Interferon alpha (INTRON A) or Roferon A side effects

Is there anyone here that went through a biological therapy with Interferons, or is currently going through one.

I would really like to talk with someone about it.

Diagnosis: Nodular Melanoma, Breslow 5mm , Clark IV, no ulceration, no peripheral lymphoadenopathy.

Hello,
Interferon A also has side effects. The most serious side effect is a temporary drop in the number of blood cells made by the bone marrow. These blood cells include red blood cells, white blood cells and platelets. It may also cause tiredness, fatigue, feeling sick, diarrhea, taste change, loss of appetite, depression, weight loss and muscle or joint pains.

It is very difficult to precisely confirm a diagnosis without examination and investigations and the answer is based on the medical information provided. For exact diagnosis, you are requested to consult your doctor. I sincerely hope that helps. Take care and please do keep me posted on how you are doing.

PDATE:

I finished creating my research / book with the help of ************ and it's completely free.

It's called "Dealing with Interferon Side Effects: Patient Stories". And it has...well, exactly what is says. Interviews from other patients who were on Interferon.

I also created and added another booklet called "Interferon-About" which is a collection of useful links i gathered through my research.

I hope this is of some help to someone:
