Patient Comments: Viral Hepatitis - Treatment

What types of treatment, including medication, have you received for your viral hepatitis?

Comment from: Steve Bulk, 55-64 Male (Patient) Published: January 12

I got on interferon for viral hepatitis in 2003 which didn't work out, even after half a year of treatment. Now I am considering these new hepatitis C drugs that are more successful but my health insurance doesn't cover the costs, and costs are pretty high. I'm thinking about getting it from abroad (US citizen).
