Hello, I have Hep C and have a doctors appointment soon for it, I was diagnosed with Hep C in 1997, I took the interferon injections for 4 months and couldn t handle the side affects. Now I own and drive a 18 wheeler for a living and I m wondering if the new meds are going to have the same side effects? I can not work and I can not be sick all the time either. It s been 17 years since I was diagnosed, at this point is there a point?
