Hey sheriff, welcome. I heard importing generic HepC drugs to Canada is a huge problem unless you get in the clinical trial. It's an fda approved clinical trial, Redemption 3 (etrial). You gotta have your own doctor to do the blood work etc. On page 5 in the bottom link is a fellow Canuck for you to hit up, he offers info to fellow Canadians. good luck!!
G1a dx'd in 1992, Biopsy F2 VL 8mill +. Tried tx with Interferon/Riba, back in 2008 didn't last long it felt horribly ugly!! I stopped tx, after 5 weeks!!
Started tx 6/1/16 with Harvoni.

Many Canadians have benefitted by getting access to the medications from the FixHepC REDEMPTION trial.

Sheriff, go with Monkmed. Dr. Freeman will provide the prescription for the medication. You will want blood tests anyway. If your doctor refuses involvement, find a new doctor and just get VL and Liver function tests and don't tell them about the generic meds. Just tell them you want to monitor your condition. That way they are not implicated in something perhaps illegal to them, and you get what you want and need.

I can recommend the Redemption trials and the FixHepC / MonkMed system. I am clear at end of treatment and am waiting for my 12 week testing to occur. I used GP2U for my prescription which worked very well. MonkMed and their people are very supportive and will not let you down. I wrote a procedure about getting the Meds into Canada to help others out. If you PM me I will send it to you however I do not check this site every day.
The meds are getting into Canada and it is legal. You are not alone with the FixHepcC and the MonkMed people. If you want to get meds and get cured now - I say Go for it.

Hey Sheriff! Happy to see you found this place. I'm in the US, Pacific NW and can confirm what you're being told here since I too have gone the Redemtion trials route. I'm a little over 3 weeks since EOT, (end of treatment) and will be doing my 4 week test soon. It was easier than writing the appeals to my insurance provider, I can guarantee that! and that you won't regret going this same route. My best to you n' yours,
