This morning I had the first ride of the season with my tri team and was immediately dropped. I can really feel the dehydrating side effect of Epclusa.
1970's-Bad behavior as a teenager.

Hydration is the key isn’t it! I recall feeling like a camel whilst on Harvoni. Don’t know the sx of Epclusa but sounds similar. Are you getting the dehydration headache too no matter how well you live? I did. It went away after week four-ish. I kept my sport up during DAAs better than having a crash with the happy hormones from sport I figured. No competing but I did some pretty heavy stuff especially during the last part of tx. I found long walks very helpful and I have friends here who did same.
I’m sure you’re going to be back on yer bike and fangin it better than ever when done with the virus the meds and all. They clear out of the body very quickly I think.
Sad to hear of a disappointment but props too for getting out there amongst it I say!
Looking forward to hearing your next updates
