Extacy+Acute Hep B
Jun 17, 2003

Could someone get Acute Hepatitis B from taking of Extacy Pills? I know they cause liver damage, but I don't think you can get Hep B from taking that drug. Hep B is mainly sexually contracted is it not?

Response from Dr. Dieterich

Ectasy can cause liver toxicity but hepatitis B is a sexually or blood-transmitted disease.Certainly, though sexually transmitted diseases are more common in people who use recreational drugs. Be safe! DTD

I have a question, Dr. Dieterich
Boyfriend hep c pos and me neg. we want kids?
