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.

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!
