Fluconazole liver damage

Common Questions and Answers about Fluconazole liver damage

diflucan

My question is this - my doctor's nurse just told me that they didn't want to prescribe me any additional Rx for this because it can damage the liver. I have been taking ketoconazole for about 1.5 months (just stopped taking it) and am now taking 100mg fluconazole and 250mg lamisil pills at the same time once per day. Is it true that this can damage my liver? Should I be concerned at this point? I've checked the whites of my eyes and there is no yellowing what-so-ever.
even with treatment Have I possibly done damage to my liver, kidneys or other organs? Is Terry's nails something to worry about? Thanks!
Visible rash still only on left back of neck. Am still on weekly fluconazole. I'm gonna be the happiest woman today, as my man is coming home. He'll be home for 9 days. I feel blessed!
My ALT was 35 (top of the range). I know a little bit about this testing and having an elevated reading could be liver damage. I am wondering what medications could possilbe effect this test, if any. I am also wondering if I should be very concerned with my results. Can anyone offer any advise?

Tetracycline, Isoniazid and Rifampin have prolonged half life in patients with liver cirrhosis. Metronidazole ketocanozole, miconazole, fluconazole, itraconazole, and nitrofurantoin pyrazinamide should be used with caution. Beta-lactum antibiotics can cause leucopenia, while amino glycosides can increase susceptibility to renal failure. Vancomycin can cause increased toxicity in patients with liver failure.
A month ago I started having sore tongue and mouth and my Doc prescribed Mycelex Troche tablets. I took them for a week and most of the symptoms seemed to disappear. Unfortunately, last week they came back. I went to a Dermatologist; they took culture from the back of my tongue and confirmed some yeast infection. They prescribed Diflucan (Fluconazole) 100mg daily (2 tablets first day). But they advised me to talk with my Hep Doctor before starting the anti-fungal Tx.
In general, it has seemed that I have been having difficulty healing.. and i'm not sure why my nails would turn white. Have I possibly done damage to my liver kidneys or other organs? Thanks!
While Marcia’s doctor apparently approved fluconazole for her particular use, I’d still tread with caution regarding any of the ‘****azole’ antifungal medications; they can cause elevated liver enzymes and occasionally liver damage— Bill
You get the idea, your enzymes are not normal. This means you have ongoing liver damage. It however does not tell you the amount of damage your liver has sustained. Many here are doing a wait and watch approach with little to no liver damage. Some are even waiting with stage 3. This is OK, however to you must be diligent on the 'watch' part, And you totally dropped the ball here. Or is the real reason, you are scared to death, of finding out your true state of health ?
Platelets do vary anyway. It was my understanding that the platelet drop can be relative to the liver damage i.e. if you start low, it's going to take more of a tumble - I was really nervous about it. Mine were in 190/170 range prior, but years ago, during my first tx, they dropped from 220's to 170 - with no liver damage, and I felt sure, with the more severe damage, I was borderline.
eg, codeine, hydrocodone, oxycodone, methadone, buprenorphine, tramadol, and fentanyl. Individual patients may have genetic variants of the enzymes, or may be taking inducer or inhibitor drugs, that strongly influence opioid metabolism and, hence, their detectable presence or absence in urine (or blood, or oral fluid if used) [see, Carlozzi et al. 2008; Smith 2009].
I have now taken Diflucan (fluconazole) for extended periods of time, but it has risks of liver damage. The medical profession has viewed antibiotics as low-risk tools for a half century now, but it's not like that for everyone. Some of us may be more sensitive to the effects of massive antibiotics, and in addition I was taking (at the LLMD's insistence) a yeast-based probiotic called Florastor, which I am now told not to take again.
AST (SGOT) and ALT (SGPT) are sensitive indicators of liver damage or injury from different types of disease. But it must be emphasized that higher-than-normal levels of these liver enzymes should not be automatically equated with liver disease. They may mean liver problems or they may not. For example, elevations of these enzymes can occur with muscle damage.
Often symptoms can be quite irritating and will not go without treatment. Thrush does not damage the vagina, and it does not spread to damage the uterus (womb). If you are pregnant it will not harm your baby.. .Who gets vaginal thrush? More than half of all women have at least one bout of thrush in their life. In most cases it develops 'out of the blue' for no apparent reason. However, certain factors can make thrush more likely to develop.

