Been on bystolic (nebivolol) for 2 weeks. My liver enzymes (ast & alt) are both always under 20. Got blood work yesterday & my enzymes were 32 & 45. Is it the med?
Drug Effect. Your assessment is correct., bysyolic is associated with elevations of ast & alt in addition to other lab abnormalities . Generally, this does not necessitate stopping the drug but there are individual variations. Consult with the prescriber of this medication for your specific concerns.
I'm on bystolic (nebivolol). Synthroid and omeorazole daily. I got blood work and my liver enzymes were in range but still higher than normal. Ast-32 and alt- 42. Is it one of my meds?
Bystolic (nebivolol) www.epocrates.com suggests monitoring lfts if you take bystolic (nebivolol) but there's no mention of this for either synthroid or omeprazole. With that said, non-alcoholic fatty liver is a consequence of being overweight/obese so if that describes you, that would be the better choice (rather than stopping bystolic (nebivolol)) since losing weight could then lower your blood pressure, too.
