    Hi I completed a 12 week course mid last year and I deliberately refused to read the side effects pamphlet because I didn't want to encourage myself to have side effects.

    I did not have any real side effects except a bit of indigestion occasionally but I suffered with that before I started taking Harvoni anyway. If u do get indigestion do not take meds for it close to the time u take Harvoni. I can't remember exactly how many hours either side u can't take it but it's on the pamphlet.

    I am a very sensitive peraon and if there are any side effects to a drug I will get them and I will get the rare effects. If I can take them then I'm sure anyone can take them without side effects. Good luck, they are so worth it. I had liver cancer treatment prior to starting Harvoni and getting rid of that virus was the best thing.

    One of my friend taken harvoni for his HepC treatment. Harvoni contains a combination of Sofosbuvir and ledipasvir. It is an anti virus medication that prevents Hepatitis C virus (HCV) and reduce the virus in your body. As he said like dont have any serious side effects. sometimes he felt very tired and headache after he ate harvoni.

      Yes there are a number of people who regret having taken harvoni. I think it is a new treatment and those who can wait should do just that until things get clearer. I had few side effects in treatment, now I have an autoimmune condition developing.

      Well done and,  if nothing is found, do not stop digging. Once you know what is going on you can start addressing the problem. I hope you find your answers.
