Do side-effects dissapate after 12 weeks..

Tiredness, achiness... thoughts? With the new drugs (Zovaldi+) at 100% cure, less side-effects and shorter treatment. I am unsure if I am willing to sacrifice another year of my life. ## Hello, Bluehowz! How are you doing? What I think you should do is set up an appointment with your doctor, discuss your concerns and the side effects you've been experiencing, ask them about the other treatment options and the possible side effects, then you can make a fully informed decision on the matter and do what's best for you. Is there anything else I can help with?

NaturalNews has an excellent article (linked below) on alternative therapy that works without having to experience such nasty side effects: naturalnews.com/032061_bioflavonoids_hepatitis_C.html I hope this helps!

Victrelis capsules

How large are the capsules? I cannot swallow large pills or capsules. Thank you ## The size of these capsules actually appear to be smaller than the average size. They are also noted to be "hard capsules", which may correlate to how dense the shell is. Linked below on the company's webpage, you can view a photo of what they refer to as the actual size of the pill: victrelis.com/boceprevir/victrelis/consumer/victrelis-dosage.jsp I hope this helps!
