WHAT ARE THE PERCENT OF RECOVERY WHEN YOU HAVE THE TREATMENT
Response from Dr. McGovern
The percent is a little less than 50 percent. However, you can boost your chances by taking every single dose of medication.
The other issue is that by 12 weeks, it is usually possible to get a very good idea if you are going to respond to treatment or not by checking the level of your virus and to compare it to your pre-treatment virus level.
Also don't drink or use steroids. BOth are bad for treatment outcomes.
Why shouldn't I start treatment?
