medication guide and anything else

sorry for so rudley posting this on another question friday nite..but just did my shot and...well you know

does anyone ever read the med guides that come in the box with peg-intron??please do...a couple of new things...

                          1) says that rebetol should be taken with food. more of the medicine (on average 70%) will be taken up by the body...

                          i have never taken with food...

                          2) It is not known if peg-intron/rebetol can cure heatitis C (permanetly eliminate virus)or if it can prevent liver failure or liver cancer
                          that is caused by hepatitis C infection.

                          to commdude/mikesimon

                          3)It is also not known if Peg-intron/ rebetol combination therapy will prevent one infected person from infecting another person with
                          hepatitis c

                          also the odds are listed for 1's at 41% svr

                          so read the insert on each time you refill for new info
                          it is not highlighted but you have to pick thru all the old **** too
