Yes, Benadryl (diphenhydramine) is extensively metabolized by the liver. With abuse or overdose of diphenhydramine, liver damage can (and likely will) occur. There are also other side effects such as cardiac collapse. It is best to only take any medication exactly as directed. If you are taking any over the counter medication for an extended period of time, you need to consult with your doctor.

It is known that marijuana has many positive medical uses. However, there are also some down sides. This is why it is so important to do the research. People have to be carefu…l not to jump to one side or the other just because they feel strongly pro or against. In this case, yes, marijuana can interfere with liver function and cause damage. Firstly, it can interfere with how cytochrome P450 enzyme system works. It can interfere with breaking down some substances and medications properly. It can also cause liver damage, disorders, or poisoning. http://www.mayoclinic.org/drugs-supplements/marijuana/safety/hrb-20059701 People with hepatitis C and smoke marijuana can worsen their condition, have increased chance of cirrhosis of the liver and severe fibrosis. http://www.loveyourliver.com.au/loving-your-liver/common-toxins-to-avoid Daily cannabis use is strongly associated with moderate to severe fibrosis (scarring of the liver). http://www.cghjournal.org/article/S1542-3565%2807%2901050-6/abstract
yup. Consumed in large quantities over a a period of decades, alcohol can damage the liver. Consumed in moderation, beer contributes to good health and greater longevity than …abstaining.
Like most other chemicals, it is processed in the liver. Taking small doses as an otherwise healthy individual shouldn't damage the liver but abusing the drug, lik…e any other, can have adverse effects.
No it does not. Tylenol damages the liver, so many oxycodone preparations WILL damage the liver. For example, percocets are a combo of oxycodone and Tylenol. Those can cause l…iver damage because of the Tylenol. But drugs that are single-entity opiods and have no Tylenol (like Oxycontin or Roxicodone) do not damage the liver. It is just the Tylenol to be honest.
yes it does good luck with the conebone http://www.sciencedirect.com/science?_ob=ArticleURL&_udi=B6T1J-3S7XN5W-8&_user=10&_rdoc=1&_fmt=&_orig=search&_sort=d&_docanchor…=&view=c&_searchStrId=960954330&_rerunOrigin=google&_acct=C000050221&_version=1&_urlVersion=0&_userid=10&md5=80f3dcece75e127071335b645f14b8e8
Absolutely, especially if they contain opiates, asprin, acietomenophen(tylenol), ibuprofen or any other NSAID and if you take more than you are prescribed or combine them with… alcohol. If you are asking about street drugs like heroin, those that don't overdose typically die of hepatitis C which is contracted after damage caused by their use. Ignorance abounds. HepC is not contracted after 'damage caused by drug abuse', it's a virus which CAN be contracted by sharing dirty (as in virus-infected) needles or being directly exposed to infected blood. You can shoot up 5 times a day and never get HepC as long as you use a new syringe each time. He's probably thinking about cirrhosis, which is far more likely to be caused by excessive drinking than anything else, and is not contagious. But to answer the original question--YES. ANY DRUG CAN CAUSE LIVER DAMAGE, including alcohol, because your liver is the body's toxic waste disposal machine. ALL the bad stuff we ingest, inhale, inject, or absorb has to be metabolized by the liver, so keep that in mind whenever you deliberately choose to poison yourself.
yes, most definitely. Not all on it will get liver damage, but my son did. He went to the doctor's to find out why he got very sick with only 1 alcoholic drink (beer), he was …also tired, and had been gaining weight. After testing, they found he has NASH. A non- alcoholic hepatitis liver disease . They (medical institutes ) don't have enough information, studies are (hopefully) in progress. The liver is enlarged and fatty, with liver enzymes elevated. First is to change your diet, low fat, lower potions, and exercise. This disease can progress fast, slow, and "may" be reversed. Now, I'll let my son know about the very small dose of Lexapro he has been on for 8 years is a good reason now to go off. Now I will research what anti depressant might be more suitable. Any suggestions? from a concerned, most loving mom .... hope this is of help to others.
No, the opposite. Caffeine reduces the incidence of developing liver disease. Originally, this observance was only statistical, and though the answer as to "why" caffeine lowe…rs the risk of disease of the liver isn't totally known, it is thought to be because for some reason it eliminates oxidative stress upon the organ.
yes absolutly if u take to many of them
The main two causes of liver damage are alcoholism and hepatitis. If you have alcoholic liver damage you may have some vague symptoms such as:feeling some pain in the liver (…under the lower right hand side of your ribs)having a general feeling of poor health and fatigueloss of appetitea sick, nauseous feeling, especially in the mornings and often accompanied by diarrhea. Either of the two main causes can result in the above and these other specific symptoms. If you have any of the preceding or following symptoms, you should talk to your doctor at once. yellow eyes or, in more severe cases, yellow skin (jaundice)vomiting blooddark black, tarry, stoolssignificant weight lossperiods of confusion or poor memory
No, but it's certainly the most common cause. no. the liver is the bodies waste treatment organ. Any harmful material put into the body will pass through the liver before be…ing released. Thus there are any number of things that can cause liver failure. There are even forms of cancer that can.
