Women who are pregnant should not take this medicine or even touch it. If you are a woman, you must have a negative pregnancy test before you start, each month that you are on the therapy, and for six months after you are done with the medicine. These drugs can damage or kill the embryo.
For men, sperm can also be damaged by this treatment. Therefore, both men and women should be sure to use some kind of contraception while on the therapy and for six months after it is done.
You will not be allowed to drink alcoholic drinks while you are on the therapy, or for at least six months after you complete the therapy.
Combination therapy is best for people who have never been on alpha-interferon therapy before, or for people who have tried an alpha-interferon by itself and did not get good results.
