If i understand the question correctly and you mean interferon specifically, why does this medication (interferon) have such bad side effects, the answer is because this is the way it is, when they give medications to people, some of the medications cause some side effects or reactions to some people.
If the patient who is taking the medication can not tolerate it because of its side effects, there are other alternatives.
Thank you very much for using our website https://doctorslounge.com and i hope that this information helped.
