Inteferon dosage
Mar 21, 2003

I am on treatment for Hep c Peg-interon/Riboviron. I a getting conflicting answers on the dosage for peg-interon. I started with 120 MCL then went to 50 MCL once a week. I take 5 Ribavirin tablets per day. I weigh 185 and 5'10". Thanks for your help

Response from Dr. Dieterich

The ribavirin dose is the correct one for your weight. However you need to ask your MD about the dose of Peg. They may have reduced the dose for a reason that you should be made aware of. Ask the question! Good luck! DTD
