So Far, So Good

Two hours into therapy, no major side effects to document on Sovaldi itself. I had eaten a small granola bar upon taking the pill to help with absorption and possible upset stomach. Tonight I will take the other pill Ribavirin, which I'm expected to have very mild reactions to (if any) based on my 2006 treatment of the same pill. The astounding thing about this new therapy is the removal of Interferon, a weekly injected drug that reeks havoc and is extremely toxic on the body. So far, so good!

Sovaldi is making headlines across America, and here is just one news clip from Newsy.com in which they give a great review of the new drug.
