    The initials side effect these meds are tough to handle and you many have multiple side effects to deal with. The average time for the side effects to ease off is anywhere from 6-12 wks. Although these side effects are difficult to handle, the end result is worth it....you can take it or end up dying from the alternative.

At this point I think the cure (which I was told probably wouldn't work for me) is worse than the disease! This is the second round of Interfiron for me and neither ... Show Full Comment
