Diagnosed with Hep-c type 2 B. Was on treatment for 6 months.No bad side affects till 3 months- After injections would get nausea,aches,weakness and some forgetfulness.Also developed shortness of breath.Took vitamins,ate healthy things and excersised as much as i was able.Some dizzyness occured.Started treatment 2/10. Took a while to get my strengh back and had aches for months after.Now I feel great,still undetectable after over a year.Treatment was rough but,it worked for me.I do construction and have no limitations as of now.It won't work if you don't do treatment exactly as directed.3 others were on it at the same time and they all missed the Riboviron pills some days which is important for treatment to be effective.It worked for me and I pray it keeps on.Have bloodwork appt.next month to check levels.I beleive the result will be in my favor as i don't have any of the symtoms i had before treatment.My doctor said that it does not work on everyone.I thank God it worked on me!

very little sideaffects just at the start.

Comment from: Amazing Grace, 55-64 on Treatment for less than 1 month (Patient) Published: December 15

Have only had 2 pepasys injections so far, beginning viral count 7.7 million. For 2 days after injections, very fatigued, nauseated. Riboviron has caused hives from face to ankles-see my doc today, so will hopefully get something for that. Plan to continue treatment if it shows evidence it is working with lab tests.

Comment from: Paul, 55-64 Female on Treatment for 1-6 months (Patient) Published: March 10

I have been taking Pegasys for a myeloproliferative malignancy (bone marrow cancer). It has been thus far very effective in achieving hematologic remission. My counts have returned to normal in 8 weeks at the lowest (45 mcg) dose. Very minimal side effects (a little fatigue). I have now reduced the dose to 35 mcg per week as my counts went a little too low (white cell count) and that seems to be keeping things stable.
