Side effects of epclusa
1 Reply RSS Share
I have been taking epclusa for two weeks. Last night my husband noticed brownish splotches on the mid-section of my back. The skin is not raised nor does it have any similarities to a rash. It looks more like large bruises. I'm not sure if this is from the meds or because I had a heating pad on my back the other evening. Has anyone else had this experience? ## Not all rashes are raised and/or itchy. Some of them are just surface spots like that, and this medication has been known to cause them in some people that take it. However, on your medical provider can say for sure. Have you experienced any other side effects? The FDA lists them as possibly including nausea, dizziness, headache, fatigue, diarrhea, and loss of appetite. Are the spots still there? Are you on any other medicatio... ...

Has anyone taken Epclusa and experienced back and leg pain? I already have 2 herniated discs but it seems that since I started the medicine it has increased my pain and started pain in my legs. ## Joint and muscle aches can be a normal side effect of this medication, according to FDA reports, you may also experience nausea, dizziness, and headache.

I'm hoping my pain is contributed to the epclusa and was wondering how soon after treatment will the pain go away ## No new medicines. Pain in legs started ... ...

Can I get any feedback from someone who's been in a similar situation? I have a very physical job... Am i going to be too sick to work? ## There is really no way anyone can say for sure, since we are all different and may not react the same to any given medication. In most cases, people try to start a new medication, when they have a few days off, that way you can find out how it is going to affect you, before working, driving, or operating heavy machinery. The FDA does warn that it could cause nausea, dizziness, stomach pain, and diarrhea as side effects. Have you started taking it, yet? Can anyone with experience taking it chime in? ## I am also genotype 3 and 30+ years. For the most part I've been ok on Epclusa. (This is the final week) but if I don't drink enough water I... ...
