Nice Roc,

Glad to hear a winning story...

 

 

 

I have a friend going through COPD and there is a new drug out that works great.. but 4 grand a month for meds...

That's the damn problem in this country!
Not many can afford 4 g a month!

Yea that shit was nasty!
I couldn't take it and it only had a 50/50 cure rate with my type.

The new DAA drugs were a cakewalk and 98% cure rate.

I live pretty reckless sometimes, just got my third blood test that i can remember, and amazingly, I am clean. its a wake up call for sure. Its good to know that the interferon treatments are working for people even if they have nasty side effects, its worth it.

I know ppl who successfully cured their hep c with the interferon. I wonder what my fathers got going for him now. His psychiatrist took him off the tegretol bc of the liver damage it causes + having the hep c. Last I heard..

Don't even consider Interferon these days!

The new medications are easy and effect but the fucking greedy Big Pharma keeps it out of reach for too many people.

 

We can get you the new drugs in a licensed generic for less than a grand!

 

Nobody needs to suffer and die because of complications of Hep C!
