If it is just one large chai tea per day, then I can't see what the harm would be - so, I tried to google up what ingredients (really) comprize chai teas, and (of course) there are SO many variations! Healthy (most are thought) some not so healthy (if they use lots of commercially convenient chemical based things to create them). But the individual natural ingredients they list in a lot of the chai teas (from spices to coconut milks, etc.), do not sound harmful, rather they exclaim about the anti-oxidant and anti-inflammatory properties these teas supposedly boast! And less caffeine than coffee.

There is no easy way to answer whether a simple chai tea could interact with your drugs, I think not. But if you were worried then just simply separate the drug away from the tea by hours. I would think that no matter how "powerful" the anti-inflammatory effects of a simple chai tea might brag of, I could'nt imagine how many you would have to consume to be reflected in your ALT!

Just thinking out loud, as I couldn't give a firm answer, except, for that I think chances are that chai teas would not interfere with anything. 

YOU ARE amazing - with these "days" - 3 days on Mav! biggrin and 16 days with out a cig! biggrin Yay! C. Good on the water - water helps everything. wink

Day three and doing GREAT!!! No side effects as of yet.

Been drinking a gallon of water, but today might end up being (almost) a gallon.

Tomorrow is my first day back to work. I'm working part time Sats thru Tues.

Gonna be different and more difficult to eat full meals at 930am on the way to work. Been cooking a full breakfast my last three days off. But this is the most consistent time for me to eat everyday.

Can we drink Chai Tea while on Mav? I don't drink coffee but do get my Chai every morn on the way to work. Just wondering. I know I posted this question somewheres else but cant find what thread.

16 days I have not smoked a cigg and kind of freaking out over that, in a good way I guess.  eeeekkkkkkkk....


Have a great weekend all.....It's my Monday.

Hey Zig, 

How goes it today! All good I hope. Good on you for the water consumption efforts! mm chia tea! smile

Another link for you: https://www.fibrometer.com/images/fibrometer/Interpr%C3%A9tation_FicheResultat_Virus_ENG.pdf

I am glad you stated today that you think you did NOT have a fibroscan, that has been something I have been wondering about ever since you first posted your F2 status, I was trying to ascertain whether you HAD had a fibroscan, way back in a March 22 post, where I was asking IF your F2 was deduced by blood test OR fibroscan, but then, when you posted your labs a couple days ago I could at least see that you DID have named a "FibroMeter" test - so, that's good to know now, that you did NOT additionally have a fibroscan. That answers my curiosity. If you are not familiar with fibroscans, they are easy to do.

I had been guessing that you have probably been looking around and reading threads on the site here - especially all of the other Mav-takers threads here, but that's great that you know about the search button - it's a handy tool alright.

Glad you clarified it will be an 8 week course - I did note you mentioned that length of course, a couple times, but did not know for sure whether your doc might have left it open to possibly change it up to 12 weeks, or not. SOT Apr 11 makes your EOT Jun 6 - so, nice and short and sweet your Mav will be! biggrin 

What dates did you get booked for your first, and ongoing on-treatment blood draws? C.

Oh what a lovely mornin'! A nice new "spring" day to start your Mav. smile Good choice!, if you decided to take your Mav with breakfast, if (as you said) breakfast is your most convenient, consistant, reliable, repeatable time of day to take your dose! Everyone is dif, we had one  lady say she prefered to take it in the evening, there are thousands of folk out there who are taking Mav, and everyone should just choose their best time of day to take it, based on what suits them, AND in being able to continue taking it at the same time every day with a meal - so you have chosen wisely

I chose my time of day dosing (just like you) based on the priority of same reliable time every day with a meal, that just happened to be lunch, as breakfast and suppers we very unreliable for me. 

Hey nice you have a few days off, celebrate your day one! - take a little walk out in the fresh air, have a bubble bath, catch up on some good book or movie you have been wanting to - treat/reward and soothe yourself, for all your hard work getting here, to this good day! 

So, IS it 8 weeks for sure, or 12?

Cheers. wink C.

Good Morning,

I have the next three days off from work.  Getting ready to make my breakfast of the day and take my first three MAVYRET pills of this first new ride journey of my first Hep C treatment ever.  Drinking my ice water already.

This was not the way I wanted to do my spring fever.  lol

I'll keep you all posted.
