Question: future liver damage
|kenmetz - Sun Jan 18, 2004 12:37 pm||
I have to take neurontin the rest of my life. I am 62. What can I do to prevent liver damage?

I havent heard that Neurontin has been commonly associated with any form of liver damage. More commonly it can cause abnormal increase in liver enzyme tests, but this happens as a result of some chemical reaction that does not harm the liver. On rare occaisions (<1% of patients Neurontin has been associated with hepatitis and jaundice).
If you have any other info please share it with us. Otherwise I wouldnt worry about it.
