treating depression caused by alpha-interferons

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

Depression is more likely with high doses...or with therapy that lasts several months or longer. Depression also seems to be more common in patients using the combo therapy, Rebetron.