You will also have to really edit this, as there is a limit on how long your post can be. You could be doing some severe damage to your liver with your meds - fluconazole, even at low doses, can cause liver injury, as can nystantin. Hepatic injury can cause symptoms like you are describing. I am not saying something isn't wrong with you. I don't know what it is - nor will any doctor without some testing. Your doctor can do a culture of the area and find out if there is yeast present.
Also anxiety is a sign of problems in the liver too. You must avoid pharmaceutical drugs especially paracetamol etc which damage your liver. The symptoms will be most prominent when you consume foods high in fat, caffeine - especially filter coffee, and alcohol. I would also avoid dairy and wheat, so try out a vegan diet perhaps with some fish but no processed carbs. Too much chocolate can also put a burden on your liver and can worsen the anxiety.
A recent MRI showed that the sinuses have improved significantly leading me to believe that fungus needs to be looked at for sinus infections not just bacteria. Fluconazole can be hard on the liver so make sure to get liver function tests done before and during treatment. I did go off the medication after 3 weeks because I was having some major effects with my digestive system, probably due to more fungal issues.
NP said it was a sinus infection, but sinus meds made it worse. GP said it was fungus, but Fluconazole just made my hair fall out and my lips peel off daily. Saliva test for candida was negative. ENT prescribed Nystatin oral, which caused rashes everywhere and did not help anything. IM doctor said I was "more toxic than most people" and tried to sell me supplements including zeolite and colloidal silver. I've tried Itraconazole and lots of OTC herbs.
I was fortunate the level was not that high. It was an easy cure and I'am fine, (no damage to me or my new liver), but I wanted to warn everyone about this. My doctor told me there are many foods that are being tested to see what there reaction is when Prograf is used by a transplant recipient. The new foods being tested are all citrus fruits. Pomegranate and apricots are now being studied to see if they have the same effect as grapefruit juice, (increasing Prograf levels).
My LLMD was amazed when my blood test came back very positive, but then he jumped on it and treated with Diflucan, which gets into the blood stream and not just on the surface of the digestive tract, and he used high doses for a longer than standard time, tho there is risk of liver damage from that.
I know about aspirin and I don't take it either. Coumadin will destroy soft tissue. I suffered memory loss, had my gums destryed and suffered liver damage. As far as I can tell it was not necessary. People who are put on this drug need to be very aware of the dangers involved in using it, only use it if it is the only course and only use it for the minimum amount of time possible. It took over a year for me to recover the ability to speak correctly again.
If the liver becomes compromised it can have an effect on your endocrine system and if your hormones becomes imbalanced all hell can break loose. Liver damage also makes it very difficult for you body to process toxins. Be very careful. I do speak from experience. The yeast buster kit seems to be working, albeit, slowly. I am noticing a lot of little things that are different.
and my DR put me on Metronidazole 500MG twice a day for 5 days, after that I got a Yeast Infection, and was put on Fluconazole 150mg, take 1 by mouth, then repeat in 48hrs. ( only 2 doses) I'm not sure if any of that is related or not, but doesn't hurt to have the extra info.
Most of the gastro-intestinal tract is tender when pressed, especially the small intestine, liver and gall bladder. There may even have been a gall bladder operation that failed to improve the condition, sometimes even worsening the symptoms. There could be a history of thrush or oral, anal or vaginal itching. When these are present the diagnosis of Candida is obvious but it may also be present in the absence of these manifestations and that can be somewhat confusing.
I have done ANA, ESR, ASO, RPR, TPHA, MRSA,HSV 1&2, HPV - DNA by PCR, CMV, HBV, HCV, HAV (IgM (at 2 months), 7 HIV 1&2 and one HIV Western Blot, Liver and Kidney function tests, TSH, Free T3, Free T4, AFP, CEA, Ferritin, haemoglobin A1C, Testosterone total, Calcium, several urine analysis and culture, mycoplasma hominis, ureaplasma,, progesterone, zink and stool analysis. I also did HTLV test and waiting for the results From all these tests I just found out about the parasite.
