forgot the third question.
3. Who has relapsed on what product?
Great that you’re done!
I did 2 TX first time(24w) relapsed but was clear on TX and one month post. The second TX 48 week clear on TX and now svr 1 ½ years.
They changed generic brand several time during tx capsule, pill form and colors. I don’t think I ever had the brand name riba at all.
Generic is just as good as the brand name do not worry about it. Generic vs brand name as been talked about for many years no one has found any difference.
On ribavirin label?
skull and crossbones.
During the course of treaments, several different manufacturers both pill and capsules. All are equally crappy.
I'm taking Rebetol (Schering Plough). I'm UND since week 4, maybe earlier. No change of brand/manufacturer during tx. I'm in week 40.
ribavirin 200 mg tb ribasphere blue oval shaped pill
1. I'm on Ribavirin made by TEVA. little peach colored pill 200 mg each. I was UND at wk 4. Now at wk 10 of 24 for GT 2b.
2. No change to Riba product yet. (did change from PegIntron to Pegasys after wk 4 though)
3. Hoping I never have the chance to answer that question.
