Ubiquinol/C0Q10 1 cap day - should be OK
Ubiquinol (as Kaneka QH Ubiquinol®) 100 mg
Other ingredients: extra virgin olive oil, gelatin, glycerin, beeswax, purified water, sunflower lecithin, ascorbyl palmitate, caramel color.
I've been taking a few other supplements with ingredients such as milk thistle which I plan on stopping.
What is a reasonable amount of time to wait for undesirable substances to clear before I start the DAA?
I've waited decades, I can wait another week or so before I start if I need to
Anything else I should be doing to help assure a successful treatment?
If you use the search tab on this site you may find the information that you are seeking. For example I entered B12 and found LondonGirl's Post# 20131 A friend had a high spike in their Alt reading and had to be hospitalised, they weren't 100% sure of the cause, but put it down to Spirulina. This friend is a medic in infectious diseases and works at a hospital, so I would agree with Gaj.
I believe VitB12 can help absorption and has been ok'd on treatment along with VitD, so I would be very cautious re anything else.
I agree with LG's suggestion and I myself, only took B12 along with VitD, BP meds with sof/dac and withheld all other supplements. I stopped cholesterol meds 2- 3 weeks before tx. I hope this helps.

Your medication looks fine particularly as your doctor will be monitoring on treatment.
The usual recommendation for supplements is to be cautious and stop using them during the short period of treatment with the possible exception of B12 and D3 if your levels of those are low. I would think stopping a week before treatment would be plenty of time. You will find some further reading on supplements in the below linked section of the site.
