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.
