  Yes, it means that your own immune system is very responsive to the Interferon. I was Und at 4 weeks, and treated fro 28 wks, and I'm now cured. It's still hard for me to believe!  Good luck to you~

Puking is miserable. If you are having trouble with nausea and/or vomiting, that can be treated. Many of us took Zofran to prevent the nausea and vomiting. There are other drugs too, but Zofran works very well and won't make you sleepy. I took it 3 times a day (8 mg every 8 hours if I recall correctly). Just give your doctor a call. You need to eat and keep food down and there is no reason to suffer nausea and/or vomiting while on Tx.

Hope you feel better soon.

I really do like to hear good news, and thats the best. Best wishes and continued good hunting.
In regards to puking.....
Just became an issue, about a week ago, beginning week 26 seems my stomach would rather not take anymore pills, No matter what I do with in two hours of taking them they want out, not just that but have also noticed what appears to be a breakdown in the digestive process, the food seems to not be being processed.
Of course I have had to learn to let things take their course I have my monthly app this next Thursday, and beings has to how there is a period of time between ingestion and exploitation that there is no telling about the absorption rate of the Riba, and do not wish to take more than needed.

"there is no telling about the absorption rate of the Riba"

Riba reaches it's peak concentration at about 2 hrs after taking

Pharmacokinetics

Multiple dose ribavirin pharmacokinetic data are available for HCV patients who received ribavirin in combination with peginterferon alfa-2a. Following administration of 1200 mg/day with food for 12 weeks mean±SD (n=39; body weight greater than 75 kg) AUC0-12hr was 25,361±7110 ng∙hr/mL and Cmax was 2748±818 ng/mL. The average time to reach Cmax was 2 hours.
