Hi, everyone, I am visiting from the Crohn's forum. My problems are seeming to be more stomach related than Crohn's at the moment, so thought I would look for help here also. My GI has had me on Librax prn. I am currently on a clinical trial for Crohn's Disease and the med was helping with the stomach pain. Recently, though, it has been hurting more and more. I was up to the max of 8 pills a day on the Librax. If I ate, my stomach had what I call spasms and if I didn't eat for a couple of hours, my stomach had spasms. Librax really helped the pain.
Then, I started getting dizzy, having blurred vision, a fever, sore throat, etc. so I went to a doctor and he guessed that it was an upper respiratory infection, but could not explain the dizziness. He admitted to not knowing about my meds and if any of them could cause this. So, I went online and found that all of my symptoms were side effects of Librax. GI said to stop it for a few days and then try one dose to see how that went. Amazing, my stomach has been okay until today (day 6). I thought I would die without the meds for a few days but it has done very well. Anyway, I'm going to try to take as little as possible until I have some more blood work done on Monday (think Librax may also be the reason for elevated liver enzymes for the past year) and until my endoscopy next Thursday. Is anyone else here on Librax and, if so, have you had any problems like mine? Thanks for the input.
