How many people have been on this medication? I'm afraid it's to new and they don't fully understand all the side effects

Hello, Shelley! How are you?

This medication actually has one of the highest cure rates and its most common side effects include nausea, fatigue, headache and irritability.

And yes, there is always a risk of that, but that is true of any medication on the market, not just this one.

Is there anything else I can help with?

I had hcv for 15 years and it only took half a pill for 8 weeks to clear virus.solvaldi actually stopped my chronic vomiting and nausea the first night I took it.I was supposed to take ribovarin in morning and at night and six hundred milligram at night but could not tolerate all that .I reduced to 300mg of solvaldi only at night and it worked.without Dr's approval.if u r having too many side effects ur probably taking to much but it also matters how high ur viral load is mine was only 250000.
