Just started Mavyret

  • By imme

    I am new to this site, not new to Hep C! I just started treatment w/ Mavyret. I am on my third day without any problems. I was wondering if any one else has taken this?

    Hi @imme, WELCOME! Thanks for reaching out and I am sorry there hasn’t been a posted response in quite some time. I am glad to hear you are starting your Hep C treatment. How is everything going so far and how are you feeling?

    I thought I would share this article with you about Mavyret-
    But, keep in mind different treatments work differently for everyone. I hope others chime in here. I will reach out to my team too to see if they have had any experience they can share.

    Thanks for being part of our community.

    So very glad you found us. I took the older treatment, but hear that the side effects with mavyret are mild, and also wane within the first 2 weeks. Like Lauren said, everyone is different.
    It’s great that you’re being observant and looking for support and confirmation. If there is anything else we can do, please let us know.
    If you would like to visit the fb forum, you can read a lot of personal stories there also.
    I’m glad you stopped by. Being part of a supportive community was a big key to my successful treatment and I know it will help you too!
    Stay in touch. xo Karen, Moderator

    Hi Imme. Congratulations on starting treatment. I also cleared with one of the older treatments (Viekera Pak). Both Mavyret and Viekira Pak are direct acting antivirals and work in much the same way. The side effect profile I hear the most is headache and fatigue. Mavyret is an exciting treatment because it cures just about everyone and can be used for genotypes 1 through 6.

    We can’t wait to celebrate with you when you are finished. Please keep us in the loop. We want to know how you are doing. We care.
