Had anyone with APML not been able to take ATRA due to elevated liver funtions? What were your other options?

I had trouble with Atra elevating my liver functions....oh my goodness that was NOT a pleasant experience in that everything kinda went haywire and I itched from head to toe (literally!). My doctor took me off of it for a time...got the liver functions back to normal and then started me off real slow after things looked okay. Hope this helps!

My 15 yr old daughter is taking ATRA as part of her induction therapy. She's taking a lot of other stuff too. She's suffering from headaches and nausea. What can you tell me about APL?

I take Atra as well, my doctor has recently reduced the time i will be taking due to headaches which cause spinal fluid build up in my brain. I hate taking Atra, it screws with me alot, it is very good to take though, it will help out a lot!
