Are there a lot of side effects with treatment?

  1. When treatment consisted of only interferon and ribavirin there were many serious side effects. With the direct-acting antivirals, the side effects are mild and many patients report no side effects at all. Common side effects with the newest treatments are fatigue and headache. For people who are also taking ribavirin there may be a lowering of hemoglobin which causes anemia.

    1. I personally haven’t had any side effects from taking Epclusa for 3 months post Hep C donor organ transplant in 2019. (Leslie, Community Moderator)
