Here is my question:
I am being put under general anesthesia tomorrow to remove my wisdom teeth but am unsure if I should take my Extavia shot tonight or wait until after the surgery.
It makes little difference if you take the Extavia tonight or wait until after you recover. If a person experiences side effects with interferon injections, I usually suggest that they hold their injection until after they recover from surgery. Check with your physician and I suspect he or she will agree. Good luck.
