In doing a DCF valuaation how do you guys usually deal with interest paid on debt

I would usually back out the debt to get the final value for the business after the DCF value

--- but do you calculate earnings for the company by subtracting out interest or do you ignore the interest payments

It seems that to include the interest charges and back out the debt the company gets hit twice but to not back out the interest is somewhat unrealistic
