Has anyone heard if you have had a liver transplant not to take this medicine? My brother had a liver transplant in Dec. 2011. They wanted to wait a year before treating the Hep C. He was doing great up until August of 2012 and then he started getting sick again. We are just waiting for him to be approved for the meds but I guess I really want to know is if anyone has heard of the drug not being approved for someone who has had a liver transplant. To all of you going through this pray you get through this and keep up your fight!

Hi kelly,

According to, those with an organ transplant should use caution before taking Incivek:

However I haven't come across any interactions in my research that might explain 'why' this is a problem for those with an organ transplant...That said, it may be a good idea to discuss this with his doctor before moving forward with treatment.

I hope this helps!

Just curious the rash everyone keeps talking about how long have you been taking the medicine before the rash appears?
