Strangely, my instincts told me not to consider this treatment. Seems rather a jumbled mix of quite a few meds to me which must be a strain on the liver. The irony is, there is a warning of 'severe liver damage' with this treatment. Call me ignorant, but aren't these treatments supposed to be trying to prevent that very thing as part of the intention?

There seems to be a 'Goldrush' effect taking place amongst Big Pharma at the moment on HepC meds. :ohmy:

Most drugs are metabolised by the liver. Even something as routine as Paracetamol/Acetaminophen can be liver toxic - while 2 x 500 mg four times a day is safe, if you take all 20 at once there is a good chance you get liver failure.

So as a rule of thumb many medications are liver toxic at high doses - in effect the liver can not process them fast enough and toxic products build up. A number of promising drugs across many areas have failed in Phase 2/3 trials when patient have got liver failure from them.
YMMV
