Hepatitis C

C Anything But Average: Zepatier Part Ugh

I have spent the better part of this past month re-writing
this post, and on March 11, i will find out much more.

Because I legitimately don’t know how to properly convey my despair
and disappointment and fear at what will soon unfold.

Zepatier is a Hep C drug that deals with NS5A resistance,has a very high success rate, and is almost half the price of the leading treatments
Harvoni and Sovaldi.

It’s amazing, and it has shown to work very well in other harder to treat cases.

The drug has one small hitch.

Well, i think it kinda sucks like… a lot.

The contraindication does have a rationale beneath it.

In 1% of cases ALT levels raised 5X within in the first 8
weeks, Clearly, an indicative factor of a problem.

Unless it isn’t.

Which it isn’t.

Most instances self corrected soon after:

So… Now it’s time to figure out how the hell I get this drug, because I
suspect this will be my last treatment. 
success or failure.
Further research should show it’s true efficacy, which i feel will reflect poorly on Zepatier if the drug is prioritized because of its price-point rather than it’s efficacy.
