Hi,sorry to bother you all. I have had blood tests as currently being treated by a specialist for chronic sinus infections causing me Bronchitis. Anyway, my blood test showed the ALT as increased, this has never been the case before. Then the specialist looked at my notes and realised that I'd been prescribed Augmentin by my GP for 14 days for the infection. I finished the course 2 weeks ago. She said that it typically causes ALT to rise and that I shouldn't worry. She said she will retest in 3 weeks and she said it should have started coming down by then.
I never would've taken those tablets if I'd have known that would be an effect of them. My specialist is lovely and has been spot on so far with everything for me, but at the back of mind I'm worried about it and now it's starting to make me feel sick. I didn't feel ill before this morning, so it's me worrying, I've had no changes in wee or poo.
Has this happened to anyone else or does anyone know if these kind of fluctuations are common when taking certain meds. I rarely take strong medication.
Thank you in advance everyone.
