Interferon Therapy

Is there anyone out there that has been on Interferon therapy for CML?

I want to know if anyone has suffered any long term affects from long term use and if the issues are still hanging on. What I am specifically looking for is fatigue and muscle weakness.

I find it hard to find answers because it has been several years since I was on it, (injecting daily doses of 10 million IU for almost 10 years). Info on line is geared toward Hep C or MS, both of them use different dosages than the use for CML and usually only inject once a week (?) instead of daily or every other day.

I have been taking 400 mg of Gleevec for the past 10 years and 600 mg the year before that.

Any help would be great. Thanks.
