pre-treatment

I'm very impatient, imagine when I started my tx in January. (RIBA and Peginterferon) I am taking the AD (citalopram) now to contain the effects, and homeopathy. I hope that deliver results... will it be effective?

I believe in an earlier post you said you would be starting Riba and Peg in January, 2012, to treat Hep C Genotype 3, correct?  I don't know about the homeopathy part.  I recommend that you talk to a doctor about any herbs or supplements that you might be taking as some may be contraindicated with your treatment.  However, the Riba and Peg will hopefully be effective in clearing your Hep C, Geno 3, and the Citalopram will hopefully be effective in helping with any anxiety or depression you might be experiencing now or may experience once you begin treatment.  Best wishes.

Ok! His words are encouraging !! I hope it works. Lately I've been thinking a lot about it. I will make a holiday trip this December, before the tx ... the heat is intense in Brazil from now on and I want to be willing to go to the beach or at least swim in the pool... (will I get ? ) hopefully  !

Relax and enjoy the holidays and try not to over think the trt coming up.  The anticipation can sometimes be the worst part.  Once you begin trt with Inf/Riba, do try to avoid the sun, heat, hot showers and sweating, since these will aggravate the itching and rash issues.
