Response from Dr. McGovern

Sounds like you have very good control of your HIV infection. Yes this would be a great time to consider treatment for HCV as well.

I would suggest trying to avoid combining AZT or DDI (two HIV medications) with the HCV therapy due to drug interactions.

Otherwise, you should do well. You should have careful follow-up with your doctor while on treatment.
