Vitamins during treatment 3 years 5 months ago #27803

I was told by my nurse that I shouldn’t take any vitamins while on mayvret. Is this true?
I’m vegetarian, and need B12 at least.
Anyone else taking supplements during treatment?

Hi Hopeful, it's totally fine to take vitamin B12 during treatment, here is a long post by Dr James Freeman, FixHepC's founder, and he mentions at the beginning that vitamins B12 and D (for instance) won't impact treatment in any way fixhepc.com/forum/drug-interactions/2107-supplements.html#27584

Welcome to the forum Hopeful425,

You're right that continuing B12 is important for a vegetarian and you definitely should continue this.

The problem with "one size fits all" information is that it does not.

What supplements are you taking at the moment and what are the reasons/expected benefits? Also what other medications do you take (if any).
YMMV

I was taking a multi- vitamin given by my nutritiinalist, hydroxozine for sleep, and nitro as needed for angina

I was told I could continue the hydroxozine, but the nurse was unsure of the vitamins.
I eat very healthy, but fine that I really lack in b 12,

Is a complex B okay?

B12 is fine to take with Mavyret. So are hydroxizine and nitrates. Here is the interaction checker:

And here is the report
