Hi Lloyd,

Hope all is going well for you all in Arizona, it sure is hot here right now.

Yesterday I started week (4) of solvaldi/ribivarin 400/600 mg. and a few questions.

CVS: One In 12 Hepatitis C Patients Not Adhering To $1,000/Day Pill

I am currently receiving nearly one email a day from people who have used Sovaldi who have either relapsed or have what are described as serious continuous negative side effects.

These side effect range from sight impairment, serious nonstop headaches, extremely low platelets, pancreatitis, shacking, very similar to Parkinson’s disease, dry and breaking nails, dry hair, so dry that it cannot be corrected. Some have told me there hair started turning gray half way thru treatment and started falling out. The list goes on.

Most however become non detected but with some brutal side effects never mentioned in any of the trials. I believe that this is due to the fact that when selecting individuals for the trials they only select the healthiest people. I have seen this in my practice, only the healthiest people are selected, ones with some difficulties, even slight problems, they are left out.

The main groups that I see that are relapsing are people who used Pegasus and Peg intron and people with advanced cirrhosis. It seems so far that people who used interferon Alfa 2 B only do well and people who have used my program and never used interferon do far better.

Gilead sure painted a picture  of a complete cure, no problems, only $ 1000 a pill and they gracefully left out the negatives. Certainly nothing seen yet as horrible as interferon but there may be some serious issues.

In health,
Lloyd Wright

Hepatitis C Treatment May Cause Death

Considered the drug of choice for hepatitis C and chronic liver disease, interferon may cause side effects and even death when used a second time, according to a new review.

Nonresponders to Interferon-based Treatment of HCV Exhibit an Increased Long-Term Hazard of Cirrhosis Compared to Never Treated

The long-term consequences of failed interferon-alpha based hepatitis C treatment on liver morbidity and survival have not been fully explored. We performed retrospective analyses to assess long-term clinical outcomes among treated and untreated patients with hepatitis C virus in two independent cohorts from a United States Veterans Affairs Medical Center and a University Teaching Hospital. Eligible patients underwent liver biopsy during consideration for interferon-alpha based treatment between 1992 and 2007.

I have been denied Long term disability because they cannot prove that I have pain

from Barbara via Ask Lloyd
I was diagnosed with Hep C in 2006, did the treatment of Ribavirin and strongest dose of Interferon, I have cleared the virus, although since the treatment I have extreme muscle pain and some joint pain, I tried for a few years to continue to work, but am unable to, due to pain, my memory is terrible, I take my pain meds and fall asleep in the office. I have been denied Long term disability because they cannot prove that I have pain, xrays, blood work cannot show my pain level. Do you know of anyone that has been able to get disability from this most horrible problem. I am not the person I used to be.... I was always the most active person, and now my life is completely different.
