29837 tn?1414538248 Was thinking the other day how nice it would be to visit your city. Maybe after tx when I have the requiste energy. Don't know much, have read little, about ammonia levels. But if you read the post in a thread started by Pluggin Away yesterday he makes reference to ammonia levels, brain scatter (great term) and lactuose. Just a few threads down. Take care.

Some of the side effects of triple therapy with Incivek include fatigue, flu like symptoms, nausea, rash, anal/rectal discomfort, and anemia. Do you have a friend or a family member who can help you out for the first 12 weeks?
Avatar f tn Anemia The primary toxicity of Ribavirin is hemolytic anemia, which was observed in approximately 13% of all Ribavirin/peginterferon alfa-2a- treated subjects in clinical trials. Anemia associated with Ribavirin occurs within 1 to 2 weeks of initiation of therapy. Because the initial drop in hemoglobin may be significant, it is advised that hemoglobin or hematocrit be obtained pretreatment and at week 2 and week 4 of therapy or more frequently if clinically indicated.

Avatar n tn He also mentioned that he hated to order another sleep study based on the fact that I physically don't meet any of the criteria that will lead him to believe that I need one, i.e., obesity, smoking, heavy coffee drinker, heavy alcohol drinker--I'm 5' 9" and my weight is 150 lbs; I do not smoke or drink. I pedal my bicycle to work every day. Approximately a 20-mile round trip.
551343 tn?1506834118 He now referes to my initial attack as CIS (clinically isolated syndrome). But I dont fit the MS criteria either. But we discussed possibly starting the MS injections because I am in the very high risk catagory now. I see him agin in Feb 10' to see where I'm at and to make a decision on the injections. Sorry so long....Take Care ....
