I am in 3rd week of my Epclusa treatment and only small symptoms nothing major except insomnia. Very difficult to go to sleep. I started smoking marijuana at night which helps me out alot to go to sleep. My question is if is it ok for me to smoke Marijuana during treatment. Does Marijuana interfere with Epclusa and my final result to achieve SVR. Thanks.

Hello Mike,

Relax, the evidence says smoking marijuana or drinking alcohol during treatment will not reduce the treatment success rate.

Sadly about 1 in 5 patients get some insomnia. Here's my quick tips on how to deal with insomnia

Weed's not listed in the medication options but, hey, it's natural and if it's working for you...
YMMV
