Bystolic (nebivolol): www.epocrates.com suggests monitoring lfts if you take bystolic (nebivolol) but there's no mention of this for either synthroid or omeprazole. With that said, non-alcoholic fatty liver is a consequence of being overweight/obese so if that describes you, that would be the better choice (rather than stopping bystolic (nebivolol)) since losing weight could then lower your blood pressure, too. Chat w/your prescribing doc.
