|Prev||Chapter 9. DEALING WITH INTERFERON THERAPY||Next|
Most people are able to continue working while they are being treated with interferon. It may be possible to schedule your shots late in the day or right before the weekend, (or whenever you determine your worst side effects - if any - occur) so they interfere with work as little as possible. If your interferon treatment makes you very tired, you might want to think about adjusting your work schedule for a while. Speak frankly with your employer about your needs and wishes at this time. You may be able to agree on a part-time schedule, or perhaps you can do some of your work at home. Under Federal and state laws, some employers may actually be required to allow you to work a flexible schedule to meet your treatment needs.
