Just curious- are you doing SOC (ribavirin and interferon) for 48 weeks and if so, is there a reason why your doctor is not considering triple therapy for you which usually means shorter treatment times?  24 weeks vs. 48 weeks

Potential side effects fall into 3 main classifications:

1. Not so bad
2. A sad Country song
3. Jumanji

   Well hopefully you will be like me and a few others I know. They did not really have side effects (sx) and I am in wk 40 and have none. Good luck Margie. I will let others comment about their sx.
