Hi all. I have had hep c for twenty years and was told at my last appointment that I was now approved for treatment with viekirax ribavirin and the other tablet (dacta something) sorry I keep forgetting the name! Did anyone else have this treatment and how bad is it with the side effects? I'm worried as I do a very physical job and my iron levels are low anyway, also I'm sort of in Menopause also, so I'm shit tired most of the time anyway. The nurses keep saying most people are fine and it's not hard to stick out the twelve weeks, but it all sounds a little too easy, and I'm not sure if it really is. I was never approved for treatment before so this I my fist attempt. Also does anyone know, when you go to the clinic and they give you a prescription for the tablets, will you need to take that to a pharmacy and pay the prescription charges? Or do they give you the actual tablets at the two weekly appointments? Can't get hold of my nurse at the moment, so if anyone knows it would be very appreciated.
Thanks in advance to anyone that can answer
