Hep A and Atripla

Nov 14, 2009

I've started taking atripla in September 2008. In october 2008 I developed jaundice and it turned out I had hep A. Liver enzimes started stabilizing quite quickly, but then improvement was much slower. In August 2009 I started feeling the drowsiness I ahd when I started the drugs for a couple of weeks and lft were high alt 100 and ast 160 ggt 300 and alp 200. In october 2009 alt 53 ast 93 ggt 300 and alp 200 again. My LFT were normal before treatment and I rarely touch alcohol and not taking other drugs. Could this still be related with the hep A or should I be starting to look for other causes? Thanks for your help.

Response from Dr. Holodniy

I think you need to look for other causes.

Did I make a huge mistake?
PCR results?
