Hi. I have been taking tamoxifen for one year and I have just started Harvoni. My oncologist and heptologist both thought that I could take them both. We couldn't find any information to say something different. I was wondering has anyone had any experience with the combinations of these drugs.

Hi Rhondalil and welcome aboard.
As you know, there's nothing in the medical literature to indicate any contraindications/problems in taking both medications.
Plus you've got definitive experts in both specialties giving you the green light.
Are you experiencing unexplained or troublesome symptoms?

Most of us worry unnecessarily...myself included...it's just how we are.
Best of luck to you with your treatments.
Full speed ahead.

Thanks for your positive reply. Yes it's just a worry. I have had so much treatment now. I only started today and will continue with tamoxifen and see how it goes.

Rhonda...I poked around the Internet and found this site: www.drugs.com/drug-interactions/ledipasvir-sofosbuvir,harvoni-index.html?filter=2&generic_only=.

If I were you I'd feel pretty confident you are okay.

Best to you that you are undetected soon and get back to your normal life!!!

Hugs,

MamaLama. I'm in day four of taking Harvoni and have taken it in the morning. By the afternoon I'm really tired. Do you think it would be better taken at night.
