Your first injection is usually with the nurse. I was very nervous on the first injection. 4 hours later, I got a flu-like symptom. Sleep and take a paracetamol. Not too much as they are bad for the liver.

Tiredness is the most common symptom. Healthy food as always. Try to alkalise your body with fruits and vegetables/juices.

Minimise alcohol or try to avoid completely will be the goal. Take some Vit D3 supplements.

Risky side-effects signs, read the brochure for more detail.

I am currently on 135mcg week 28.

make your vitd25oh blood levels to highend of normal.

vit d is known to boost pegintf response but i believe keeping high normal levels may work to keep inflammation lower which is the most annoying pegintf side during therapy (inflammation  is like when you have a flu, it is nneded to make immune system response but too much makes pains and fatigue)
