|Long term effects from combination therapy?
Jul 8, 2006
Is it possible to have effects as long as 8 months after treatment ended. Interferon/Ribavirin combination. Experiencing severe mouth sores. Could it be from a reduced immune system?
Response from Dr. McGovern
I would doubt that your mouth sores are related to interferon and ribavirin. The effects of these drugs wash out in the first month.
