i am hep c positive. will the drug affect my liver?
There are many different ways to administer oxaprozin, and the drug itself depending on administer has been known to make hep c or other hep viruses to infect the individual... you need to speak with you md and tell him a little more about your health history, get all information available on this drug from your pharmacist and seek alternative medicine's for which you were prescribed this one... The information available on this drug, its' use, side effects, fda studies and so on are too long to repeat... If you are not feeling right or have already taken this medicine and are experiencing severe side effects, get medical help immed... call md asap to go over the med regimen... blaze22
Oxaprozin is a nonsteroidal anti inflammatory thay is primarily metabolized by the liver. The following is what the literature says about hepatic dosage adjustment:
Approximately 95% of Oxaprozin is metabolized by the liver. However, patients with well compensated cirrhosis do not require reduced doses of Oxaprozin as compared to patients with normal hepatic function. Nevertheless, caution should be observed in patients with severe hepatic dysfunction.
You may have to start at a lower dosage and be monitored more closely depending on your liver function status.
Hope this helped,
