Hey Woody,

The dreaded diarrhea can be a common complaint with Epclusa. It is often transient and not something you can expect throughout treatment. Itís a powerful combination of drugs and can have the occasional negative effect on our system. Donít let this worry you though, just treat it symptomatically. If you need to add something to stop it, just be sure you check with your doctor first. Try bulking up with some oatmeal or rice in your diet. Glue it together! You should also watch what youíre eating and limit the spicy foods or anything that might cause it anyway.
