“Day 8 and side effects have been minimal, slight headaches, nausea when I don't eat and acid reflux, but I am also off my Protonics.  Sometimes I feel like I have all the energy in the world other times I don't know how I am going to make it through the work day.  I listen to my body and rest when I feel like I hit a brick wall, trying to drink as much water as I can.”
Tutu’s “Re: Starting Harvoni!!”

“For me, I have trouble with 'frontal brain' tasks like learning new things -- and that makes it very hard at my job where I'm supposed to be innovative. It's like there's cotton in my head and I just can't think clearly at times...thoughts are moving slowly and memory is diminished. Sometimes my vision even gets blurry during these times.”
