    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.
