These will cover all possible adverse reactions caused by pegasys and copegus.

It would be best to discuss this with your doc as he knows your prior medical history.

Stoke is listed right on their website so my thought is if it can make a stroke happen then yes, TIA would most likely be in that breakdown as well.  good luck


PEGASYS can cause serious side effects, such as mental health problems and suicide, heart problems, stroke or symptoms of a stroke, new or worsening autoimmune problems, and infections. Some of these side effects may cause death. Tell your healthcare provider right away if your loved one has any of these symptoms while taking their treatment with PEGASYS.
