Interferon Roferon Peginterfeon Side Effects
      #273258 - 08/02/13 07:27 AM

Hi,

I am doing a research on side effects of Interferon.

I went through the 1 year therapy with INTRON A, with a really high dose. 30 MIU 5 days a week for 4 weeks and 18 MIU 3 days a week for 48 weeks.

I really had some bad side effects like headache, nausea, fatigue, mild depression, hair thinning, muscle ache (legs and back), fever.

Now i am trying to help all other people who are currently going through a treatment with any form of Interferons like Intron A, Roferon A, Pegasys...etc.

I want to collect people's personal experiences about how they copped with side effects. Maybe some people know home remedies to reduce the sideeffects.

I wish i had someone to talk when i was starting my therapy who really understand what i was going through, but i was alone.

So i want to share these stories with the world and help others who are in need.



May you all be well,
Claude
UPDATE:

I finished creating my research / book with the help of steadyhealth and it's completely free.

It's called "Dealing with Interferon Side Effects: Patient Stories". And it has...well, exactly what is says. Interviews from other patients who were on Interferon.

I also created and added another booklet called "Interferon-About" which is a collection of useful links i gathered through my research.

I hope this is of some help to someone:
