Is Nucynta (tapentadol) safe to take with Harvoni. I have an F 2, A1/2 fibrosis liver score? I have 2 herniated discs and can't take ASA, Tylenol, or NSAID.

In august my pt in blood was 8.7 in feb it was 10.1 is this low if so what could cause it? I have fatty liver and asd and an asa could this be bad?

8.7 & 10.1 - Anemia?: The values you quote are c/w Hemoglobin numbers; what do you mean by "pt". Be aware: numbers without units have no meaning. Fatty liver is a result of too much carbohydrate & total food intake, especially Fructose, 85% of which liver promptly coverts to triglyceride fat after absorption. ASA ↓es platelet function (not numbers) & irritates stomach+small intestines, thus ↑es bleeding/anemia. ...Read more

How long does aspirin and tylenol (acetaminophen) stay in ur system? For example usually it says take every 6 hours so does that mean after that it's gone within?

Depends on dose: A one-time dose is normally gone within that time frame. However, regular use of medications create a "steady state" baseline which takes longer to be metabolized. How long depends on your metabolism. For example, kidney or liver disease cause drugs to not be cleared as effectively, and the medication can build up in your system. Also, effects of Aspirin on platelets can last up to a week. ...Read more
