: I have a 32 yr old son w/CF and Hep-C.need input on any known problems for CFer's being treated with Interferon. My son was very active and looked very healthy until he started the interferon treatment. Now,he is on a downhill slide, losing weight,having breathing trouble, lost all vim and vigor. His Dr. seems to have no answer except to take him off the interferon. Seems like this is a death sentence via the Hepatitis-C !! He cannot be the only CFer out there who has had the bad luck to pick-up Hepatitis-C. Need HELP and fast. Thanks.BLR.

Hi ! My name is Mindie Grimes, I found out I hep C when I agve blood at college. I started the new Rebatron wiht Interferon shots about a month ago. I was fine untill I took the first shot. I felt that my heart was going to jump right out of my chest. On my two week blood tests I mentioned the problem, I had an EKG to check my heart and found a slight irrigularity. I also suffered deep depression and had begun to plan on how to die. I have had to stop the treatment, and I mentaly feel better but I still have problems with my heart. Please if you know how long these side effects last tell me. I dont know what is worse, to take 20 years to die with Hep-C, or take the meds and die from that in 2 months to a year! Thank you for reading this. Mindie