Think of your liver as the organ that makes bad things turn good. Have you ever seen the cartoons where the XXX is written on the side of bottles of alcohol, suggesting it is …poison? Well it is, your liver helps turn poisons into substances that will not harm your body. Anything can technically harm your liver, but main things consist of AlcoholDrugsChemicals (can be found in foods)
Not been many studies on (recreational use of this drug). You may have caused damage to your liver and or heart. but, if you have not touched this drug since, and it DOES NO…T contain "acetaminophen" or something similar (NSAIDS) < example - You should be ok. if you think you have a problem or seem to be abusing it you probably do. in that case you are lucky because you're dependence on this drug is mostly mentally addicting. The worst withdrawal would be dizziness, headache, and feeling of "happiness" increased enjoyment of food, and finally you should feel normal again. AFTER THAT YOU WILL PROBABLY WANT TO DO THE DRUG AGAIN. thats the mental "addiction" or whatever the eff you wanna call it. Simply ignore this, and move on with your life. If you experience PAIN of the heart the next couple days, as long as its minor, ignore it. if it persists or GETS WORSE see a doc!. as for your liver, if you damaged that you most likely won't notice this till much later in your life. Take care of it then. As for now, Move on. DO NOT think of these problems and get this mental thing in your head that you caused "DAMAGE" to your body, that will make you paranoid. Most all "Drugs" will have to be filterd out by your LIVER all drugs are Poison to your liver, and OD'ING on Diphenhydramine AKA Benadryl is ruff on your liver. But my bet is your liver made it fine, it filterd that poison like a boss. You only get one LIVER! treat it how you like, i'm not here to judge just help best i can. Hope you choose to stay clean, or smoke some good ol pot! (on the weekends?) you will enjoy your life. If this was a suicide attempt, then MOVE FORWARD, Don't dwell on it, Brush it off, and go enjoy your life. LAST FACTS TO ME KNOWLEDGE. IF YOU HAD NO "tolerance" to Benadryl / DIPH. then these are my guesses. IF YOU HAD 100 - 300 MG of this drug - **you most likely had audio hallucinations minor visual hallucinations and minor to moderate paranoia** IF YOU HAD 300 - 500 MG of this drug - **you most likely had strong audio hallucinations moderate visual hallucinations and to moderate paranoia** IF YOU HAD 500 - 800 MG of this drug - **you had audio hallucinations strong visual (most likely - Rats, mice, squirrels, fading in and out of reality, CRAZY thoughts, if you kept fighting the sedation you would see people, talk to people (loved ones) that aren't there, then snap back and say oh s*t lol, and most likely see bugs on the walls ect. and to moderate paranoia to severe** IF YOU HAD 800 - 1200 MG of this drug - **most likely have severe POUNDING HEART, loss of control, muscle moments lost, walking nearly imposable, you will see things, hear things, you wont have control, you will look LIKE YOUR GOING TO DIE do not let anyone see you, if you fall asleep you will wake up seeing things that you fear, again RATS, MICE, ANIMALS, SPIDERS, blah blah blah... anymore then that.... and you probably won't ever be the same, or you will have some heart problems and again maybe liver problems later on 20, 30 years from now. THIS IS IF YOU DO NOT HAVE NO tolerance to the drug. All in all, its a drug thats on the dark side, brings fears out, makes you feel sick / druk, dull, crappy,. Infact, from my use, the best part is when it finally ends! PEACE. Hope i helped=)
The main two causes of liver damage are alcoholism and hepatitis.
The liver is the filter of the body so basically anything that is harmful to it if you're talking wear and tear. However, if you're talking about actual damage, not just overw…orking it, alcohol is by far the worst. most substances need permission to enter into your cells and the few that can pass straight in are all good. all except for Ethanol, which is the key element in alcohol. It passes straight into the cells of anything it touches and basically does as much damage as it can and since your body doesn't want it, it sends it to the liver to get rid of it. That's where all of the damage is done. Fun Fact: getting drunk is fun because the ethanol passes into your brain cells and while the cells are dying, they release a toxic gas into your head. That's what gives you that loopy feeling.
