sunflower seeds, almonds, certain granola bars, and always a Boost or store brand high fat shake. Thanks for ur input!! Karen :) I'm pretty strict about times. I'll go 30 min trying to choke fat down before I take med some days..
Just started the treatment with Incivek 8/15/11. This is the fourth go round with Interferon. The thing I did not hear from the Dr. was to take the riboviran 2 hrs after the incivek. Is anyone else doing that? It sounds like the right the right way to go.
I too am having difficulty choking down high fat content too early and too late. I am staying within 15 mins of my 8 hour intervals, but this fat is making me gag. Notice, I have no problem with the afternoon dose of "fat". LOL
I am also taking Imodium 2hours before or 2 hours after an incivek dose. This part is killing me.
I am definitely going to try the smoothies
Am I to understand that dosing w/PTI, esp in a.m., should be seperate from riba? I'm scared I'll forget and I have to work around snacking on a schedule in nwhich I am actively in a classroom teaching 12 year olds. I had planned on 5am, 1 pm,5pm,9pm (I go to bed @9). Does this sound feasible. I cannot tell anyone at my work about tx since it is 'rumor central'. Thanks.
How about flax meal? You can add it to smoothies and sprinkle it over cereal.
Rebecca, in the first post, last paragraph, mentioned the 2 hour delay.It gives your body a break AND gives each pill to do it's own thing without competition. Makes sense to me. Give Right now, I'm craming 9 pills, all at once in the AM. I feel like a chipmunk. LOL
I'm taking Interferon about 8pm on Monday. I then get to sleep through the "flu". My doses are 7a,3p and 11p for the incivek. I do OK until about 3p and then it's lights out fort me.
Even though this is the 4th time for me, I am ever go grateful to read what each and every one of you has posted. I was reading somewhere in here that yellow poo was an issue? Oh boy, I can hardly wait.
Thank you all again for the all the valuable information. Together, we can ALL do this!
