The new Hepatitis C medication. I haven't gotten a straight answer to this day. Can you answer these 3 questions or any 1 of them.

1. What is it called?

2. Do you have to use it in combination with interferon in order for it to work; or can it work without interferon?

3. How do the doctors decide if the patient can tolerate it?

Connie-Bristol-Mayers is still in clinicals with a new medication that will cure Hep C in a week..

I was in the first trial, had one of the highest viral loads EVER (25 years infected).

I took a couple pills twice a day for a month.

The viral load was COMPLETELY GONE in 7days.

It has yet to go to the FDA. It WILL get a rush and it is anticipated to hit the market in 1-2 years.
I TOOK NO INTERFERON OR OTHER DRUGS.

Do you have other questions?

Sorry, late giving a reply. I have a high viral load, also c.o.p.d (just found out). I'm a 64 yr old baby boomer. How is new treatment going? How high was your viral load? Thanks. Hope your well.
