Unfortunately, many people do experience lingering effects for several months after completing their course of treatment with Harvoni, as reported by the FDA. Sometimes, the symptoms also include joint pain and muscle aches.

Has there been any change, yet?

Can anyone else that's taken Harvoni chime in?

I am at about 9 weeks post treatment. I have had lingering GI issues, fatigue, muscle and joint aches!
Will these symptoms ever go away? The joint and muscle pain is horrid. I react to Tylenol and ibuprophen in a terrible way, I am taking a narcotic for the pain and wonder if I will feel this way for the rest of my life.

The diahhrea did eventually cease. My lingering post-Harvoni symptoms now are low-level headaches (especially in late afternoon and nighttime) as well as fatigue. I drink more water and get as much sleep and rest as possible. By the way, my administering MD did not EVER respond to my questions regarding post-Harvoni symptoms!

I'm almost 18 months post treatment and I still feel lousy. Ever-increasing neuropathic pain in face, hands and feet as well as unbelievable fatigue and brain fog. Have developed sensitivity to both Motrin and Tylenol. I quit drinking years ago to protect my liver but now use it to control the pain. Healthcare provider doesn't seem to care. No referral to any kind of specialist. On a 3 year waiting list for a spot at the nearest pain clinic. Frankly, I felt way better when I had Hep C than I do now. Sure, I'm glad to not have it anymore but had I known I would feel this bad for this long, I'd have refused treatment. I've given up all hope for a cure for the cure.
