evening forum,

please take note of my experience so far:

1) i am a recovering drug addict, heroin. clean now over 12 years. a fellow member told about the Hep C Trust here in london

2) i spoke to their helpline and they referred me to fixhepc. i registered and started reading all posts. i had lots of doubts on the bona fide of people. regardless of this i followed their advices (in the process gor some nasty messages from some indian producers/suppliers)

3) i knew my london doctor would have never written me a DAA script and therefore I booked an appointment with monkmed. before it i got hold of my blood results, viral load and all info needed. my doctor very helpful as well

4) had a phone appointment with doctor debasis. extremely nice man, poilite and professional. monkmed has a great little website where i booked date and paid online. they even sent me reminder of the appointment. all very well done

5) i spoke to tim several times, over the web. always ready to answer my queries

6) i got the money requested to buy three bottles of HEPCVIR L and made a bank transfer

7) this morning at 8am Fed Ex delivered my three bottles, an indian driver, which I took as a good omen

8) i took my first pill and went to train at the gym

tim and dr debasis wrote to me and tried calling me but line was very bad. hey were both enquiring about meds reception.

so far, and it is very early days, i couldn't be happier with the service i have received.

i am worried about the side effects and I hope i will be able to make it through. i have a tendency to make mountains out of mole hills so i am positive.

thank you again to all of you.
Rere S.

Good for you! Sounds like you are in very good hands with MonkMed. They are a very reputable and trustworthy seller. I wouldn't worry too much about any side effects as most patients feel minimal sides. You're on generic Harvoni which is every bit effective as the real deal. These DAA's work differently than other drugs because their main focus is to stop and therefore kill the replication of that nasty ass HepC viral load we all been living with for all these years. You'll be fine. You may have a little bit of a headache every now and then and maybe a little bit of vision blurriness but it ain't nothing. Trust me, don't plan on feeling too much cause you shouldn't unless you're hyper sensitive. good luck!!

Hey Simone, you are in the right place. Similar story as you ex drug injector I have no health insurance (American) living in Asia. I just finished my fourth week of generic Sof/led and all liver functions have returned to normal. My reactions to the Meds have been fatigue and occasional headache. Just push through those times and they fade. Wish you all the best and see you on the other side. #flower #flower #flower

Hi Enrico

I’m glad to hear that you have started your treatment. Thanks for honestly sharing your decision process.

I remember how sceptical you were … coming on the forum frequently asking a lot of questions … it must have seemed too good to be true to you … strangers on the other side of the world offering to deliver relatively inexpensive HCV DAAs to your door.

I hope that the abstract in the Journal of Hepatology, of Dr Freeman’s 2016 EASL presentation, that I posted helped to convince you that this is a legitimate HCV forum with bona fide generic cure paths.

For any other “guests” reading this and still remaining sceptical, as Enrico once was, you can read the above here:


I look forward to following your HCV treatment Enrico and celebrate with you when you reach SVR12.
