My post doesn't say that, it is merely a question of how one calculates the effectiveness difference between branded and generics as in successes and failures. There is not one program that states the effectiveness or ineffectiveness of generics. Please, I ask don't read into anything negative that I say, I am 100% pro generics and if I was a betting man I would bet on them as it has a SVR rate of over 90% when all is said and done.
Thx Beaches.

I am taking Hepcinat LP, I have had no real side effects but a small few at first. Does anyone else take this brand if so what are your results?
Thanks.

Fara - hey all is good. I cannot complain as I feel frign incredible for the first time in decades !
GP2U trials are awesome they got great medication & if something goes wrong they will be on board to help us get retreated ! I have total faith in this incredible doctor and his plight toward changing the world as we know it. One in 1 million I say......one in 1 million.
Stay positive my friend it's going to fly.
In good health to you.

First real noticeable side effect: my attitude for some reason went from loving life to a spiral downward real quick. I caught myself and got a big answer from a fixhepc member and yes this is a side effect. I'm feeling better but my wife thinks I was headed south, I was and it was weird. Thanks Fitz you were spot on!
In good health to you my friends.

Hi Sven, it can be a bit of a rollercoaster at times. Just remember there are plenty of changes happening physically and emotionally too. You've got lots of friends here so hang in, you'll be reaching EOT before you know it. :+1: :cheer:

Can't speak for others, but from my perspective and experience you are right on schedule Sven :)

When the emotional stuff arises as it did for me in the first weeks, its helpful to keep in mind that DAAs are powerful stuff, and this is all part of the experience of becoming well.

Never hurts to step back a bit, and give oneself (and others) a bit of space when one feels the unexpected emotions bubbling to the surface. Easier said than done, I know.

Remember that you can always PM me and others here when it gets a bit much. I will send you a PM now with my email address so that we can stay in contact when not logged in here.

You're doing great, brother. Just keep putting one foot in front of the other!

I have decided to back off from posting on the forum for a while, who knows how long.
I must say I need to think positive about my treatment success rather than talking and thinking relapse when I'm not even five weeks in!
As I read these posts about being relapsing when people have not yet relapsed it creeps negative thoughts into my mind and I can't allow that. Right now I just have to protect my own psyche.
I wish all of you well I will be reading from time to time, I'll check in after my four week labs come back, my eight weeks and then 12 weeks.
In good health to you all and I wish SVR for everybody on this site and everybody whom is in treatment.

4 week results are in: UNDETECTED!!! :)
All my liver functions are in the normal range.

The doctor is on vacation so I went to the office today and since he hasn't signed the report she could not give me a copy but showed me and explained everything. .To say I am thrilled is an understatement, I mean UNDETECTED for the first time in 30 years and in 4 weeks Ill take that!. I also want to thank everybody here for all their support and know I hope everybody will achieve the UND and SVR 12 & 24.
The hard copy will be here shortly and then Ill post that as well as send GP2U.com the hard copy results as well.
In good health to all.
