Chronic illness caused by P-450 mutations and RX drugs?

I'm not sure I'm in the right place for this question so if you read this and it's way off...just ignore me. lol. I have genetic mutations P-450 family. My question is, if I were to have been given hard core meds for 5 to 10 years that my body could not metabolize correctly...could this cause PN? GERD? Gastroparisis? Incontinence?(and a whole slew of other things equally as horrible)

Thank you for asking at Ehealth forum!

I read your question and i understand your concern. With cytochrome p450 deficiency , there are many medications that would interact by either staying longer or staying less as some induce it and others inhibit it. Gastroparesis , GERD etc may be a possibility of a drug if stayed longer than usual but other local triggers can be key cause for that too and should be considered first.

I hope it helps. Stay in touch with your healthcare provider for further guidance as our answers are just for education and counselling purposes and cannot be an alternative to actual visit to a doctor.
Take care
