James on Jan, 31, 2014:
I am a 53 years old medical doctor. I was prescribed Alfuzocin 10 mg by my uro-genital surgeon for benign prostatic hyperplasia. Four months after taking the drug I started developing generalised urticarial and angioedema especially on the eyelids and lips.
My physician suspected some bacterial endotoxin as a cause and put me on a one month course of anti-histaminics. Two weeks iinto the course I realised that this was insane. The new drug must be he cause [I am also on anti diabetics and anti-hypertensives for 8 years]. I stopped the antihistaminic and Alfusosin a week ago and I haven't had a recurrence of urticarial, although I still get itchy in my legs and arms once in a while. I just wanted to share the experience with other readers.
From this study (2 months ago):
elevated alk phos, alt, ast & bilirubin. After removing micafungin 7 days ago and flagyl 3 days ago numbers starting to go down. Alk phos still increased slightly. Are drugs the cause?
