Finally, after three years I am starting Harvoni tomorrow. It has been a rough road with lots of speed bumps.

I saw a hematologist this past week and my Gastro, who is treating the Hep C. I am being monitored by the hematologist for my platelets, white and red blood cell counts. My platelets are 58,000. He will be doing labs once a week.

When I spoke with my gastro for pre-treatment consultation, I told him I had been practicing the past week drinking lots of water but I was having severe cramps in my legs at night while sleeping. He stated I had flushed my electrolytes. I take prescribed potassium and a magnesium supplement. He stated to drink a normal amount of water while on the Harvoni. I have read that you drink a lot of water on the interferon and Solvadi. I did buy some Pedia-Lite. I don't know what to do or who to listen to concerning the Harvoni and the correct amount of water to consume.

Can anyone give me a link concerning this dilemna?

On a personal note, my common sense tells me if you get dehydrated, this can cause a headache. At the same time, I don't want to flush my electrolytes which can be dangerous.

I am nervous but ready to rid my body of this insidious disease.
Thanks

Mitzi, Good morning!

As always, follow your doctor's recommendation with treatment.

I have not seen anything regarding Harvoni and the need for increased water. Each treatment is unique. This one is quite new.

With interferon/ribavirin, increased water was recommended to my husband, themister, both times he treated. Riba sides, we were told, were the reason for the increased water.

With this new treatment, I have not seen the water increase recommendation. You are one of the early treating folks on our forum.

I am posting the US FDA patient info sheet. Please check in an let us know any side effects or issues during treatment so others can learn from you. I am so happy you will soon be Hep C free. Big Hugs

Hello! Just finished week 2 of Harvoni and the side effects have diminished to almost nothing. I work full time and have not had to miss. Had some fatigue, chills and a few tiny headaches here and there initially. I do hydrate often and I think it helps, both with sides and to flush this nasty virus from my body. I agree you should check with your doc on this, as some people can flush out too much sodium from their bodies with excess H2O, which results in a whole new problem I believe is called hyponatremia (sp?). I also think Americans in general drink too much pop, coffee and other stuff rather than good old water. I always believe in the middle-ground (moderation) on most things. Blessings your way.

Thanks y'all, and you are so right, David. It has been a long battle getting here. I am going to try and keep an on going journal for those who come after me. I have had some anxiety over starting this medication. My platelets are low, at 58,000. I was told that platelets don't decrease with Harvoni but we will see. After all, the drug is new and everyone seems to have a different experience.

I took my first dose today at 4:00p.m. I had my BFF on the phone with me for the first two hours in the event I had an allergic reaction to the medicine itself. I have had numerous drug allergies in the past and just wanted to play it safe.

I have a good support system with my best friend and immediate family. I will try and post something every day.

Is there a way for the administrator to change my subject line to treatment on Harvoni? If I have to start a new one, can you let me know?

I find a lot of comfort knowing all of you are a click away....

Thanks themiz! You are quick on your feet.

I wanted to post what I found out concerning taking Prilosec or Nexium. Normally, I take 40mg and have switched back and forth through the years. I addressed this with my Gastro Dr and the pharmacist that dispensed the Harvoni. You have to decrease the dosage to 20mg a day. I was told I could take it with the Harvoni as long as it is 20mg. The over the counter Nexium is 23mg and is okay to take.

I made the decision to take my chronic medications in the morning. I am taking the Harvoni at 4 pm every day. This will work for me because I am not going to sleep just taking the Harvoni; if I have a headache, hopefully it will be gone by bedtime along with any possible insomnia.

For the water issue, I am going to drink one 28 oz bottle of water with one third Pedialite. Then additional water if I am thirsty or have a headache. This should cover me with enough electrolytes. I will let you know how it works.

Thanks for the info on Harvoni. I am printing it now so I have it on hand.
To be continued...

You'll save a ton of money if you use omeprazole, the generic version of Nexium/Prilosec. My docs prescribed 20 mg. and it works just fine.

Thanks, ppm guy. I addressed that today. I had the prilosec changed to the 20mg. The Nexium dioes work much better though. The bottom line is my insurance pays for the Prilosec, not the Nexium.

Day two on Harvoni has gone well. I dose every day at 4pm. The only change was my pulse rate. I take my blood pressure two or three times a day. My pulse is at 92. Spoke with my cardiologist today and was advised to contact them immediately if it hits 100 or higher. Blood pressure is good.

