Don't forget to drink 3-4 liters of water EVERY - DAY!! That helps control the side effects too. It's so important! smile

the Harvoni is pretty harsh on me; I have no idea why but I've been so incredibly nauseated, extreme fatigue, very intense crying jags, no appetite-which has resulted in a 15 pound weight loss, etc.....

Once I switched to late evening the side effects are pretty minimal. But don't go by me--I always react strangely to meds.

Hey Gabbie-

Hoping to start Epclusa next week.  Why did you opt to take your pill at night?  Just curious.  Haven't decided when to take mine.

WOOHOO!!! 9/25 is my daughter's birthday. What a perfect day for a celebration! I'm happy to know you're feeling better. That should make this last month a bit easier. Time to start polishing your dancing boots. You need them shiny for the coming Dragon stomping party we're going to have. smile

Happy-Happy 2 U

I can hardly believe it but yea I'm 8 weeks in and have my last bottle sitting here ready. I'll take my last pill September 25 biggrin

The last couple of weeks have been much better because I'm now taking the pill late evening. I should have done so from the beginning and would definitely advise others to do so.
