Reviews for Rebetol

For Hepatitis C "48 weeks treatment of HCV 1(a b) by NHS (UK national free Medicaid? equivalent). Dosage was lowered at one point due to adverse side effects on blood count, re: haemolytic anaemia, thrombocytopenia, neutropenia. Post treatment suffered acute pancreatitis episode. Numerous other adverse side effects during and post treatment chronic (for 9 years) side effects attributable to (either/both) ribavirin and interferon - the more serious chronic effects include: depression, anxiety, memory impairment, fatigue, sleep disorder, concentration and executive function impairment. Brief episode of delusion / psychosis during treatment. Initially responded but relapsed early during treatment despite rigorous adherence to treatment schedule."

For Hepatitis C "After treatment for 48 weeks with Rebetol combined with PegInteron I no longer have virus in my system. Side effects included extreme fatigue toward the end of treatment, along with flu-like symptoms every weekend after administering the shot of PegInteron on Fridays."
