I HAVE BEEN ON THIS FOR 44 WEEKS NOW. I ALSO TAKE RIBAVIRAN AND WAS ON VICTRILLAS FOR 36 WEEKS. MY VIRAL LOAD AT START WAS 4.5 MILLION AND AFTER 3 WEEKS OF TEATMENT THE VIRUS WAS UNDETECTABLE. WE WILL SEE AFTER 6 MONTHS OFF TREATMENT IF IT IS STILL GONE. THE FIRST COUPLE MONTHS WERE A NIGHTMARE.

Side effects were as described. EXACTLY. I did not clear the virus, but that's not the medicine's fault. Type 1b. Planning to do again when protease inhibitors are released.

Comment:
I discovered I had Hepatitis C genotype 1a Oct. 2007 when my gastroenterologist ordered blood work before gallbladder surgery. She suggested I have the treatment especially since my viral load was fairly low (300,000). I spoke to 2 other physicians (one a relative) and they both encouraged me to have the treatment.
