Topic: Question about liver function and cough
If anyone knows anything about this, thank you for responding. In the last month or so when Charlie can't sleep and he needs to take a generic Ambien, he sleeps through the night and most of the next day. If the liver is not functioning as well, do medicines like Ambien or Ativan have a longer effect? I don't know if I'm asking this quite right, but it's almost like he's taken 2 or 3 Ambien for the way he gets knocked out when he takes just 1 now. This is something new and I would like to know if anyone else has experienced this. Didn't know if it has something to do with the liver not working as well and not processing medicines the same...
Also, he's had a horrendous cough for a while. I guess we all think mets to the lung. I'm calling his oncologist about his cough tomorrow. Any other ideas about a non-productive cough? Thank you all so much. My best to everyone.
