There are so many different side effects that you may not be hit with the insomnia stick.

I was thinking about this thread during the night as I lay awake yet again from about 2am to 4am. I had forgotten we were discussing insomnia! For the past few weeks I've been racking my brain about why I'm not sleeping. Hopefully it wears off soon! I'm about 16 weeks post EOT now.

Hi Edge,

Hoping your insomnia resolves soon, mine has improved considerably since I completed treatment. I linked this before but here is Dr Freeman's blog again about it which you and others may find helpful.

Hi everyone
I Want to thank you for this forum as it really helped me when I was diagnosed in April. I was in total shock as I didnt know what hep c was. I was ready to join redemption trials but thankfully in Ireland they had just opened up DAA for everyone. They stopped new people getting approved in August as the budget was used up so I was very lucky I was diagnosed when I was. this forum kept me sane and helped me take a positive outlook on the situation. I am starting week 8 of my 12 weeks and all is going well. Main side effect has been fatigue but thankfully no insomnia or stomach problems. Good luck to all who are starting treatment the time goes by very quickly.

Hi Edge,

Congratulations - that's fantastic news. :woohoo: :woohoo:
Our old friend insomnia and why is it always 2am to 4am?!! I had it for years on and off which was probably due to the virus. Then it ramped up quite a lot with the Ribavirin but I have to say that sleeping is much easier for me post treatment. Hoping it will ease for you too soon.

SVR 24!!

To all on the forum, and especially Dr Freeman and Dr Devsam, thank you for your support and for making this possible.

My only question now is what happens next?? Do I take it that achieving SVR24 is a cure? Do I need to get tested again regularly? Just so relieved that this seems to be over.

Hi Edge, wonderful news!

You are officially cured. If the virus was still present it has had 24 weeks to grow back and during 23 or so of those weeks you have had no useful levels of medication in your system so there has been nothing to stop it.

It has not come back because it is gone... for good.

You can still catch it again, but short of that it is officially over.

Well done and thanks for your faith in us!
