Acute intermittent porphyria

Healthcare/Doctors

If I have acute intermittent porphyria, what should my doctor know about managing the disease?

Your doctor should keep an eye on your kidney and liver function if you have acute intermittent porphyria, especially if you are over 50 years old. They should also know that you need to avoid certain prescription drugs, such as barbiturates, sulfa-containing antibiotics, some antiepileptic drugs, progestagens, and synthetic estrogens.
