    Thanks Ellie that's put me at ease. I did read re x 5 and x3 etc but couldn't work out like the way you put it. So glad I asked as it really puts my mind at rest.

    I have researched re ways to help etc and I've started taking a few health meds x

    Shelly, there's quite a big tolerance of raised ALT levels before stopping Riluzole is advised/ordered.

    For those without prior liver impairment, it's 5x normal upper limit of normal ALT range, or 3x if prior liver impairment.

    My own ALT levels were slightly raised for a good while, but were well within tolerance - even now they're occasionally raised.

    You could ask the doctor about supplements to 'support' your liver and/or do some research. xx

    started a topic Riluzole

    Riluzole

    Hi all.

    Riluzole can cause liver serum elevation. I have been on it since May this year. By September liver ALT now abnormal but only slightly.

    Due next blood test in a weeks time.

    What I wanted to ask is of those members that had to stop taking Riluzole, what was their liver alt levels?

    I would like to carry on taking it as I get on well with it. However I read that it does affect liver damage more in females. I've also read that it can cause liver serums to rise but after a few months it stabilises.

    Would like to hear from those who had to cease taking it please.
Working...
