I have been in a study for seven months taking pegalated interferon and
ribaviron. I tested negative at 12 and 24 weeks. When I finish the 48
weeks, my doctor wants me to remain on interferon alone, for another 3
months, to make sure that the virus does not come back. Is there any clear
advantage to this? It has been a difficul time for me and I have had many
problems. I hate the thought of another 3 months unless it is absolutely
necessary. I would like your opinion.
