Avatar n tn no, it will effect the medication and either make it not work or intensfy. it will say on the bottle of the medication not to take the meds. with alcohol.
Avatar n tn You should choose mild soaps without dyes or perfumes and use a mild, unscented laundry detergent when washing clothes, towels and bedding. If however the itching continues then definitely internal diseases like liver and kidney disorders,diabetes, iron deficiency anemia have to be probed.Liver and kidney function tests will give an idea about the condition of liver or kidneys.A consultation of an allergist or physician in that case will be the best. Hope it helps.
Avatar n tn It affects mostly lungs, pancreas, liver, intestines, sinuses, and sex organs. If your wife has shown immunity towards ciprofloxacin then other antibiotics like azithromycin can be tried.pls discuss this option with your wife’s doctor.Also sputum culture or mucus(from the mouth) culture should be done to find out the antibiotics which may show sensitivity or resistance to your wife’s immune system.Antibiotics which show sensitivity should be tried.
867582 tn?1311630997 I bet they've changed their tune by now. I was sure then and am sure now that Cipro was the cause. My liver enzymes even went sky high. Most UTIs are wiped out by much more benign antibiotics, so I agree with WAF 100%.
1833444 tn?1325560662 I have had hep c probably 30 yrs. i have never had any liver pain. I was prescribed Cipro and Flagel a couple weeks ago for what may be diverticulosis. I never have reactions to drugs but it made me so sick that i couldnt do anymore after 8 of my 10 days. My joints are still hurting ( 3 days off meds), have liver pain, had horrible headaches while on it. Super tired, anxiety, night terrors, menapausal hotflashes 10 x worse.
Avatar n tn I was also very fatigued and nasuas at times. I went back to the doctor and had blood, urine, and stool tests done. All came back negitive. The doctor then prescribed me 10 days of cipro. Again not knowing I should drink milk or have iron supplements(potatos?) beacuse these bind with the cipro. stool somewhat cleared up and only dull pains in stomach. I thought I was cured. no nasuea, no fatigue, and i gained my appetite back.
Avatar n tn Has anyone used Cipro and found that it stopped constant diahrea that followed a colectomy? This discussion is related to <a href=''>Constant diarrhea after colectomy</a>.
Avatar n tn Week 1: ALT 123 AST 95 Protein 8.8 Lymphs 49 Glucose 100 Week 2: ALT 178 AST 245 Protein 8.8 Lymph 49 Glucose 104 Week 3 ALT 195 AST 148 Protein 8.8 Lymph 51 Glucose 100 I tested negative for Hepetitis A/B/C, HIV, and other "quick picks" both at the ER during week 1 and during week 3 at PCP. I had a full 5 day cycle of Cipro with no change, and 5 day cycle of Macrobid with no change until 10 days past end of both these cycles. I have lost 11 lbs during the illness so far.
Avatar m tn He ordered a whole lot of blood work, including liver panel, thyroid and HIV. I started freaking out and since then I've been feeling depressed, fatigued and nautious as well. I get hungry close to meal time, then I eat and right after I start eating my appetite goes away and I have to shove the food down..then I become nautious for the rest of the time until the next meal approaches. I was tested for HIV about 2 years ago and I only had one sexual intercourse in the mean time.
Avatar n tn html Lyme bacteria are spirochetes, and when they die, the cell parts act as toxins until they are processed and detoxified by the liver. This causes some of the symptoms that you experienced, and is known as a Jarische Herxheimer reaction. This is sometimes used as a test to see if a person has Lyme. The physician prescribes an antibiotic that is known to kill Lyme bacteria, and if the person's symptoms get worse, he is considered to be having a Herxheimer reaction.
Avatar f tn to get the results and he told me that they found some lesions on my liver and poked around there a while...(Not painful). Now I have to go for an ultrasound of the liver and a GI. Im scared, not quite sure what to expect. Any feedback would be helpful. Thanks.
Avatar n tn I'm wondering if there is any correlation between the general itching and the progress of the PSC in my liver? I've been on Cipro for 2 weeks which has curbed the itching and almost curbed the night sweats. I'm also curious if any of the liver cleansing alternative treatments found on line would be detrimental for me to try at this time?
Avatar n tn Most people who receive liver transplants are in ESLD. Look up to learn more and contact your nearest tp center for additional information. Hope this helps.
Avatar n tn I was on Cipro each time. I read in RARE cases, Cipro can elevate liver enzymes. Could this be the cause? Would it be with me 4 weeks after taking it? The ONLY other thing I was doing that was "new" was I started taking prenatal vitamins just before I began all this lab-work, as my husband & I are trying to conceive. I am now reading a lot about iron toxicity -- while I don't have symptoms, could the iron in the vitamins be affecting my liver enzymes?
Avatar n tn After that I had a CT scan secondary to abdominal pain and all was ok with exception of inflamed colon. They gave me Cipro and Flagyll x10 days, made me very sick. Since then, I went to ER about 2 weeks after meds)for blood in stools and had C-difficel. They gave me Vancomyacin for the problem. Also, the blood level of bilirubin at that time of the c-diff was at .9 which is more at normal level but I usually run high (around 1.4).
