Q: What if I don't feel like eating?

Some people with HCV may lose their appetite or feel sick. This is especially common in patients on interferon treatment. Try eating many small meals during the day. Avoid foods or smells that make you feel sick. If nausea is a problem, your doctor can prescribe medications. Not eating will make you feel tired. It is important to avoid losing too much weight.
