Pegasys is from Roche company. You can get to their website. I am taking Intron which is Scerring company's. Can anyone tell me which is better?

They're different - not neccessarily one better than the other.

Price?  Various pharmacies charge various prices.  But I found Pegasys to run approx $2000 to $2500 per month (4 shots), same for Peg-Intron.

I don't understand the comment "I can't find my insurance"?  Do you have ins or not?

If not, you can probably get free meds from either Roche or Schering-Plough.

I was a bit baffled about that comment as well....  not having or not finding???  Ihope you have figured it all out now Simon.   I will be starting treatment in May. I do have Insurance but I am on pins and needles worried about what my co-pay for these meds will be. I am a 2b recently diagnosed. I am assuming I will be doing the traditional Peg/Interferone with the Ribav..bla bla bla

Sounds like some of us might  be better off without insurance, in some of these cases! Sad to say!

Would someone be so kind to share their experiences with their Insurance Co. related to their Hep C. condition  I have Blue Cross BS......I have heard nightmares and lullabys.... I just want some facts.
Thanks to all!!

Here in Florida Pegasys runs about $2,500 a month (just over $700.00 a shot) and Ribavirin/Copegsus runs about $1,000 a m onth.
