Have you heard of Vosevi? It is newer Gilead drug after Harvoni. Starting soon...

Yea, I got approved for Vosevi.  After going through resistance testing, seeing Hepatologist an hour and a half away.., I have been approved for new drug by Gilead (came out after Harvoni).  My doctor didn't want me to go the Harvoni route. I did ask about it. Since i am non-cirrhotic and have resistance issues, and I am a treatment failure patient.., all these things made me be a good candidate for Vosevi.  NO RIBAVIRIN. and NO INTERFERON.  Very glad about that. 3 drugs in one pill, once a day for 12 weeks. Anyhow, there are some sides listed on there, but I won't know whether I will even be affected by them or not.  They list the usual.., headache, nausea, diarrhea, insomnia,  fatigue, type of sides that are they same sides I've ever heard about when using Peg or Riba.., so I think I will deal with whatever if any sides crop up.  Vosevi contains sofosbuvir  (which I had in the Sovaldi/Peg/Riba treatment on my last TX about 2-3 yrs ago), a Prot. Inh and a Poly Inh     I will actually had the meds in hand next week, but am waiting until after Thanksgiving to start it.  I have to meet with my GI (who is following me local) and sign a form, before I actually start the regimen.

I have heard of Vosevi heard good things in general. Yup similar sides as Harvoni. Most suggest to keep properly hydrated on treatment seems to help with headaches.

Best of luck on treatment.