An ongoing problem I have been having is severe cramps in my legs at night. I am taking prescribed potassium, with magnesium, and zinc supplements. I am on HCTZ, twice a day. I am staying well hydrated. I did read that one of the symptoms of cirrhosis is severe leg cramps. There could be several causes for this so I am tracking it to discuss with my doctor on next visit.

Will continue to post throughout duration. Taking one day at a time with a positive attitude.

Hi Mitzi. I hope you are feeling well.
I am taking Harvoni and this is my third treatment for HCV.
You should have received a packet with your first bottle of Harvoni that explains what you need to talk to your doctor about as far as other medications you may be taking
about water. Most people go through life dehydrated. They don't understand that a person needs 1/2 ounce of water per pound of body weight. So for a man that is 6' 2" (74 inches) tall and weighs a healthy 180 to 200 lbs., he should drink about 90 - 100 ounces of water. If he exercises regularly then he should drink 3/4 ounce per pound.
His urine should be almost clear in the toilet bowl and only darken after meals.
Don't just start horsing down water. Gradually build up to the recommended amount.
Don't count the pounds of body weight over the recommended body weight for your height. Exercise, eat healthy fresh food (no processed food) and loose the extra weight if you can.
I recommend the best selling book Body for Life by Bill Philips if you would like a nice primer on taking care of your body.
Good luck, Mitzi!

Okay, it's been awhile. I have had some issues and just couldn't post. I started Harvoni on February 9th of 2015. I didn't get headaches, insomnia, or nausea. I have always been regular with going to the bathroom. On the second or third day I noticed I was getting constipated. I ate foods to correct the problem. It did not happen. In the middle of this, I also fell and hit my right hip. I have intense pain in my groin, hip, and buttocks. Things got so bad, I called the doctor. He told me to get Magnesium Citrate, drink half of the bottle. If I did not go in an hour, drink the rest being a total of 10 ounces. I did not have pain and cramps like with Senokot or Correctal. Six hours later I finally had success! I have never felt pain in my life being impacted like that.

I have 2 MRI's and an Ultrasound scheduled for Wednesday to check for possible hernia and maybe a fracture. Needless to say, I am in a lot of pain right now. The Harvoni definitely has caused the constipation problem.

I will keep you posted once I find out what the problem is. Thanks for being here...
Hugs

Start eating prunes. food, or stool softeners that aren't as harsh as many laxatives. On a lighter note, Lactulose worked all too well for me.

mitzi, I am so sorry you fell and are in pain. Please let us know how things look with your tests.

You know, I have heard a few people are having some noticeable constipation with Harvoni. This is a new treatment and I am glad you are reporting your sides to the forum. I think reporting this to your specialty pharmacy would be a good idea. I spent some time looking around the world wide web and I see several reports of the same side effect. Most that do have sides see headache and fatigue. I am glad treatment a short duration. And Harvoni is so very successful. Big Hugs

Thought I would update everyone on what has transpired in the past week. My gastro had me get Magnesium Citrate. I drank the entire bottle and had a bowel movement 6 hours later. No cramps, gas, it was the best OTC laxative I have ever used. Unfortunately, the constipation continued. My gastro called me in a prescription for Miralax. It is taken once a day and so far has done it's job.

I mentioned that I fell. I had 2 MRI's on the groin and lumbar spine. Nothing notable in the groin area other than, "Ascites of unknown etiology. I don't know what is causing the pain, it is constant. I am wondering if it is a femoral hernia. I have a cat scan scheduled for next Wednesday. Maybe it will show more. I have also considered a groin strain from constipation and straining, but why ascites?

My ultrasound three months ago showed no ascites. This new development is in the lower right groin. I am concerned.

By the way, my viral load done after two weeks of Harvoni shows undetectable. Just hoping I am not too far along with cirrhosis. Any feedback or info on this type of hernia or the ascites in that area will be appreciated.

Hug,
Mitzi

Hi Mitzi, Great news on the 2 week VL. Undetectable is what we love to hear!

I have no ideas on the ascities, other than something to do with cirrhosis, possibly. What does your hepa say? I hope you figure out what is causing your pain soon. The CT scan should answer some questions. Please update as you can.

