Do this meds affect the flora of intestine? Do they kill the good bacteria? Can we take probiotics while on treatment?

Hi Enkel I used to use probiotics to help digestion when I was sick with the virus. Bowels were just terrible due I think to autoimmune dysfunction via vagus nerve and brain, not exactly sure of the mechanism. I seemed to be intolerant of several foods. I stopped taking the probiotics as my gut came good 3 days into sof/dac. bowels have been great since then and I am gaining weight. I doubt the meds are detrimental to gut flora. Now I can eat all the foods I used to be intolerant of when sick with virus.
3 years cured, Sof/Dac, thanks Doc Freeman, hepc only a distant memory, go for it ppl

Oops, just reread your signature Enkel - your ALT is down to 17, not VL. Well, that's still good news!

Blood sample for viral load taken at two weeks too, but it needs one week to take the result

Do these meds affect the flora of intestine?

No.

Do they kill the good bacteria?

No, they don't kill any bacteria.

Can we take probiotics while on treatment?

Yes.
YMMV

ALT and AST values ​​close to both of us. The same upper limit to ALT.
It's hard to wait so long! But at least we have good results at LFT.
I believe that we will succeed! :)
