Tamiflu

I am getting impatient and anxious about having this hcv that my old script for tamiflu looks inviting! Wonder how it might be related to the new antivirals not on the market yet....

The viral load Went down at last draw but the alts have gone way up :/  also having lots of tingling and paratheses in hands and feet - staying away from nearly all meds as well as alcohol - WTF? ??

I don't think Tamiflu will have any impact on your HCV.

Viral Loads fluctuate all of the time. It is normal.

The tingling in your hands and feet could be peripheral neuropathy. Hep C can cause peripheral neuropathy. Of course, so can many other things. Plus, the tingling could be due to something else. But you may want to take a look at these articles about extrahepatic manifestations of Hep C:
