  • From this study (1 week ago):

  • My WBC count was 15.6 last week before taking Valtrex, now after finding many cherry angiomas since starting the Valtrex I was taken off the medicine and had more blood tests run. Now my WBC count is 16.1 after being on the medicine for almost a week.

  • From this study (2 weeks ago):

  • I have been struggling with sinusitis for almost 2 years now and they can't stop the dripping my nose from running,down throat to chest, lots of plegm, and have been congested for over a year and half. Since then, have tried me on every sort of antihistimine, Loradine, Zyrtec, Certirizine, and fluticasone spray, which didn't stop running/congestion. Been to ER three times to get on antibiotics since also caused gum disease/gingivitis per Periodontus who states it's underlying medical not dental. Also started taking regular OTC sudafed for congestion, and occasional cough/congestion. Now allergist says my IgG Immoglobins are high and was told that since I have constant bacterial infections. Allergist believes running nose/congestion is from a fungus infection or vasomotor rhinitis and need culture. Am waiting to see ENT. Prior to this last 2 years, my sinus was always controlled and maybe every year to two years, an infection occurred and antibiotics quickly got rid of it, but not this time. I read infections could also cause liver enzymes to rise to and my past blood tests in 2008 shows only had a mild increase in SGPT ALT only. Prior use, I used pain pills, vicodin/codeine/darvocet/, but stay away from then now due to liver enzymes in ALT rising, and only use motrin, sleeping med., cymbalta and occasional fioricet. Had gall bladder infected and removed, and tests show fatty liver and slight kidney lesion, but not enough for them to do anything.

    F, 48, fibromylagia, chronic sinusitis, repeated infections, which believe long-term pain meds cause elevated liver enzymes, went off most, and now because of constant trying of allergy meds, and can't stop running nose, long term infections of bacteria and possibly fungus, so not sure what is causing elevated enzymes.
