Long-time lurker since I was diagnosed earlier this year with acute HCV - I've been so very lucky to have been diagnosed so quickly and started treatment quickly. I've been put on Incivek / Pegasys / Riba triple therapy, just started yesterday. It's been going okay. The first Pegasys shot went better than I thought, until during my sleep - severe chills and a low fever happened. Other than that, I'm surprised that I'm feeling as fine as I am right now. I guess we will see in a few weeks. Fingers crossed.
Anyway, I actually am posting to ask a silly question that I forgot to ask my nurse. The incivek dosing has changed now to 2 times a day, 3 pills each time. So now I'm doing them together with the riba after breakfast or supper, eating >20g of fat each of those meals. Then it just hit me - Do I need to keep eating a high fat lunch as well to keep the absorption of incivek efficient or not? (My guess is no, but I don't wanna take risks as I would really love that SVR so I'd do anything to get it!)
I'd call the "24/7" Incivek support line but they are closed on weekends...guess not so 24/7 huh :(
Thanks to anyone who can answer this question!
And to those also on the triple therapy now, good luck to all of us! Thanks :)
