Copaxone and elevated liver enzymes

Post by mccpm » Sat Jun 29, 2013 7:48 pm

Has anyone had elevated liver enzymes associated with copaxone use?

ive been on the regular 1 a day copaxone routine for about 2 months now. a routine blood test from my general doc showed elevated liver enzymes which i have never had before. this what i take daily:
10,000 mgs of fish oils
4,000 ius of vit d3
copaxone
pantaprazole 40 mgs for acid reflux

i was sent to a liver specialist and he wants me to cut out the fish oils then we will try eliminating vit d. i know drug interactions are complkcated but i have to wonder if this could be related to the presciption drugs versus the fish oils. i was doing the exact same routine back in april 2012 minus the copaxone and had a normal bloodowrk back in april 2012.

please let me know if anyone else has had this issue. it looks like most of the liver enzyme issues ive found on this site are rebif related.

thanks1

3000 mg Fish oils plus copaxone raised my liver enzymes too. Copaxone alone didn't

Update on this post. Elevated liver enzymes went away after a few months.. I cut the fish oils down to 6000 mgs a day. Switching to Tysabri now because of a new lesion found on my neck although brain was stabilized during Copax treatment.
