Dear Eric,

A while ago a group of patients compiled advice from other patients into a "Survival Guide" for those on treatment.
Most of the advice is pretty good and I hear good feedback from patients on it. Some of the information is not so good (don't take antacids unless you really need them. They reduce the absorption of the ribavirin) So, check with your doctor if you decide to take anything that is over the counter.
This was written by patients, not doctors.


You can find it on our website at www.hcop.org, click on favorite links and look for the Guide on that page.

The price for this advice is participation in the Stamps for the Surgeon General Campaign. Read "Make a BIG difference..." post
and please send in your stamp and encourage all your friends and relatives to do the same.

Thanks,

thanbey

PS you can request a treatment mentor from that website, also. Someone who has been there.
