Having GERD, oesophagitis and hiatal hernia. Taking nexium, motilium, ganatone. Blood test shows high bilirubin. Medicines are the cause?

Good afternoon Dr.

I am 47 yrs old Male and I am having GERD, Oesophagits and hiatal hernia. Dr. has advice me to take a medine of Nexium 40mg, motilium 10mg and Ganatone 150mg. If I am taking this medication for a long time what will be the cause, since I had my blood test and my bilirubin is high 33.3 but all other test is normal. Due to this GERD I was taking many type medicine during past 15 yrs. This bilirubin is increased because of medication. Expecting a positive response from you.
Thank you so much and pleasant good evening.

Gastroenterologist 's  Response
Hello! Thanks for putting your query in HCM. I am a Gastroenterologist (DM).

The medicine which you are taking which you have mentioned nexium, motilium, and ganaton do not lead to elevation of bilirubin.

Bilirubin of that high much 33.3 requires careful evaluation.
1. Type and fraction of billirubin like direct and indirect values. Along with other liver function tests
2.Ultrasound abdomen to see for the billiary system

Only after these test further can be advised. So get these tests and upload the same

I hope I have answered your query and this will help you. Remain in touch and get-well soon.
