Hi all
I'm on day 3 of Harvoni treatment and I am just so tired! Is this normal? If I let myself I could literally sleep 14hrs a day. A friend who completed treatment, not Harvoni, said he felt like a fog had lifted from his brain about 2 days in. I feel like I've been wrapped in cotton wool!
Any advice much appreciated.
Thanks

Hi CL,

My experience with generic Harvoni was that I had some headaches during the first 3 weeks and I also do recall having slept a little bit more than I usually do. After the 3 weeks of tx I felt well, with energy, no foggy brain, etc.

My advice would be to use the time and rest enough if you feel you need it, especially if you do not have other side effects to bother you. Also doing some exercises (walking, easy jogging) helps. Also drinking water helps too.

It is great that you started the tx, I wish you an easy trip till EOT and afterwards towards SVR12 :)

Cheers,
RHF

Hi RHF

Thanks for your message. I don't really know what I was expecting, instant energy or something. Ok I will just take it easy and hope it doesn't last long. I've bought a juicer and been filling myself full of healthy things, lots of water too. I feel like I'm putting my obligations and commitments on hold due to such lack of energy to do anything but it isn't for long I'll just have to make my excuses and make it up when its over.
Thanks again for your support, I don't know what I would do without this forum.
Very best wishes.

It is not unusual for patients to be a bit tired during the first few days. The way I explain it when discussing what to expect is that it feels a bit like you feel in the days leading up to getting flu. A bit under the weather, but not too bad. This is usually gone within a week or so.
YMMV
