Hepatitis C Treatment: What to Expect

With the advent of the new Hepatitis C medications, treatment is no longer as complex and or side-effect burdened as it once was. As a result many people are now actively seeking treatment, yet the notion that starting treatment consists of simply being prescribed the new medications is often not the case.
