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
