Interferon symptoms
Jun 28, 2009

Why do some people have hardly neg. reaction.& OTHERS like myself feel at deaths door, H/A n&v ect. the whole regime, Plus time after.

Response from Dr. McGovern

I wish I knew. You are correct in observing that there is a wide range of symptoms. I have some patients who don't even feel as if they are on treatment. Another minority of patients has terrible symptoms. However, I would say the vast majority are right in the middle - symptomatic but not enough to make them want to stop. Exercising can help with some of the severe fatigue.
