A.
none, all medicines are processed through liver. the liver is the bodys super filter it breaks down all the toxins the body doesn't want/need anymore. my uncle was not only an alcoholic but addicted to pain pills and patches and all opiates and his kidneys and liver threw in the towel and he died...but if you take them as prescribed and stay away from alcoholic beverages you should be fine..just remember you can live with one kidney or get a transfusion but liver is serious business unless you're mickey mantle
