I have gained 22 pounds. I have 29 days left on a 12 week harvoni treatment. My hair is all over the place. Have not dyed hair since beginning harvoni. I am thinking about quitting treatment. I eat vegetarian. Eating habits have not changed. Not as tired as I was in beginning. I'm 56 and weight loss is impossible at this age. If U don't mind getting fat and bald, this is the treatment for you. Yes, I believe I am going to stop. Thanks harvoni.

Successful Epclusa Treatment (3 months) 69 yrs old with compensated cirrhosis. Best I felt in years was 4 weeks into treatment. One month after end of treatment the serious thinning hair, sleep problems and a general unwell feeling began. Just passed the one year mark and the hair loss seems to have slowed but it's easy to see that it will never be what it was. Sleep problems and unwell feeling persist. If I had it to do over I would, it's a damned if you do damned if you don't situation.

I too, took having for hep c. Gained weight rapidly, loos tons of hair. I have no energy, don't sleep normally. I'm 58 it been 4 years since i took that drug. There are many other side effects including pneumonia. Can't list them all. I didn't want to take it to begin with but the Dr. and nurses kept telling me i should be thankful for being able to. I'm furious.
