funny you mention the treatment to hcv leaves one with depression...i guess i'm just opposite....had Depression and nothing got rid of it but interferon and amantadine and ribavirin. my bones dont hurt anymore....no more rashes. no more urq. hmmmm i suppose everyone is different.
i do know that i am not alone...for those who seem to have more sides from the hcv before treatment, usually the better they are on treatment and vise versa.
