Taking 4 mg alprazolam for 10 years. I have a elevated liver count and drs. Are attempting to diagnose. Wonder how long it will take to be out of body?

Taking 4 mg alprazolam for 10 years. I have a elevated liver count and drs. Are attempting to diagnose. Wonder how long it will take to be out of body?

Alprazolam: Please do not stop Alprazolam suddenly. It is a habituating drug and you will experience withdrawal -- possibly including seizures. You have been on a relatively high dose for a long time, and tapering over time will be necessary. Please work with your physicians on this, rather than trying to get it out of your body by stopping it yourself. Best wishes. ...Read more

I feel heat in my body like in my chest, liver, stomach. Which diets or drinks should I take to minimize it or what else?

Not sure: I do not understand the medication kanadex. The feeling of heat in your body does not indicate anything in the absence of fever. If you are otherwise healthy, sleep well, good appetite, active and able to work, it is unlikely that further evaluation would be productive. Seeing a doctor would sort out these feelings you have and doing some tests would indicate if there is something to do ...Read more

My total cholesterol is 242, my triglycerides is 535, if I take statin iam having severe body pain, iam also having fatty liver, can I take niacin.

Complicated.: Can take Niacin or fenofibrate, but may not need to. Single trig value may mis-represent the average trig value. Could be result of other metabolic abnormality. Measure trig and sugar on several occasions including non fasting samples. If in 1000 range will require treatment. If lower maybe not. Try another statin. Your LDL is probably 100. If no coronary artery disease or stroke 100 is fine. ...Read more

Days the liver takes to detox?

Days the liver takes to detox?

No such thing: Detox from what? The liver is a natural factory that packages and gets rid of a variety of chemicals, some of which are toxins, others are totally harmless. I am not a believer in this idea that our bodies are chock fulla toxins we put in, and that fasts, enemas, cleanses and a variety of herbs "detoxifies" (removes the toxins). There is virtually no scientific evidence for any of this. ...Read more
