congrats! it seems to take a lot to make it through this drug therapy. Having faith that Jesus did die for our sins and that we all need salvation and a cure. I am happy for you and your family. You will be in my prayers!View Thread
I am not sure about this but I just want to tell you that I am probably just as nervous as you are! I just took my first shot tonight of the combo therapy, and I have to tell you that my faith is what is going to keep me healthy through this. Communion and daily prayer will help with the side effects and getting to know God (who created you and this medication) can carry us through!. Lets keep positivity on the priority list and just know that we are all in this together. We may have made some bad choices in the past but the Lord Jesus can forgive our sins and deliver us a MIRACLE in a BOX!!! (this medication) so that is how I am going to look at it. I will be here since I would like to share my testimony to others as well. I am vegan and I exercise and do stretching to keep healthy. I know a lot about vitamins and minerals, and even various herbs for support. Just stay away from St. Johns Wort!! Highly toxic..I am also taking a health class this semester to help me in my treatment as well as in my life Education is the key, don't focus on side effects, focus on being able to have another try at life!!! ..well you are in my prayers.View Thread
I have just gotten my first shipment of all three combination drugs absolutelyFREE through the drug manufactures. There are two manufacture programs for three different drugs. They have programs for people that have no insurance at all and need to be treated as well as those that have insurance but you just cant cover it all. THESE MEDICATIONS ARE FREE!!! You still have to work with your Dr. or Hepatologist to get all the prescriptions and to get set up. There is an application and some paperwork that needs to be completed by you as well as your Dr., but its really a rather simple process. Here are the phone numbers to get started. They will send you an application in the mail... Pegasus Program is called Access Solutions 1-877-PEGASYS (734-2797) Or go to the website at: http://www.pegasys.com/patient/for-patients/access-solutions/index.html
Yes I get all three medication completely for free. Call Pegasus at 877-734-2797 to get started with the Pegasus. For the Teleprivr and Ribroviron call 888-929-3334 to get started. I hope this helps.View Thread
