Hep. C and Meds.
May 6, 2007

I am currently not taking any medication for Hep. C but I take pain medication for back pain and other pains. I would like to know what is the best pain medication to take that won't damage the liver.

Response from Dr. McGovern

This will need to be discussed with your physician since it is also important to weigh your kidney function in this decision. Some medications have more of an effect on the liver and some on the kidney.
