Most likely never: If you received treatment for hepatitis c, which lasts for many months, and complete it, the most important thing to measure is the viral titer. This will determine if your treatment was successful or not. Antibodies are your bodies reaction to the infection, and may persist for a lifetime.

Possible: Almost any medication can cause liver problems if a person has sensitivity to its ingredients. Hepatotoxicity is associated with fluconazole, more so if a person also consumes alcohol at the same time.

The Purple Pill: It is one of the most widely prescribed medication in the world. It belongs to a class of medications called ppi's (proton pump inhibitors). It works by inhibiting proton pumps, a type of cells that produces acid, in a persons stomach. It is used to treat acid reflux, ulcers, h.Pylori bacteria infection, and is frequently used to treat stomach aches. It is very safe when used as prescribed.
