 Duract Concerns  [posted 11/24/98]
Question: My doctor prescribed Duract (60 pills + refill) for a back injury. I only took these pills for about a month. This has been about 6 months ago. My question is, with the drug Duract being pulled from the shelf and the warning that it should be used no longer than 10 days unless the doctor has you on liver enzyme checks. My doctor never mentioned anything to me and I am worried. What should I do? 

Answer: This problem came to light after many patients for many months. Check your liver functions, but, you probably have nothing to be concerned about. An uncommon;but, serious problem.
