10 medications that can damage your liver


"The liver plays a crucial role in keeping the body’s systems balanced and maintained. Liver failure is especially frightening considering there is no way to keep the body operating if liver function is absent.

For instance, if the kidneys fail, dialysis can be used to keep the patient alive. If the lungs fail, a special ventilator can force the lungs to operate. However, nothing can stand in the place of the liver.

Medications are a popular cause of liver damage. While there are close to 1,000 medicines, drugs, and herbs that can injure the liver, ten in particular pose a significant threat. Each year, two thousand people experience liver failure in the United States. Around half of these situations are the direct result of medications."
