if you are not depressed and want to try it, it is possible to take it. As long as you don't have other medical issues (thyroid, heart problems).
There are new medications available for hepatitis C given together with interferon with a high cure rate.
in the next 1-2 years there will be a new medication, and this will be approved to be given without interferon
Hepatitis C should not cause symptoms, unless your liver is swollen or very damaged.
