I am on my 47 day of taking harvoni. Done with the first bottle and I am almost done with the second one. Only have about a week of pills left for the second bottle to finish. So I am almost on my third which is my last bottle. Over all I feel good. Before the treatment I felt tired but now I don't feel like that anymore. I have more energy and I feel strong. But as far as negative side effects I feel at times that I can get dehydrated really easily ,either because of the harvoni and or suboxone. I am also prescribe suboxone. That is why I drink lots of water. But every once in a while I have gotten headaches, so that is why I drink more water. So the only 2 negative side effects, which I did not feel before I started on harvoni are headaches once in a while, and more vulnerability to dehydration. Overall the positive side effects have over weighted the negative side effects. I haven't felt this good in a decade. I feel that my liver is working better. I am also hep c viral load undetectable. So I know that the harvoni is working.

Hello Cherr1985,

Glad to hear you have more energy. That’s pretty common. Headaches are in the list of known side effects. The dehydration one is not, but it’s real which is why most people who’ve taken it suggest keeping well hydrated.

Over 1/2 way now!

Hi Cherr1985,

Thanks for posting an update. It's good to hear that things are going well and you are starting to feel the benefits of the treatment which will continue long after the medication stops. I also experienced headaches and I found that drinking more water than usual was really important.

Keep taking every single one of those pills Cherr1985. Not so long to go now.

Hi Cherr1985, your story reminds me of my experience with generics, a few headaches and some insomnia, think I drank a lot of water and the headaches subsided, I'm some 4 years cured now, my VL(in the millions) was typically ugly from memory, but that's all it is now a distant memory, generic Sof/Dac for 6 weeks I think, when i got the UD from Doc I was like WTF your kidding me, it was that easy, can't thank Doc enough and everyone else at FixhepC, so thanks for reminding me Cherr1985, our experience is a wonderful gift we can share, just to spread the word as you have done . I hung on my monthly bloods for six months, then a year passed still UD, then 2 years, now its just a memory, good luck with it, these new generics sound amazing.
3 years cured, Sof/Dac, thanks Doc Freeman, hepc only a distant memory, go for it ppl

Hi Jimmy6429,

Great to hear from you! Thanks for checking in.

I know it's true but it's hard to believe we've been doing this for going on 5 years and patients are getting to SVR208 and beyond.

I reckon at 4 years we can definitely ditch the "Sustained Virological Response" and call it cured.

#woohoo!

I am finally in my last days of my 12 week treatment of harvoni. I only have 2 pills left. I would have had 3 but I accidentally took 2 doses with in that 24 hour time frame the day before yesterday. Does anyone one know if that can be a problem? if I forgot that I did take my dose, I thought that I didn't and later on on that same day I took the second dose. I wast thinking that I misses my first dose for that day when I didn't. So I ended up taking 2 doses with in that 24 hours . The doses were hours almost apart from each other. I only did this once throughout the course of my entire treatment and I never skiped a dose either. Always took one dose every 24 hours. Never skipped. Only this one time where I overdosed within 24 hours. As far as symptoms I do feel very good. I am feeling very well physically. Haven't felt this good in years. On my first month of taking harvoni I was already undetectable.

Hello Cherr1985,

Don't worry - taking 2 doses on the same day is not a toxic overdose and 83 days of total treatment will be just fine.

Best Regards

James

Today I took my last pill. I finished the 12 weeks of harvoni treatment. I do feel very good physically. I am a bit nervous about the next viral load test but I have to do it. I am aware that I must do a viral load test 12 weeks after my last pill. I kind of want to do a viral load test before that. Like do a test a few weeks after my last pill. I am not sure if doing that can give me an inaccurate result. But I am kind of anxious in waiting 12 weeks. I have never heard of anyone who did a viral load test before the 12 weeks after the end treatment.

Hi Cherr 1985,

That last waiting is hard :+1:
All the waiting is hard come to think of it... for meds, for tests.
What you could do, I have heard of a lot of people do to ease their minds in this 12 weeks wait, is have a liver function test at about 7-8 weeks.
That is cheap and fast and the drugs are out of your system by then so your liver is doing it's own thing with no help from harvoni. LFT will show how it is doing and should reassure you. No doubt a very few people need to retreat but it is pretty close to 100.1 not to be you.
Congrats on reaching end of treatment #flower

Thanks. I will do that instead, before the 12 week viral load test.
