It is normal with Pegasus (which is interferon) to have that rotten day, or few days with injection. If you go to Alaskan in Florida's thread, I gave Alaska some tips my husband used for the various sides. Hope you are drinking the water for the side fx.
As David stated...you don't want to use Ibuprofen with liver disease. Tylenol yes, but not over a normal dose. Your labs will fluctuate...it is blood numbers and they move around. The doctors are looking for trends, not hard numbers. But red flags on your labs let them know to re-test, or have you change something. You want to complete, and beat this thing.
Be encouraged. Take it easy and know there are going to be bad days...but you have too many beautiful days in your future when you are free of this miserable, Hep C. Depression and anxiety are side's of your treatment. Try to see the end game. Big Hugs
