Just take your pills as prescribed. If you are late or miss a dose just continue on and get back on schedule as best as you can. This would all best be explained by your treating physician. The length of treatment will depend on your genotype of hep c and the medicine prescribed to best treat it.

It could be as simple as one pill as day for 8 or12 weeks. It could be several pills a day for 12 weeks. If you have advanced liver disease like I do it could be as long as 24 weeks.

See your doctor.

What kind of scheduling do you mean? Are you on some kind of program?

All I had to do was take my meds and get blood testing every few weeks.

I had insurance through my job that paid for my treatment.
