Welcome jammers,

Its great that you are getting rid of the hep. As the others said... water water water and of course listen to your body and if you have to...take it easy..

As for whens best to take it? Its really really important that you take it at the same time of day from start to finish so you will have to decide what works best for the compliance aspect of treatment.  As for the side effects affecting your ability to work... well.. we each are different - some have zero sides - some get tired..as long as you drink water you can usually stave off headache... 

let us know when you start

We are still wondering what time of day is best to take the Mavyret. Morning. Bedtime. Food?

Hey Jamie,

Welcome to the club! You’re starting one of the most successful protocols known to man or beast. I can tell you that I know of no one that has failed this treatment. It’s that good!

As far as side effects, they are minimal, if any. Do your part and hydrate like a thirsty Camel, eat properly and get the rest you need, not what you’re used to. Try and get 7-8 hours of good sleep while you’re going through this. The first couple of weeks may impart some weird feelings, that’s normal, but they shouldn’t be anything you can’t handle at home or work. There might be so muscle aches and pains, but extra water should relieve those quickly. Water is the magic elixir!

We have a lot of info here on Mavyret, as well as personal stories from your fellow Warriors. Spend a minute or two and read this monograph on Mav, it will give you some professional insight into the drug action. MAVYRET

If you have any questions, don’t hesitate to ask. I know you’ll do great!

Thank you Guru I always tell my doctors the best way to find out how treatment is going to go or a surgery is to hear it from people who have gone through it. I spent a long time helping manage Colon cancer forums so the messages and information people got in there was invaluable and many times saved their lives.

Welcome, Jammers.  Unfortunately, I don't know enough about Mavyret in particular to answer your question, but I'm sure someone will get back to you on this. I do know that the new meds for hepC are wildly successful and with far less side effects than earlier medications. 

It's great that your viral load is low and that your liver has put up with this.  Getting rid of the virus is a really smart move. You don't need the virus replicating unchecked.

One thing you will hear from all of us here is that you need to drink loads of water. Yep - a gallon a day. It really helps to reduce any side effects and keeps your system flushed.  It's hard to get used to drink that much, but it's worth it. Dehydration is a big no-no.

I wish you the best on your journey and I am happy you are taking it. Be sure to let us know how it's going.  We learn a lot from each other.

Best to you,

Cheddy

hello

I have had hepc for a very long time. Since my military service.

I am told my liver is surprisingly in great shape with a viral load of 400,000.

I have agreed to start mavyret on 2 march.

My main concern, needing to keep working a schedule of 0800-1300, what is the best time to take this so that one might experience the side effects less at work, if that is even possible?

This looks like a great place to be and give and get support.

 

Thank you in advance

jammers
