I take them with my first meal of the day, usually around 11-12. Sides are nausea, insomnia and headache although I have headaches without the two pills. I just got my 4 week results back as UND so at least I know what I am doing is working. Good luck with starting treatment. You will start to feel better before you know it.
Been on these meds about 7 wks now. No real problem with sides. Minor joint aches first couple of weeks, slt nausea first couple days, some increased gas but that's about it. Take meds following breakfast which is usually cereal/banana. Best of luck to you. May we both reach SVR.
Can you tell me, please, how you were able to get a prescription for both Sovaldi and Olysio, and most importantly how you got coverage for them?
On my 9th day of Sovaldi and Olysi and as far as side effects-nothing,nada,zilch! I have not experienced anything at all.Still have my taste buds,my sense of humor,been going to the gym so no lack of energy.No problems at work,not even a headache-just take them with food and stay hydrated for smooth sailing-this sure beats the heck out of all the poison we had to endure before this-don't miss that anemia at all.
Good Luck Glen
Hi Jen, hope this goes well for you. I just started my treatment two days ago. Have headaches, insomnia and a bit more joint pain. You may not even experience this. Being different individuals, the side effects will also differ. I pray for you, and all with this pernicious disease that we reach SVR. Be Thankful for every morning.
I'm getting my box tomorrow too. I can't wait to start. From everyone's replies and what I've read, it is way better than the 48 weeks of interferon/ribavirin I did 3 yrs ago.
