I am wondering if anyone has had elevated liver enzymes from their narcotics? I'm nervous b/c I've been on narcotic therapy about 3 years now (different ones...Percocet, Fentanyl, ms contin...currently switching from Kadian which is a high copay back to oxycontin 40mg three times a day and oxycodone 20mg IR every 6 hours for breakthru)...so I don't take anything with Tylenol now. However, I had a bad cold/flu and took nyquil about 5-6 days straight before having my labs drawn. I just had a complete lab panel done at an endocrinologist a few weeks ago due to my Reglan (for constipation) shooting my prolactin level way up. My lft's were normal then.
Do you think the nyquil could have caused the (hopefully temporary) rise in lft's??? I have to have them repeated in one month and I am really scared. My doctor said he felt it was from the narcotics. Either way, I am just plain nervous about it. I forgot to tell my docytor about the nyquil b/c I diddn't remembver until after he left (house visit)...my hubby helped remind me of it. He said he was running a Hep C screen on me now...which I don't believe I have....I guess as a precaution.
I also take soma, ativan, ambien, reglan, nuvigil. I think that is it. Please tell me the nyquil could have done this!! I know all our meds are metabolized by our livers, but I know some have been on narcotics a lot longer than I have without liver trouble! thanks!
