It is quite common for blood levels to get worse while on treatment, a sign the meds are working. If you want to be cured from Hep C then staying on treatment is the best thing to do. You don't mention what blood levels are of a concern. But there are drugs out there to boost levels. From what you said above you were not a eRVR which makes it all more important you continue............. Best to you.
i agree with above my hubby viral load was only 11.000 at start he was UND at wk4 and continued to stay UND throughout his 24wk of tx his blood went very low over here in Britain we dont have procit so he was given folic acid to help and keep him on tx. Please continue it is the best way forward
the blood boosters were too risky also- my count went down to 20 and is hovering about 25- i think the bleeding risks are greater than the viral return risks. liver enzymes are good
Welcome to the forum.
It would help us to respond better if you would give us more information.
What Genotype are you?
What is your fibrosis stage? Are you Cirrhotic?
Which drug regimen are you on? (Interferon and Ribavirin or were you on triple med. treatment, Interferon, Riba, and a Protease Inhibitor.)
You said you cleared the virus (became Undetectable) at 2.5 months. That is not early clearance.
How long have you treated now, how many weeks have you been on treatment?
Which blood counts are low? Hemoglobin? Absolute Neutrophils? Platelets? And how low is each one of them?
Have you tried an y of the rescue drugs (Procrit, Neupogen, Promacta)?
If you give us more information we can better help you. Otherwise we are shooting in the dark.
I will say though that you did NOT clear the virus early, and that being Undetectable for only 3 months is not very long. If there is any way to stay on treatment, it would be bnest to stay on treatment. Again, with more information, maybe we can give you more informed responses.
Opps, sorry, just noticed you did say you were on triple therapy so you are Genotype 1. Did you take Incivek or Victrelis?
