Ribavirin

I was just wondering how long some of you took the ribavirin after your last shot. I'm going to call the Dr. On Monday and ask. But I'm just a little anxious, my last shot is Mon. night. Thank you!

You would take it Monday and then the following 6 days.

So you should take it the same day as your shot (Monday) and then for another 6 days after Monday to finish out that week (Tue., Wed., Thur., Fri., Sat., Sun.) Your last day will be the Sunday following your last shot. That would give you the full set of weeks, either 24 or 48 weeks, depending on which set you are doing.

Take them, like you did before, until they are gone.  I was a day short, no telling where i screwed up, but take them all. You dont want to lax on the last week since you have gone this far.

I agree with the others especially since your treatment start date was 03 December.
(Since you were on shot 7 in this post)

Based on that it will be exactly 24 weeks (or 168 days)

From and including: Monday, December 3, 2012
To and including: Sunday, May 19, 2013

It is 168 days from the start date to the end date, end date included

Or 5 months, 17 days including the end date
Alternative time units
168 days can be converted to one of these units:

    14,515,200 seconds
    241,920 minutes
    4032 hours
    24 weeks

Congratulations mzkity, you're coming down the home stretch. I did what Pooh said and that's what my NP told me to do. 24 shots, and 24 full weeks of riba. I like your analysis Idyllic.
