    Hi Meaghan,

    I just found this website and these forums and thought I would make contact on several to see if any are currently/recently active and interactive.

    I have genotype 2B, found out in October and started on Epclusa at the beginning of
    December. It is the medication of choice I have been told for Genotype 2. My one month labs showed a marked drop in Liver Functions and nonreactive after 30 days of taking the medication. 🙂

    Thanks,
    Jan

    Hi Jan,

    I just wanted to touch base with you. I also was a December- February treater in 2014. It just occurred to me that you are finished treatment and I’d love to know how you are you doing!!
    Look forward to hearing from you.

    All best,
    Randy