Avatar n tn It has now been 40 days after the incident and 8 days of taking the mineral/vitamins and still sensitive to light,blood shot eyes, I feel like I'm not getting enough sleep with 8 hours of sleep,fatigued after being more active, and throbbing in the liver area which comes and goes, it lasts a couple minutes, also 0 sex drive. I also feel much better at night when there is less light. The location of the throbbing is to the left under my right rib cage .
Avatar f tn The SGPT and SGOT levels are elevated in liver disorders. Besides this they are also elevated in conditions like muscle injury and sometimes due to medications. GTT (gamma glutamyl transpeptidase) is often elevated in those who use alcohol. But it is also elevated due to liver-toxic substances like paracetamol. It's likely that the medications you are using could have caused this elevation. Please re check these values to study their progression. Hope this helped and do keep us posted.
Avatar f tn During the Avelox course of treatment, I was coughing very hard over the sink in the bathroom and from my right nostril a huge liver looking clot came flying out and splashed all over the place my shirt was covered. It shocked me but then another of the same came out. I had a ct of sinuses the day before and I was very blocked . Next day along with green , came a strange orangey /yellow mucus came out constant for a day , then green again.
233616 tn?1312790796 The people most in need of this information are late stage liver patients, and those taking anti-rejection, or HIV drugs, or who are medicating for any other serious medical condition. Especially if these groups plan on treating their Hepatitis, this information could prove invaluable. Actually anyone doing triple therapy really does need to pay attention here. Many of you have written privately asking me to filter my knowledge base down to it’s essence on my favorite topics.
Avatar n tn 32 yr old male diagnosed with Prostatitis(last month due to burning sperm) and Acid reflux problems in the past(took prevacid for 8 months. OCD/HIGH ANXIETY has been a problem regarding health as well. Dull pain on right side under ribs on occasions. Seems to go away with belching or gas release. Feet sometimes get cold.

Avatar n tn coronary, pulmonary or spontaneous bleeding and clotting can occur at any time and hasten death Additionally, it is not uncommon for liver failure patients to wax and wane in terms of their mentation, confusion and overall state. Paradoxically, it's a laxative (lactulose) which can improve their mentation by converting and clearing amonium from the system - which is a function of a healthy liver So it's a roller coaster I'm afraid.
Avatar m tn My question is if the monthly liver test does detect some abnormality at any point, and I immediately stop the medication, is the damage truly irreversible? I was always under the impression that the liver is regenerative to an extent and that if I were able to detect slight damage early enough that the damage could be reversed by stopping treatment to allow the liver to regernerate.
Avatar n tn I had an abdominal ultrasound done on 12/21/05, and the liver, pancreas, and gall bladder were seen as normal, except that a gallstone was found (without ductal dilatation, w/o widening of gall bladder walls, etc. and thus, was adjudged not to be a potential source of my RUQ adominbal/right rib cage pain). As shown below, lab tests were done before surgery (on 11/17/05), on 12/5/05, on 12/19/05, and, finally, on 1/10/06.
1927233 tn?1326673987 Pain in my abdomen, specifically in the upper and upper right side (aka stomach and liver area), extreme bloating after eating, nauseua, fatigue/malaise, loss of sex drive. Also my tongue will turn bright orange sometimes, and often there is a "raw dough" taste in my month, it feels like my stomach and esophagus are full and bloating.
Avatar f tn Patient response rates to hepatitis C therapy can be variable, depending on factors such as viral genotype and subtype, and liver fibrosis. Patients with genotype 1a, IL28B genotype TT and METAVIR scores of F3 and F4 can be particularly challenging to cure," said Maria Beumont, M.D., medical leader for simeprevir, Janssen. "Janssen is committed to advancing hepatitis C therapy for even the most difficult-to-cure patients." -------------------- Mainly this comment......
233616 tn?1312790796 Whenever you inhibit a metabolizer, you raise the level of that drug in your bloodstream and liver....and it makes you sick. CYP3A4 - Allows HCV to move from cell to cell. Cell migration is one of the ways in which HCV keeps itself alive and multiplying. It has to keep moving to new cells. So inhibiting CYP3A4 will lower your viral load. A recent study showed that grapefruit juice lowered viral load, because there's a bioflavanoid in grapefruit juice that inhibits CYP3A4.
Avatar n tn I went back to him 5 days later as my symptoms were the same. He sent me for an abdominal US and started me on antibiotics (Cipro 750mg 2X/12 days.) After starting the Cipro, I was asymptomatic. The US showed thickened gallbladder wall (5 mm) and some sludge. I had a CT scan a week later. It showed a well defined low attenuation 4.5 cm lesion on the right posterior lobe of my liver. The radiologist's diferential diagnosis was a liver abcess versus hepatoma.
