Go the 24 weeks. The insomnia will pass as you progress into tx. Good luck.and enjoy the ride. I took a bet each way and did 18 weeks sof/dac. However i was only f2/3. Dont risk it, hit it hard. Em
Geno 1b F2/3 snce early 80s. Treated in 2008_9 for 63 weeks on INF/Riba. Commence Sof/Dac on 6 October 2015 and completed 18 weeks of tx. UND at 4-6 weeks, UND at EOT, SVR 2, SVR 6 and SVR 12 on 6 May 2016.
I have completed my treatment and am just waiting on my SVR12 blood test to be done in four weeks. Undetected so far!!
I also had insomnia most of the way through treatment but my general energy levels were so much better. I did get used to the insomnia and it didn't trouble me too much at all.
You are in very good hands. All the best for your treatment.
