    Exciting News for WebMD Members!

    We've been busy behind the scenes building new message boards for you. You'll have new and easier ways to find messages, connect with others, and share your stories.

    And, this will all be available on your smartphone or other mobile device!

    What Do You Need to Do?

    The message board you're used to will be closing in the coming weeks. While many of your boards will be making the move to our new home, your posts will not. Want to keep a discussion going? Save posts you want to continue (this includes your member profile story), so that you can re-post them in the new message boards.

    Keep an eye here and on your email inbox, we'll be back in touch soon to give you all the information you need!


    Yours in health,

    Viral load too high

    I was finally approved to start Victrelis, but after 5 wks of Interfuron, my viral levels never came down. My doc said not to start Victrelis, as viral load was too high. I am disappointed. Does anyone have any advice on other options.

    believe in the trials that there were people who responded to the victrelis after a less than favorable drop in the peg/riba lead in phase - i think they dont want to risk it tho - incivek is another option - it requires no lead in with peg/riba
