I received my meds yesterday. I bottle Sofosburvir I bottle of Daclastavir. However, there were 84 capsules in each bottle.
I was expecting 90 capsules'. On the prescription my Dr. wrote 90 caps and same on the order form.
I'm just wondering if 84 is the correct dosage or do I need 90 for the whole course?

90 is written on both my bottles but I didn't count until today (day 25) and 90 it was.
I was planning to stop at day 84 anyway (if I'm clear) and then ... give the rest away?

This was my error. Before I knew more I knew less. Mesochem supplied in a standard quantity of 36 g (90 x 400 mg) so I made the incorrect assumption that it was 90 days treatment, rather than 84. To be totally compliant with the guidelines we now use 84 days.
If it was me I would reserve the extra 6 to resume treatment in the (unlikely) event of recurrence. That will minimise any delay while further medication is shipped to you.
Over treating for 6 days should not cause any harm, but given the recent Gecko data the 8 weeks works well for most people we are probably overtreating by quite a bit with the 84 day course.
The trouble is we can only ever know we under treated....
