    Exciting News for WebMD Members!

    We've been busy behind the scenes building new message boards for you. You'll have new and easier ways to find messages, connect with others, and share your stories.

    And, this will all be available on your smartphone or other mobile device!

    What Do You Need to Do?

    The message board you're used to will be closing in the coming weeks. While many of your boards will be making the move to our new home, your posts will not. Want to keep a discussion going? Save posts you want to continue (this includes your member profile story), so that you can re-post them in the new message boards.

    I have been taking Cymbalta, Lyrica and Dilantin the last several months for Trigeminal Neuralgia that's been out of control. I also have hepatitis C. My docs office called a week ago and said that my liver enzymes were up the last two labs. They want me to test again the end of the month. Should I even be taking those drugs with hep c?

    Typically, you may remain on the above medications so long as your liver enzymes do not elevate above 3X the normal level, even if you have HCV.
