Title: What hydration and nutrition is okay to take while taking Epclusa
Post by: Jete1112 on July 11, 2018, 03:37:04 PM
I have been training for Augusta 70.3 this year and recently found out from the doctor that I have HCV.  Unbeknownst to me it has been in me for 30 years from a blood transfusion that saved my life after a car accident.  Since it has been discovered by blood tests, the doctor has prescribed Epclusa for a cure.  He said my hydration/nutrition for the tri training and events I am in would not mix well with the drug.  Does anyone know of more natural hydration/nutrition system I can start trying out?  Thanks.

I am sorry to hear about your issue.  I am not sure anyone on here is necessarily qualified to give you recommendations for alternate hydration options. 

What is it about your current hydration that is the issue?  Maybe we can help identify options, but you should still confirm it with your doctor.

Im with ACE on this one- Might be best to seek out a nutritionist to work with your doctor.

What is it about your current nutrition that impacts the treatment you have?
