I been looking for other people with a similar experience. Here's mine.
I started the triple therapy in September this year. Incivik was the new one and the side effects seemed tolerable. One side effect was "anal itching". I did well until the 5th week but I did finally have to get some steroid cream for the itching.
The itching became so bad that when I used the bathroom it burned so badly I screamed. I finally quit. I also experience whole body itching and hallucinated. I was in the ER 3 times for the maddening itching. My viral load remains undetectable.
Christmas eve I was back in the ER for black stool, which could be an indicator of internal bleeding, stomach cramps and severe nausea. I decide to take myself off of the treatment, sadly but the side effects are just too much.
15 years ago I was on the Intreferon/Rebetrol combination therapy. I had some physical problems but nothing like what I I experience recently. I feel like a guinea pigView Thread
