I have had liver problems since having hepatitis in my twenties. I am a senior citizen. I have never been able to take the statin drugs because they make my condition worse (nausea, etc.) I have been diagnosed with "fatty liver." Just two months ago since my cholesterol was not good my doctor told me to try a drug named Zetia claiming it works differently. After being on it about six weeks I began to get quite nauseous after eating. I have been successful in losing about 15 pounds on weight watchers and have gotten my blood pressure down a lot. I quit taking Zetia but since have had nausea problems and my blood pressure went up again! I was told this could not be from Zetia. The ads for Zetia said that you should not take this with liver problems but both my doctor and a liver specialist said it was okay. Has anyone ever experienced any bad effects from Zetia if they had liver problems in the past? After I tried the statins I was nauseous for awhile and then settled down. I'm hoping this will happen again.Reply Follow This Thread Stop Following This Thread Flag this Discussion
