Hello all, I wanted to share a unique occurrence which happedned to me just last week. Keep in mind, I'm not condemning the drugs as I still have to take them but only to warn others of the possible effects.
Last week I went to my doctor for a company paid phusical and was alarmed when they told me to come back for a repeat liver enzyme test which they stated was elevated. I scheduled a re-test for a couple days later and in the meantime researched the Celebrex, Tylenol and Tramadol I was using. I Found out Celebrex Tylenol can elevate liver reading in blood tests and have a real risk of causing liver damage if taken for long periods. The Tramadol came up pretty safe to take in all areas.
I stopped taking the Celebrex and the other drugs for two days before the second test and low and behold, the liver test was back in the normal range. The lab confirmed these and other medications are known to cause elevated liver test readings and to cause liver damage in some people.
I still take the drugs prescribed by the doctor but am thinking of finding another anti-inflammatory drug to replace the Celebrex.
