    What are the common side effects of Interferon Alfa?

    I'm going to start having this in a week or so, depending on my next tests. Just wondering what to expect.

      It is that and more. You might also check out www.chemotherapyadvisor.com because it will give you the regimens as well. Both are free to join. I am also attaching information on Needymeds and you can get discounts on your chemo and scans here as well. Let me know if you should need anything. Best of luck, Carm RN.

      This is a valuable website that I recommend to all my patients. It is called NeedyMeds. This link will take you to the home page. Running across the page, there is a horizontal green stripe about 2 inches from the top. Within that green stripe you will see Brand Name Drugs, Generic Name Drugs, Coupons, Rebates & More, Free Clinics and Clinical Trials. You will find your medications on either the brand or generic name tabs. Also check out the section on the left side of the home page that says Diagnosis-Based Assistance under the second section labeled "Additional Resources." Here, when you click on that link it will take you to a page and half way down highlighted in blue will be "Diagnosis List." Click on that and then in Blue you will see the alphabet in blue, click on "C" and then the first on the list is Cancer-All; click on that. This will take you to a page that lists National and local resources. Usually National organizations are listed first and look in the column to see the resource they provide. Then scroll down to your state and look at the local resources. When you see one that interests you, just click on the name and it will tell you what they offer and also give a link to that resources website. Don't forget to look at all the drugs you take by brand or generic name to see what coupons you can get; this includes pain meds and chemotherapy. Also look into the Coupons, Rebates & More tabs to find personal care product coupons. On the left there is also a link under the Additional Resources that tells you how to get your scans discounted. This is a wonderful site and I am sure you have many friends who can benefit from it as well.
