: Hello,
: I have a friend who has Hepatitus C. He is on the Rebetron treatment and has approximately 2 1/2 mos. to go. But, he is drinking. He was a heavy drinker before and quit for a while, but has started again. What will happen to him? Will the treatment be reversed? I can't seem to find information. Does anyone know of web sites that address this issue? I am very concerned and worried. He won't ask his doctor about the effects of alcohol on this treatment.
Hello, I have an Aunt who sounds a lot like your friend, I dont know any web sites on this but I do know that the alcohol will affect his liver very badly, as we all know alcohol and hepatatis c dont mix, Im not sure what it does to the treatment but it cant be anything good. NOT to be cruel but if hes gonna drink then no need to do the treatment because its not gonna do any good. Best of luck, hope everything works out for your friend
