Side effects from Interferon and Rebetol treatments
Jan 28, 2007

I have recently began treatments for Hep c, and I'm having some serious side effects, after the injections I'm usually sick for three to four days I've been on treatments for 14 weeks, is this the best it's going to get until I'm off treatments, feeling this way after treatments, PLEASE HELP, I'm tired of feeking sick every week end, also I have a rash that itch like crazy on my stomach, where I take my injections is this normal

Response from Dr. McGovern

In my clinic we see patients who are having side effects quite often so we can help them with their side effects. You should contact your doctor tomorrow to request a visit. Most symptoms can be improved with other symptomatic treatments.

Also a rash can occur which responds very well to steroid creams.
