Epclusa aftermath

Beginning January I completed 3 months of Epclusa, n now am every day dealing with foot,ankle and lower leg swelling. What has happened, am adjusting my diet to minimize effects of that n nausea; it was into the third month that these conditions began to settle in! so far there has been no knowledgeable feed back, like the specialist are only guessing; this is very disconcerting to me. ## I don't know if you know about the lawyers in Texas helping people on harvoni, but epclusa has half of the same medicine in it. They told me to get more people to call. Their name is George Fleming 1-713-621-7944. I took it a year and a half ago and I'm still messed up with my nervous system. Please call them!!!! This may be our only chance. Spread the word to more epclusa patients. ## Hi been ...
