User avatar Hello Phill,
Please check this our antidepressants/mao_inhibitors/aurorix.htm" class="postlink">Aurorix page for details of possible side effects. Of note that this drug is not FDA approved and therefor not available in the U.S. Usually the FDA approval requirements are very strict and drugs take longer to approve in the US than in Australia. Its a relatively new drug and not all its side effects are known.
One important point regarding your symptoms is it could be liver pain, kidney pain or simply muscle pain. This drug is known to raise the liver enzymes. According to the manufacturing company there have been no reports of clinical consequences due to the raised enzyme level. Liver enzymes are raised in various types of liver injury.

Do not stop this drug suddenly. Rather contact your doctor and get a liver profile lab test to check your liver enzymes. A physical examination of your liver is very important.

Best regards.
