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. ...

Epclusa Treatment

Is there anyone out there who has taken Epclusa? I'm fixing to start treatment and would like some feedback. ## When you are starting treatment? Can anyone that's been on this medication chime in? The FDA lists the typical side effects as possibly including headache, diarrhea, discouragement, loss of appetite, and nausea. ## I finished 3 months in Jan; side effects began to like stick to me by the beginning of the 3rd month; swelling for me n nausea, felt a little addicted too; that could have been the habit of taking it at 11am daily. Yet something just isnt right for me n there is no info from the professionals! I'm doing research as much as I can and making adjustments... ## I am currently 12 weeks into a 24 week epclusa treatment. It’s been really difficult due to ... ...

Side effects of epclusa

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... ...

Hvc treatment

Is it worth doing epclusa? I'm supposed to start next week. I'm 65 yrs old, diagnosed with copd recently and have shortness of breath, always tired & afraid that treatment will make me feel worse. I'm fibroscan f1, geno 3 V L 8mg. I'm very worried. I probably got infected in the 70s and don't feel real bad from hvc yet, just normal old age feelings I think. Any advice is greatly appreciated. ## Hi Lou, Sorry to hear about the symptoms you've been experiencing. Although I've never taken Epclusa myself, I did want to share a link to other related discussion threads here on MedsChat where you may be able to get a better idea of how others have responded to treatment at: [1] medschat.com/search/epclusa Please note that all medications carry some level of risk... ...

Starting treatment soon for genotype 3 hepatitis C - have had it for 30 years

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... ...
