THINGS TO WATCH OUT FOR
Although you should not underestimate the harshness of the treatment , as it will be at least 6 months long and with the use of strong drugs , we advise you to listen more to your doctor and pay less attention to other people.
Be very careful with any information that you find on the internet. The reason for this is that it tends to give the impression that EVERYBODY who takes the medicines suffers from problems. This gives a false impression. People who have had problems express themselves publicly, whereas those who did not suffer any of these effects generally don´t speak out.
You would get the impression from this picture that the average of patients who had problems taking the medicines is much higher than those who had no problems. This is NOT TRUE. It’s quite the opposite!
It is necessary to point out that 85 % to 90 % of people who start the course of treatment with the two medicines continue right up until the last week indicated. If it were really as bad as all that would so many people really be able to carry on for as long?
Take it easy, take this step calmly. Pay attention to the technical analysis. Listen to your doctor.
CAUTION WITH THE USE OF DRUGS IN GENERAL
HEP C patients should not take medicines without first making sure that they do not attack the liver. There are drugs that are notoriously enemies of the liver.
WHAT I CAN OR CAN NOT EAT AND DRINK?
The consensus among doctors is that you can eat and drink everything. The only exception, of course, is alcohol, which should be avoided at all costs!
We recommend that you avoid excessive consumption of the following:
1 – Fatty foods;
2 – Fried food;
3 – Red meat;
4 – Candies.
