I was diagnosed with hepc about a week ago

Posted , 5 users are following.

I am 31 years old and based out of Bangalore, India. I have been diagnosed with Hepc a week ago. My ALT was 171, my AST 122 and my fibroscan is 12kpa with a viral load of 6.9 logs. I don't drink alcohol often but use marijuana, I am also overweight and have been trying to lose weight for 2 years and not being able to lose weight and edema in my foot was what prompted me to get the test done. 

My doctor here in Bangalore prescribed a generic version of Epculsa fir 24 weeks even before the genome type was out and that kind of scares me. I am also experiencing itchy skin, fatigue and decreased appetite for the last 3 days (ever since I started epculsa) 

Considering that marijuana is still not legal in India and what we get is a street drug, do you think consuming or smoking it would have adverse effects?
