I'm suppose to have already started the viekira pk. I received it 2 weeks ago. I'm geno 1 with cirrhosis. So I'm suppose to do 24 weeks. I'm scared. After reading some comments, I'm more scared. I know I need it but I'm also diabetic and have to take prilosec....which I'm now taken off of. Please. ..some advice?

I just started my viekira pak and ribavarin THIS morning! It took me almost 2 years of denials, appeals, grievances, patient support programs, nurse connectors, and endless doctor appointments, paperwork, phone calls, court dates (for appeals) and I was finally approved for vouchers thru the company!! I think its sad that in order for medicare to approve it, you have to be near death practically, but persistence paid off. Don't give up if you get denied. It takes a while but be patient!
