I relapsed after responding to Rebetron.
Dear Dr. Chung,
I relapsed after responding to Rebetron. I'm told pegylated interferon/ ribavirin is not being offered to non naive patients. My dose of ribavirin was reduced by 50% due to side effects. Would this still hold true given this fact?
  Dr Chung Writes-  
It depends on your response. you should be able, as a relapser to be retreated, since your success rate is likely to be much better than previous nonresponders. please check with your doctor.
