I should explain I am a 58 yr. old male with hepatitis c... geno type 1a.... biopsy in 2004 revealed stage 2 level 2. I am told I am now somewhere between late stage 2 and level 3. My earlier post received many helpful replies. I request info about triple therapy and prostatitis as I also suffer from prostatitis.... also depression and anziety which are being controlled daily with flomax and ativan respectively. I am disabled with severe back pain....... recently weaned myself off of methadone 20mg daily for pain. I still take 25mg to 30 mg oxycodone for pain control. 1.5 mg daily for anziety. Most days I am not out of the house.... others I do not get out of bed. I have tried antidepressants such as lexipro... Busprin.... effexor...zoloft and wellbutrin with no success. They made me feel sicker. I could not tolerate them. Felt like I had been poisoned. 7 years ago I was on paxil...... I tolerated that and I am supposed to try paxil again... was to start 3 weeks ago but honestly I am apprehensive as I feel I am just now stabilizing after zoloft and busporin 6 weeks ago. Hepatologist says she won't treat me without anti-depressant first. Actually it seems I tolerate all of my meds less now a days. Once I get my mind around it I will try Paxil soon. I must take triple therapy in Febuary. Got to get my mind around that as well. As you can probably see, I suffer from insomnia as well. I know this is a mouthfull. For the receptive ear.... I thank-you. I respect that there are others with heavier loads. Somehow I feel better writing it all out to this forum. Advise if you can and know that I greatly apprciate it.
In my above speech lol, I mistyped.... I seek info regarding triple therapy and pancreatitis. Thanx.
