treating depression caused by alpha-interferons

More physicians are now treating depression caused by alpha-interferons...Intron A, Roferon-A, and Infergen.

Lots of people are now getting interferon for hepatitis. About 20% of them develop depression...a few even become suicidal.

Depression is more likely with high doses...or with long-term therapy. It also seems to be more common in patients on combo therapy with interferon and ribavirin (Rebetron).
