Avatar f tn maybe this is what your'e taking? It comes in 400 and 600mg tablets. In my case, my brand of ribavirin was called "Copegus" and manufactured by Roache. Three Rivers is a newer, generic brand I believe.
Avatar n tn This is my 3rd tx. First was regular interferon 3 x per week plus 800 mg. ribavirin. The sides were rough. Second round was Pegintron at reduced dose and 800 mg. ribavirin and the sides were quite bad, maybe worse than the regular interferon. This time it's Pegasys at 180 mcg.(full dose) and 1000 mg. ribavirin and it has been fairly easy. I do have anemia and low platelets but I think that is typical of transplant recipients.
146021 tn?1237208487 Just to comment a little more on "hope, miracles, and prayer", I believe in all three and did all three on treatment with daily prayers. The point made in the other thread did not have to do with statistics versus hope but more on what battles make sense fighting and what battles may not. In the case of certain life-threatening cancers -- and I'll just use it as an example -- there is not choice. The battle must be engaged whatever the odds.
