Temperature

Hi.I have a couple of weeks finished treatment for hepatits C with pegintron/ribavirin. During the treatment i had temperature at levels round 37.3-37.4 celcius not changing for 4 days after injection. I measured the temperature the last two days and it has been 37.2-37.3 celcius. I was asking can it be possible by the medications i took, my body needs it or I do not know.These days if have feelt my self very anxious, frightend, concerning about every think but it comes and goes. I don't know i'm feeling not 100% of my self. Is the peg/riba causing this.
Thank you

The drugs stay in our bodies for some time. I think it's 6 weeks for the interferon, and 6 months + for the ribavarin. My Dr. told me to expect to feel better, but also I may have days where I felt like I took a shot. So far 4 weeks+ post I have more energy, but have had a couple of days where I've felt feverish.
All the best to you!
