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).

I am not yet put on medication for viral hepatitis, was just tested positive. Probably my doctor will put me on medication hopefully next week.
