  • Is it bad to take levorphanol tartrate if i have liver damage caused by hep c
    I am receiving treatment from the V.A. in Los Angeles, Ca..

    Last summer the va started to hint at forcing me to be seen by there pain mngt. team. Also I was to start treatment for my hep c, it was just becomming active. I knew that the interferon would be just a little stressful for aprox; one year so I offered to do there (the pain clinic) plan with a happy heart just after my liver stuff was done. So I went to LA only to find that the liver lab spent just 2 minutes with me to tell me that since I'VE have to wait a new liver drug to be approved I must do the pain clinic. So in six weeks I went from 200mg (5x4 per day) of methidone to 40mg (1 tab x 4 per day), and in just one week it was Oxycodone 40mg x 4 per day to 0. And all of this isij happening my liver gets more serroscised.
  • Spiriva headache. will the headaches subside?
    I have been using Spiriva for almost 3 weeks now and have just started waking up with severe headaches. I am wondering if these will subside or do I need to find another medication? Do all of these types of inhalers for COPD cause headaches? The SPiriva is actually stating to help with the COPD but I can't function with these headaches.
  • Are there reports of advair diskus 250/50 causing hepatitis c
    I have been taking Advair Diskus 250/50 for 8 years and was diagnosed with Hepatitis c 2 and a half years.
  • Does anyone have any advice for someone going through suboxone withdrawal that has hepatitis c?
    My husband is going through Suboxone withdrawal right now. I read that the virus replicates during withdrawal because of the stress that the immune system is under. Does anyone have any experience with this, or any advice? I want to make this as easy and safe an experience as possible. Thank you!
  • Hepatotoxicity of oxycodone hcl over time

  • have been hoarse with intermittent sore throat and dry cough since about 1/2 way through 24 weeks of therapy to cure hep c


  • From this study (4 months ago):

  • After treatment with telaprivir for 12 wqeeks, and ribavirin for 24 weeks I lost the ability to see distances. I do not recall having difficulty before treatment, but it is quite noticiable now, and I reqire glasses - vision is 20/50 in both eyes. Could this be related to treatment, or the result of aging process?


  • From this study (4 months ago):
