The eye drops are off the shelf and can be bought at any pharmacy and are called "Systane Ultra" however when I am in the U.S I personally buy Rohto eye drops as I can't seem to find them in Canada.www.myrohto.com
I have tried a few different versions and they all work excellent compared to Visine..the *Rohto Cool* drops lightly freeze your eyes temporarily and its feels really good. I am just glad the eye doctor didn't try to convince me she had some $90 eye drops that somehow worked better otherwise I would have been laughing at her
The dry skin is bothering me most on my shins and calves and also behind my neck where shirt labels are in that area, get terribly itchy all the time but oh well, it could be worse.
I go for another blood test today and then from now one every two weeks. I'm happy to be starting Week 7 and though I have been feeling crappy with stomach cramps, dizzyness and eye problems its really nothing in the end and in another 6 weeks this will be over with and I use my previous test results as motivation to get this treatment finished.
To all those new to Sovaldi+Ribavirin treatment the side effects are very minimal when you consider whats happening, your body is killing off millions of the anti-virus in a very short amount of time and working hard to eradicate this virus so its only natural you will feel a bit sick and run down BUT look around and multiple of us who all started Sovaldi+Ribavirin around the same time have miraculous results and you should also, just stick to the program and take your pills on time and eat healthy and lots of water and you will be fine!
