"I was totally shocked when my doctor said that I had to start hepatitis C treatment NOW. What he is recommending is Sovaldi and Ribivarin (no interferon). Does anyone know of a study on this combo for a 1b, and what the SVR is? Does it sound like a good idea? I'm also wondering about Off-label Sovaldi and Olysio (as long as I'm dreaming)."
