does viagra affect your lft results

Hi
I have had to have a few liver function test and the results are a little high (89 was the last one), i havnt had a drink since the 3rd January and the test was done on the 21st Feb. I do take generic Viagra, someone told me that that viagra can raise the ALT in a LFT. Can anyone confirm whether this is correct or not?
Many Thanks

Abnormal liver tests are cited as a rare or very uncommon side affect of Viagra (sildenafil).

"....The following events occurred in <2% of patients in controlled clinical trials; a causal relationship to Viagra is uncertain....."

"....liver function tests abnormal...."

See:  http://www.drugs.com/sfx/viagra-side-effects.html


"Common side effects in this group include diarrhea and upset stomach.
Less common cases include vomiting, gastritis, dry mouth, bleeding in the rectum, abdominal pain, difficulty in swallowing, irritation, or swelling of the esophagus (happens mostly to men who have idiopathic achalasia), atypical liver function tests, viral infection of the mouth, inflammation of the colon, periodontal disease, and infection of the tongue."

See: http://www.sildenafilsideeffects.com/viagra-vs-digestive-system/


Apparently it is possible that Viagra is responsible for your elevated ALT.

Good luck,
Mike
