Does anyone have information on the long-term side effects of interferon. I am still here 6 years after my 45 weeks of regular injections. Have searched and can't find anything specific. AAny recommendations on search terms would be helpful since I have struck out using long term and chronic. Your assistance would be appreciated. JRoss


I think one of the reasons you're not finding much is that the effects are so unique.  Even when people are taking interferon, the side effects can range from minimal to debilitating.  Six years after it would be really hard to know whether a particular symptom were due to interferon, aging, or something totally different.
