I too was prescribed Cylert when I was 12 - 14 (1978- 1980) years old. I am not aware of any liver problems. However to my knowledge I have never actually had any specific liver diagnostics. I am now 53 years old. What are the indications and tests that should be performed to validate or invalidate potential damage from this medication?

I was given the drug Cylert twice in the past.. the first time when I was in 8th grade for not being able to concentrate on anything. and that lasted a year or so and the second time it was given to me was my early 20's for the same reason. I am 53 now and I now have liver problems and mental things that have been ongoing for many years . Could this be related to Cylert?
