Toxicity will be worse so it depends on the functions of the liver and also there are many factors there may be individual factor there may be idiosyncrasy and also hepatotoxicity may be aggravated in certain type of drug interactions so let’s start what drug drugs causes hepatotoxicity analysis painkiller and non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs analgesic

Acetaminophen also called paracetamol also called tylenol this is a drug if it is taking to a big dose or for many days then it may cause hepatotoxicity along with other toxicities aspirin may lead to race syndrome specially in children with viral disease if they get experienced then there may be pheton feminine hepatitis and cerebral edema so it may lead to

Hepatic encephalopathy that may be fatal so in case of fever it is better to take acetaminophen not to take aspirin and spin is if a spin is given to a patient who has viral infection then there is chance to get raised syndrome special in children anti-rheumatic drug all of this drug they they modify the disease process and this drug may lead to liver toxicity

Liver damage okay then muscle relaxant like metaxalone these are needing denturon that may lead to hepatotoxicity any of this drug drug used in heart disease in a inaudible a drug used for positive inotropic action on the heart boson ton endothelial receptor antagonist these drugs are potential hepatotoxic drugs anti-diabetic drugs like puberty tarjan and rosie

Lee darjeel these are insulin sensitizer and oral hypoglycemic drug acura ecoboost and tall alpha glucosidase inhibitor and hypoglycemic drug so all of them are then lead to liver toxicity liver damage to certain percentage of population okay the anti-tb drug likely from basin isoniazide also called i n h iso nicotinic acid hydrazide pyrogenamide these all are

Potential hepatotoxic drug and this is very much notorious to cause hepatotoxicity bioregina might reformation induces the hepatic enzyme so it may interact with other drug and that way it may also damage the liver anti-hyperlipidemic drug all the statin hng coenzyme inhibitor and niacin they they to their these are potential hepatotoxic drugs anti-fungal drug

To the liver in certain situation doctors used to prescribe multiple medication like in case of tuberculosis we need multiple drug therapy for at least six months for leprosy multiple drug therapy for at least three years so when you get multiple drugs all of them are metabolized to the liver so there is more chance to get liver damage and hepatotoxicity so this

Patient and all other patients who are taking potentially hepatotoxic drug should be under doctor surveillance and so they need periodic hepatic function test that means liver function test that is done by studying the enzyme study and also by clinical examination erythromycin interact with furosemide this is a diuretic and fluid ourselves it is an anti-cancer

Drug so this this and this and that this all combination will aggravate liver damage damage combination of alcohol and acetaminophen especially in the chronic alcoholic person he if you take acetaminophen apparently it is a harmless medication but it may damage the liver this is the tylenol or paracetamol is it an aphan interact with beta blocker this is there

Is an anti-hypertensive drug or barbiturate or anti-tb drug ins iso nicotinic acid hydrazide or isoniazide sulfin pyrogene which is used in case of gout phenytoin used in case of epilepsy so interaction of two or more of this drug may aggravate liver damage may cause liver failure combustion of alcohol and carbon tetrachloride certainly that will lead to liver
