4th Week of triple therapy

Aug 26, 2011 - 3 comments

Taking Interferon, Riba, and Incivek.  I had to call the MD on Tuesday, I found myself waking up alot itching.  She said the Drug Rep for the Incivek advised the MD to have her patients take Benadryl.  This is helping the itch, I wake up each day now with a new itchy spot.  Both elbows and it is moving down left forarm, under both armpits, inside of both legs and moving down right thigh, around both ankels.  all spots are about the size of a dime.  Ice pack also helps with the itch.  I have been tired this week, sleeping more.  I will know Monday if the Incivek is working or not, all prayers are welcomed!!

I am newbie here and you are the first person on web I have messages. IF any one else xan see this, I wish everyone the best on this journey.  I hate this treatment. I don't see how anyone can have a real job and do this therapy. I think I need an attitude adjustment or at least a new smeller. Does anyone else smell that horrible smell from the incivek. It just makes me so nauseous...all the time. I can't fathom this for 3 months. I have my first blood work next Friday...maybe something else can be done to elevate this smell of death I can't get away from. Got any good advice for me and have you cleared yet? Hugs, MsDragonSlayer
