Is there a way to get Sovaldi without being subjected to a U/A? Patient had PTSD and has taken cannabis sativa for 35 years. ## @Geshela, It seems to me like your best bet would be to check with several different doctor's offices in your area and ask them what their protocols and/or patient requirements are when it comes to prescribing a medication like Sovaldi. My guess is that every doctor will have to their own set of rules and morals that they adhere to, while others may be more flexible or lenient with their patients, depending on the circumstances. And if you don't live in a State that allows the consumption of medical cannabis, this might feel like a big road block, but I will say that in some cases I have been surprised by the leniency of certain doctors and what they...

I did well all the way thru my treatement until now when I'm just done. I'm having clear bright colorful dreams while I'm wide awake, I'm seeing sparkles of bright vibrant colors when I close my eyes and my thoughts are actual images I can see in my mind, I can literally see what I'm thinking. I have this constant smell that won't go away, my ears are ringing, my head feels like it's about to explode, I'm cramping in my abdomen, legs and back, my stomach is hurting so bad. Called my doctor, said to get to hospital, WTF is going on, am I dying ? ## If you just finished treatment. Your not going through withdrawals. Your Dr. said to get to the hospital, get to the hospital! I am not a nurse, but with the smells and the visions you may be suffering some sort...

can you take lithium while taking sovaldi and ribavirin ## Hello, Polly! How are you? I didn't find any interactions or problems listed between these medications, but it's best to double check this information to be sure. Lithium is most commonly used to treat the manic episodes of manic depression. Its typical side effects may include poor memory, dry skin, dizziness and nausea. The Sovaldi and Ribavirin may cause side effects, such as nausea, dizziness, headache, headache and fatigue. Is there anything else I can help with? ## yes. I normally do not have a manic episode unless I stop taking lithium. This time as soon as I started taking hep c tx. I started w the same symptoms of mania. That is scary stuff
