It sure is! Feels like the FixHepC bandwagon is on a roll to health and new beginnings :)

Thank you Beaches for your post. It is so great to read that people get so much better after few days on tx. I am about to order the meds once I get my lab work results and a medical prescription for Generic Harvoni. Where did you get your meds from? Australia or India? And what brand? For some reason I like the name HepcvirL :-). Anyway best of luck to you until you reach 12 and 24 pos tx cure. #love

Hi Meg,
Thanks for your comment and good wishes
I am on the Greediad branded (i.e. not generic) Harvoni. I was all set to go down the generic path but when I told the doc at RPA in Sydney they said don't do that we will put you on the branded stuff as soon as it comes onto the PBS (Pharmaceutical Benefits Scheme in case you are not in Australia)
I don't know the GP2U process but I'd guess if you got your meds through them you would be guided by their recommendations.
Go for it you will never look back :+1: #flower

Hi Meg,
There are a lot of good options. Sometimes the country in which you live makes the choice easier. Sometimes the price, but not so much difference in that regard all things considered. A prescription and someone to monitor your tx is also a factor.
You are in the right place!
Good luck!

Times flown Beaches!
I inboxed you so check its been sitting there waiting to let you know when I am heading up your way. I'm catching up with another generics friend in Sydney too and would love to meet if you have time. It's refreshing to read your posts about the pioneering work that Dr James, Greg Jeffreys and many activists have done which yes I agree put pressure on the Aust Govt. I find it interesting to read your PBS story too, I haven't seen much PBS action at my huge Liver Clinic yet and my GP is interested in generics for private patients of his, it's very sloooooow down here getting the PBS!
I have finished tx as you know however I wanted to say my generic is Gileads own branding. I also have another course of tx from Mesochem here which was rejected by my liver clinic (because they lacked education) so that's going free from me to a deserving Vietnam Vet when we can sort it, again with the assistance of the team here. It's a great feeling being able to donate! All the same drug just the result of paranoia at my clinic I had to buy twice haha!
Yeah my generic was Gilead! Isn't it nuts that they just pump the price up despite owning the Indian labs
All the FixHepC meds are the bomb! Tested, monitored etc. For Meg, if you read this and cannot get PBS meds contact the team at FHC yes and do what I did buy them because they work
Beaches enjoy the week ahead and good luck as you swim toward EOT and check your pms please missy mermaid xxx you're going super well on tx xxx
Love from Ariel

Hey Beaches #flower
Thanks for your update. I loved reading that you are going well, extremely well actually. :+1: For me It was huge turnaround from experiencing symptoms of HCV and yet in some way not really knowing and understanding the seriousness of the situation then finding myself feeling a kind of hopeful wellbeing after Tx. My medicos were full of b.s. also - just couldn't trust them & as a consequence I felt I had nowhere to go. Like you I applaud Doc James & Greg Jeffery's efforts; where would we be without them! There are incredible success stories here and I love reading them. #love

Thanks Pat
I should probably also say that although it has been all sunshine, rainbows and happy dolphins for me I don't know if that's the same for everyone. I'm fortunate to have minimal liver scarring and I believe this is a big factor in the speed and effectiveness of the treatment.
