Due to the fact I  taking depakote&effexor. Will detoxing my liver be healthy ?If so what are some healthy safe ways.

No: The liver is needed for life, to break down and remove certain drugs and chemicals that are not needed or are harmful to the body. The liver also does many other crucial duties, such as making proteins, blood clotting factors, bile, etc... All one can do is avoid damaging the liver, and the liver will keep itself as healthy as possible. One should eat healthy foods, but ignore "detox" gimmicks. ...Read more

Get blood test: Liver function can and should be checked periodically by a simple blood test ordered by your doctor. Also, the actual blood level of Depakote and the need for both medicines should be checked periodically. The liver itself is a detoxifier; changing medication or specific medical treatment, if needed, should be advised by your doctor. No home remedy is reliable or recommended. ...Read more

The pill dilemma: We must acknowledge the perspective of individual biology and the issue that some people come from heavy families. Kindness required. That said, if you don't eat it you can't wear it. If you take pills to address the problem you are choosing to accept risks in exchange for choosing to come at the problem this way. There is no free ride, as was revealed in the phen/fen debacle. ...Read more

Effexor (venlafaxine) 225mg hs, Neurontin 200mg bid, lisinopril 5mg ac, Prilosec 20mg ac, hydroxyzine 50mg hs, ativan .5 mg prn, too many rx's daily- liver damage?

Effexor (venlafaxine) 225mg hs, Neurontin 200mg bid, lisinopril 5mg ac, Prilosec 20mg ac, hydroxyzine 50mg hs, ativan .5 mg prn, too many rx's daily- liver damage?

Probably Not: Especially for someone who is young. Neurontin (gabapentin) doesn't even get metabolized by the liver. That being said, it makes sense to monitor you liver w/regular lab-work & to ask yourself if exercise, nutrition, & meditation can help your symptoms & reduce your pill burden. ...Read more

My LDL is around 275. Age is 35. Suggest me way to reduce LDL without statin drugs. Does liver metabolism contribute in raising ldl.  ?

Careful: Your LDL is very high, the liver is involved in cholesterol metabolism, you should try diet, weight loss and exercise if this fails you need medications. Here are some example of cholesterol rich foods: red meat, butter, eggs, cheese, shellfish, shrimps, caviar and fast food in general. Vegetables, beans, salads, chicken, and fish rich in omega three are better alternatives. ...Read more
