with decompensated ascites and esophageal varices
is not a good sign. You are already in an advanced stage of chronic liver disease
. Patient with chronic liver disease sometimes tend to have an altered sleep pattern. You must continue lactulose
as prescribed and I would also add another medication are Rifaximin to your existing meds. Discuss this option with your doctor.
A piece of personal advice, start thinking about liver transplant
, dont go around looking of quick fixes and herbal solutions because they dont work and make the liver condition worse. Liver transplant is the only solution at really works, trust me. I am not trying to scare you but I just want to give a reality check on the prognosis.
