I found online somewhere that Gabapentin can inflame the liver, yet, also read that it is not metabolized in the liver at all. I read that incidents of liver problems are less than one percent as stated by Pfizer.
You answered your own question. The drug company will give the percentage of incidence. Even if a drug isn't metabolized by the liver, it filters through it.
Dude whoever you are listen to my warning. Dont take neurontin/gabapentin. I have gotten liver problems from it.
My Nerologist told me it was safe but I'm not to sure after reading some responses. I have Stage 4 NASH Cirrhosis with a few other complications. I sure don't need a drug to interfere with it. I'm kind of worried now. I've been on the Gabapentin for a little over a month with no relief yet. I take 300mgs a day
Get off of the gabapentin. Go slowly while getting off of it. Best of luck to you and god bless. Trish
Drug companies that do studies on their own products are bias and should not be trusted reporting statistics. It's a billion dollar business and they will sell the product regardless of the consequences just like any other major cut-throat company. The Doctors are not the best source of current information on the hundreds of medications they are prescribing either, they simply do not have the time. Research independent studies & clinical trials for all drugs prescribed. Unfortunately we are all on our own when it comes to taking medications. Appears we are all becoming over medicated if we can afford to be. Look for facts and be aware that individuals are all different from each other when side effects are involved. A little bit of reading can be a life saver!
