In brief: Ask your Hepatologis

First of all, you should not be on victrelis (boceprevir) alone.
It is given for only 12 weeks in addition to standard therapy with Ribavirin and interferon. Your hepatologist should discuss treatment duration, frequency of office visits as well as frequency of blood testing before you begin therapy. I suggest you contact your prescribing physician as soon as possible.
