Hep C Treatment & Esomeprezole

Hi, I'm new to this site, I'm hoping that I'll be able to pick someones brains for some advise from actual sufferers as opposed to doctors, I have Hep C, 1, I was about to embark on the 12 week treatment plan, following a liver transplant last year (February), I have just been informed that I cant have the treatment as my esomeprazole tablets that I take for a throat stricture, will counteract the treatment, has anyone on here encountered this issue, have you found a replacement drug for the Esomeprezole? I am in a catch 22 situation, I need the treatment as my new liver is showing signs of cirrhosis, but if I stop taking the Esomeprezole my throat will close and I wont be able to take any pills/food/fluid ... any advise/experience will be appreciated, feel very lonely at the moment and baffled with doctor speak ..

Do not despair, my epilepsy left me untreatable the harvoni etc just had me fitting. Sooooo.... fought and found a treatment that interacted less, omm...ezoles are many, is there any team that deal with the throat? They can and should help on this. Also I fought through the fits and did not tell anyone and I cleared. Point is get a decent gastro to REALLY think at how to get you thru, I mean I suffered like a dog for 6 months of fits did only a third of the drugs but I cleared and am fighting fit 12 years later. if you in uk call me 0800 206 1899 on the helpline. hardest thing is the isolation/

I got an upper GI character who changed my anti acids and stunted my throat for the length of time the treatment took it worked!!

I have not had treatment yet but I am going to see I am going to have similar problem with the carbamazepine I currently take. You may find this Liverpool University web page about drug interactions useful hep-druginteractions.org/ch...
