I've completed 12 weeks of generic harvoni from India and still getting quite severe dyspnea. I'm on medication for it but doesn't seem to be working. Any ideas?

Hi Meri,

Are you on antibiotics ? Is this caused by a chest infection?

No chest infection or antibiotics and I'm not a smoker. Clinical Nurse I see said 30% have this side effect..yet I haven't heard anyone comment about it. I'm on a beta blocker for it but it's not helping now. See my GP in morning. Bit worried about it.

I was told chest infection is quite common and had one myself mid SofoLed tx - Had to take antibiotics.

Definitely worth getting checked out.

How long ago was your EOT? Hope things improve for you soon.

Meri, do you have a history of heart problems or kidney problems?

When you see your doctor remind him that Harvoni can cause heart problems in rare cases.
