I was on Interferon alpha. I self injected on Monday, Wed and Fri. I never understood why it was in that order and not just every other day. The injections were firstly in right upper abdomen then left UA, right lower abdomen, left LA, right thigh, left thigh. After doing that for 7/8 years it became a bit sore.
I don’t remember having the ‘flu effect. The main downside to Interferon was it was known as being very depressive. I was frequently asked by consultant if it was making me feel suicidal. It was quite a powerful drug obviously, but the patient also had to take into account that no one at that time knew if it actually achieved anything at all. They “thought” it could prolong things, but it was tough for the some of the folk that were on it.
