The first month on these meds are tuff, many side effects to deal with. After you begin to tolerat them. Ribivirian is a very effective Med to help cure Hep C. The side effects are something to deal with, but well worth the risk vesre the reward. No side effect is un tollerable. its not easy and no one will tell you it is, however the possiability of curing Hep C is well worth any side effect i deal with. if the first month is rough, bear it, Adversity defines us in life, it will get better.

I have had a few side effects while taking Copegus the main one being nausea and quite strong, it has never made me physically sick but have been close. The only other side effect i have experienced has been sweating heavily at night, but i dont know another person who has taken the drug to have the same problem with sweating.

I have cirrhosis damage caused by Hep C virus which greatly slows down the absorption of any medications I take orally. This affects the effectiveness of the drug, so other than that I would have rated it 5 stars.