After your posts regarding constipation on Harvoni, I poked about the internet and did see some others with noted constipation, as I mentioned last time I posted to you. I am glad you are reporting that here so others following your treatment are aware. It looks like one of those missed side effects with this new treatment. I was surprised to see so many others report it. Take care of yourself. Big Hugs

mitzi...

many folks have constipation (with treatment and for lots of other reasons)....me tooo. Chronically...post bladder and bowel surgery (rectocele and cystocele repairs). Pushing can cause problems "down there."

I take the Miralax every single day...it can be purchased over the counter, but is likely cheaper if prescribed. I still have my moments and have added 2 other things to my daily regimen at my pcp's recommendation. 1/2 cup of prune juice with breakfast and a teaspoon of benefiber on something every day...it sort of mixes in and doesn't taste like anything. I put it on cereal or yogurt...it gets a bit clumpy in beverages.

I hope the scans show what is bothering you. Keep us apprised.

Thanks for the advice on constipation.
Update...I am still having pain in lower right groin. MRI showed no problems with hip but it showed mild ascites of unknown etiology. I am having the CT done Wednesday but I believe it is just of the groin. My ultrasound done in January or February showed no ascites. I have read that an inguinal hernia can be common in people with cirrhosis. Can't seem to get definitive answer from my Gastro. Am I correct in saying that once you have developed ascites, you are decompensated? Also, with treatment from the Harvoni, can mild ascites be reversed, or does it just progress?

I am thinking maybe I need to see the liver specialists over in Orlando. My gastro told me my bloodwork was normal. I have asked them to send me a copy. My platelets are at 60,000. If I have ascities, I find it hard to believe my labs are normal. Input will be greatly appreciated.

It is always best to have a liver specialist, hepatologist, look after your care when you have cirrhosis.

It would be for docs to decide if you are compensated or decompensated, though the Internet definitions certainly suggest that. But don't give up the ghost yet...many who are properly treated can manage a long time with a poorly functioning liver...look at aziffle's posts. Orlando has a good program.

Day by day, my friend, day by day...sending good thoughts your way.

Updating the ups and downs. I have 28 more days on the Harvoni. I am very tired and sleepy. I have only had 3 or 4 slight headaches. I have had an ongoing problem with constipation and Mirolax helps.

I have had a consistent pain in my right lower groin and now the lower tip of my left shoulder blade. I have had 2 MRI's without contrast and a CT scan with contrast. I got the results this past Thursday. The ct scan showed mild Ascites and indicated early cirrhosis. Stated I had enlarged spleen. Don't know if I agree with the early part.

The bad news is the ct scan showed a lesion 2.4 x 2.6 on my right kidney. I wasn't expecting that. I have never had a kidney infection that I know of. Also, went to my eye doctor and he ordered a biopsy
on my left lower eye lid. I still do not know what is causing the pain in my lower groin. The MRI did not indicate a problem with my hip. There are issues with my lower back.

My PCP is sending me to 4 specialists concerning my kidney. My concern is if I have any tumors or lesions elsewhere.

I know nothing about the kidneys so I am at a loss. For now, I want to get through the Harvoni treatment and pray things get better, not worse.

Hope everyone is enduring and had a nice holiday. You are all in my thoughts.
Hugs

Thanks, David.....you and Ziff have gotten me through some rough days. Thank you.

I do want to post some information so that others may not have to wait as long as I did to get treatment.
A bit of my history. I was diagnosed positive in 1998. I made sure I had viral loads done. A bunch of them through the years. All results came up undetected. Because of this, I could not get approved for treatment, meanwhile my bloodwork was showing changes. Specifically my platelets. I went from normal to below normal the end of 2010. That is what threw up a red flag for me.

In April of last year, out of the blue, my viral load jumped from undetected to 180,000. No lifestyle changes. My doctor would not do a biopsy because of my low platelets. My insurance denied treatment. My doctor did a Fibrosure test that revealed F-4 Fibrosis. This was a blood test. This test is what got me approved. Without a biopsy. For those of you struggling with your insurance company this test can help getting you approved.

When I started treatment my viral load had climbed to 1,117,767 IU/ml. Two weeks into treatment, my viral load was undetectable. Please don't give up. Also, the cost can be paid by the drug company. I am aware this is posted elsewhere but I wanted to make sure you read it on my post.
