Reviews for Intron A
"I have been on Intron A since November 1994. It put me into remission from Chronic Myloid Leukemia, and I have now been in remission for 20 years, but I have to continue on the Intron A. I inject 3 million units twice a week. It has some bad effects, but it did put me into remission; however, I am now having trouble walking and my balance isn't very good. It has also caused some eye problems such as blurred vision, flashing in my eyes, and I have gotten a film over my left eye for a period of time like 3 or 4 minutes."

For Hepatitis C "Peg Interferon ruined my life. I would have rather of of had a short and happy life, than be rid of hep c and feel like I'm in hell . I'm not sure that I will now have a longer life span, but who wants that when you have such a low quality of life. I was ready to endure the horrific side effects for 48 weeks. I was not prepared to still lose hair, have untreatable depression and awful anxiety. I'm tired every day, I have tense muscles that ache, digestive issues, food sensitivities, take thyroid meds and adrenal fatigue. I took the interferon from 2002-2003. Whomever, was involved with this medicine is an awful person. I would rather be buried in the ground dead from liver disease than live this hell for the rest of my life. No doctors, counsellors, friends or family have a clue or any understanding of what this drug did to me. I've tried everything to be the old me. It's like my legs got cut off. But even a person in a wheel chair could at least learn to be happy."

For Hepatitis C "Interferon was the worst experience of my life. The side effects were so horrible and it never did anything good for my Hep C. After each 6 month protocol my blood work showed no effect on the Hep C so at that time the only option was to do it again. But it never worked for me. Also I never had body pain before injecting Interferon and I still have it even after all these years later. I do not care for Interferon at all and looking back at when I was taking it, I really don't know how I did it."
