hi just got the results of my 4 week bloods vl undetected. big thanks to all the peeps at fixhepc and the redemption trials
got another 7 weeks to go but off to good start all lft results normal
side effects wise I had 3 days of major insomnia (suffer from insomnia anyway but this was worse)
3/4 days of mild headache more like sinus than banging headache
to offset these I actually felt more energetic like a mildly excited feeling in spite of getting no sleep for 3 days. this energetic feeling persists ( I doubt ill be running any marathons just yet but I do find myself having to reign myself in for fear of pushing myself too much )
I have a bit of a phobia about taking any tablets even paracetemol or antibiotics so no big shock that there was no way I was gonna do the interferon /ribavirin which was the only treatment option for G2 tx niave in uk
I signed up for red 4, was a bit worried when I received my meds and got PANOVIR when I assumed it would be SOFOSVEL could find very little info on web regards panovir and still don't seem to be able to find much even on here which is the reason I started this thread .I know ive still got a ways to go yet but this medication is working just wanted to share

That's a great result at 4 weeks. The meds all seem to have similar side affects. Like you I also had the insomnia and headaches but more energy as the treatment progressed. Also like you I also used to resist medication of any sort but grew to respect those little DAAs!
Looking forward to your next results.
