Feels great not to have to remember to take the pill everyday. Had blood work on Friday. Still undetected! I am not a very good writer but just wanted to give an update. And to anyone who is contemplating going this route for treatment, it was the easiest thing ever! My insurance company sent me in circles for a year and with a such a large deductible, I decided to cut my loses and order from here. Best decision I have made in a long time. :+1: :+1: :+1:

That's really great Redhead, congratulations and onto SVR. It's remarkably easy to get rid of Hepatitis C now, if only more patients are like you and decide to take matters into their own hands instead of waiting on insurance companies who will very rarely spend 100,000 USD on a patient. Hopefully posts like yours will help show them how to get their life back.

Congratulations on your good news. I know what you mean - getting treated with generic medication was also one of my best decisions.
