Interferon reaction

I did not have any discomfort with my shots (only had 2 so far). About 3 days after first shot I was pretty achy. Last nite was my 2nd shot. I do drink tons of water regularly; 100oz/day. Don't start 3rd drug till day 29 and hoping there is nothing wrong with my interferon.

It has an exp date on it, if it is not expired I am sure it is fine, not everyone has the same side effects from interferon.

Hi..  there is nothing wrong or defective with your INF. The fact is that many people have very mild or no side effects from INF. Some get exactly what you are getting  some mild aches and pains..
Good look with your treatment..
