Anyone have experience with starting new treatment?

Suppose to start Epclusa next week I’m 65yrs old, not sick prob had since 70s side effects worry me as I have COPD. Also, would having flu vaccine spike my viral load numbers? thanks

    Hi Davoe, I would not worry about side effects due to your COPD. The flu vaccine should not spike your viral load. Viral load is like blood pressure, it changes from hour to hour. Moat patients due very well with Epclusa. Give it a try and stay calm. (Sue,Community Moderator)
