    I was forced to stop treatment in the 9th week. In one week I went from no rash to high fever, rash covering my entire body, shortness of breath, just generally feeling very bad. I'm due for a one year check in June 2013. So far all testing has come back virus undetectable. If this continues the 3 month recovery from Incivek will have all been worth it.
