Yesterday (Friday the 29th) was my 4th interferon injection and by Saturday night I can feel the effects. As usual my morning doses of BI 201335 and ribavirin had me heading for bed with pain/nausea by noon. At least I was able to put in 4 hours at work before the sides kicked in. I felt ok this morning and had cereal with cranberries for breakfast plus coffee. At 10:30 I started eating a banana, a yogurt and an apple sauce with my pills. I thought I was going to be fine but it's a good thing I went home at noon since it really got bad by 1:00 pm. It is now 7 pm and I feel fed up with being like this. There are 9 weeks of what I believe is 240 mg daily dose left to go but if I am on the 120 mg dose I have 21 weeks to go - AAGGGHH!! I am really hoping for 24 week EOT so I can really celebrate the Christmas holidays along with a big glass of wine. As my mother used to say "onwards and upwards".
