Procrit and Pegasys Injections on the same day?

Hi all, starting on Procrit tomorrow. Just so happens that's the same day I take my Interferon injections. I'm working with two different doctors; GI to treat the hepatitis (riba/interferon/incivek), Hematologist to treat the anemia (Procrit). Never taken Procrit before, neither doctor advised one way or the other on administering both drugs on the same day so I assume ... it's OK to take both on the same day? What say you....

Thanks,
Margie

I was told by my hepatologist not to take them on the same day.  I take my pegasys shot on fridays and procrit on saturdays.

I used to take infergen daily so I had no choice but to take it the same day. Never had a problem with that. Joe
