im only 35yrs old and take 30mg oxy tabs-4xs daily. It provides me with enough comfort to live a halfway normal life. but 2 days ago i found out out of nowhere im positive for HEP C and im really scared!!! Is that medication ok for my liver now or should i be prescribed different medication? what medication will work as well and not destroy my liver? Will someone set me straight? thank you kindly. Im sure this has came up before right?
pgogal, I don't know where you live but the BEST treatment for HEP C can be had at the Mount Sinai Hospital, Hematology Dept in New York City. If you're nearby check them out. If not call them for referrals to where you live. It's really important to take Hep C seriously, it is very treatable, new drugs came out this year. And yes really watch all your meds, they tend to overload the liver
functioning. There are a serious of tests you need to find out your Geno-type and then the treatments specifically for which one you are. Maybe your local doctor can do the initial tests before you are referred to specialists for treatment to save time and energy. Best wishes, mindy
Just a quick response- hep C can be at different stages, so until you know more, try not to panic. Also, a long-lasting pain medication that goes through your skin (transdermal patch delivery system that doesn't go through same absorption route) may be better for you and your liver, such as a low-dose fentanyl patch... Just an idea... Hang in there, seek out doctors that know what they're doing, and you'll navigate through this.
