Yes, I have RA and have been on Cimzia and Advil and for the first time in 4 years of taking biologics my liver enzymes are slightly elevated. I have taken three tests now in the last 2 months and they are still elevated... I do not drink much at all. I used to eat one to two salads a day but precisely 2 months ago I got sick of the salads and started eating more carbs... I hate the idea of stopping the Cimzia and really am dissapointed that I cannot start the Methotrexate until my liver enzymes get under control. (I want to stay in remission and keep working full-time and have a normal life and the idea of combination therapy was my hope and goal.) Any advice for improving these numbers besides what my Rheumy recommended which was no more Advil and no drinking at all (which again is a moot point for me, I'm not much of a drinker at all.)

I just took 2 metopimazine (in France) for nausea and vomiting but I have a really bad headache too and want to take some advil as well. Is that alright?

doctor1 MD

Thanks for the query

Yes u can take advil but a safer choice would be to take paracetamol 650mg.
There wont be a drug reaction if that is what u want to know.
With advil u might develop gastritis

I am a 38 year old male weighing 112lbs. i recently ran a half marathon, was taking advil for 3 weeks for a sore knee and had my physical/blood two days after the race. My LFT was: ALT 141 and AST 80. No alcohol consumption for 9 weeks prior. Could the increase in Liver Function be a result of the Advil and the 13.1 mile race that participated in two days prior to the annual physical? Blood pressure 130/78.

Hello! Thank you for your question! Regarding your concern I would explain that transaminases (ALT & AST) increase in your situation reflects primarily a skeletal muscle injury. These enzymes (ALT & AST) though they are considered for evaluation of liver status, they do exist as well in almost...

Hi, I came down with severe shingles on April 20th on the upper right hand side of my body.. Most of the rash is starting to dry up. The Dr. prescribed the medication Apo-Valacyclovir on Monday the 21st. I have not had much pain, the odd jabbing shots up into my head. I have been taking Tylenol and Advil. Today the part of my body where the rash is has been burning so have applied cold presses. Tonight I have more pain on my right side, I am wondering if this is normal.
