        Hi,

         

        How are you holding up against the side effects?

        I completed a one-month high dose and 11 months low dose interferon. And i can help you about your side effects.

        What are you experiencing the most?

              Hi,
              I prepared most of the questions regarding my reseaarch about Interferon and its side effects.

              You could be really helpful to my research as you are currently on IFN. I think you should have a diary on how you feel physically and mentally. I regret for not having one now.

              As you know, i am doing this research based on mine and yours experience so we can help others who are currently going through this or about to start their treatment.  

              I do have these questions ready but i while i was doing them i realized that it would be much easier if we do it over Skype or chat.  

              Would you be comfortable enough to talk with me over Skype? It shouldn't take longer than 45 minutes. It would be better because i really can't think
              of all of the questions because we all had somewhat different experience.

              If you are up to this, i will contact you within few weeks. Or whenever you have the time.

              Please let me know what do you think.

              Be well,
              Claude

                    Hi,

                    I am doing a research on interferon side effects and i was wondering if any of you would participate in my research.

                    I went through INTRON A therapy, 30 MIU induction 4 weeks,  and 18MIU maintenance 48 weeks. I had really bad side effects. 

                    Now my goal is to collect all the experiences from people who underwent any kind of treatment with Interferons regardless of their health condition. Intron A, Roferon A, Pegasys.. and so on.

                    With this information i mean to help others, offer them support whether they are about to undergo this therapy or are currently going throug.  Let me know if you are interested.

                    May you all be well.

                          I am doing a research on interferon side effects.

                          I was diagnosed with Nodular Melanoma, T4aN0,M0. Breslow 5mm, Clark IV. So the only option was to start INTRON A or "wait". So i decided to start the treatment well aware of the side effects and it's "effectiveness" on survival rate.

                                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:
