After completion of Hepatitis C treatment the above symptoms started getting better but she got pneumonia and hospitalized (plural effusion and mild pericardial effusion)in the last of third month (after cessation of Hep C therapy). Her Anti-dsDNA was 1334 and ANA was 1.59(normal range (as per Lab) was <1.5), C3,C4 and ENA titers were all in normal ranges.Now she is being given Steriods (Deltacortril) and HCQ 200 which has been tapered down to one tablet of Deltacortril(prednisolone) on alternate day and one tablet HCQ daily. Presently she is having Uriticaria otherwise she is fine.

Post-treatment symptom is gout, not experienced during 48 weeks on HCV triple drug therapy, but has been very uncomfortable since stopping treatment. Any ideas? Thanks.

Prednisone is the standard treatment for gout.
From this study (2 months ago):
After treatment for Hepatitis C Using triple therapy (Interferon, Ribaviran, and Incivek) I seem to have a significant drop in the quality of life. I had NO liver damage, a low viral load, and had never been treated before. I had the virus for less than 5 years before treating. I have severe fatigue, digestive problems, irritable bowel, constipation, change in eye sight, appetite, taste, unexplained weight gain along with decreased appetite, nausea, reflux, heartburn, migraines, skin problems, hormone problems, and my quality of life is worse now than before treatment.
