Here is My Question:
I have been on Plegridy for 5 months and I only injected in my thighs, I then put on 9 pounds around my thighs during that time. Has anyone lost weight after coming off Plegridy?
There is no convincing evidence that interferons result in weight gain or weight loss. This includes Plegridy which is pegylated interferon
