Nizoral Hepatotoxicity (Liver Damage)

nizoral-liver-damage-failure-lawsuitNizoral side effects are very serious. Nizoral can cause serious hepatotxocity, or liver injury, which may result in liver transplant or even death. The FDA has revised its Boxed Warning for Nizoral, adding a strong recommendation against its use in patients with known liver disease. The FDA has also included new recommendations for medical professionals’ assessment and monitoring of patients for liver toxicity. Liver damage, also known as hepatotoxicity, has occurred in people taking high doses of Nizoral for short time periods and also in those taking low doses of Nizoral for long periods of time. In some cases, patients had no clear risk factors for liver disease that existed prior to Nizoral treatment. Liver damage may be reversible upon stopping Nizoral, but reversal is not possible in every case.

Nizoral And Adrenal Gland Problems

Nizoral may also cause adrenal insufficiency by decreasing the body’s ability to produce a certain kind of hormone called corticosteroids. These hormones are produced by the adrenal glands, located on top of each kidney. If you are currently taking Nizoral, your doctor should closely monitor your adrenal gland function.
