hep c asthma
Sep 25, 2005

I went on peg intefuron last year after 5 weeks I was having a problem breathing I stopped the treatment I still have breathing problems could the meds have given me this condition

Response from Dr. McGovern

Shortness of breath can uncommonly occur due to interstitial pneumonitis - inflammation in the lungs. It is not a chronic condition.

I would discuss the symptoms further with your doctor to determine the degree of your "asthma" with pulmonary function testing.
