This article focuses on the adverse effects of hepatitis C therapy, which includes pegylated interferon alfa-2a or -2b with ribavirin. The hepatitis C virus provider should remain cognizant of the various organ systems that can be affected, which adverse effects should be addressed with the help of an expert, and the presentation of symptoms as they occur throughout the course of therapy. A systems-based approach should help to characterize the nature of the adverse effects that patients experience, and also to determine when patients should be further investigated by a consultant.
