You are correct that liver problems are risk with this regimen. Your physician needs to be certain that you are followed closely and correctly. Your own responsibility is to refrain from alcohol, and be certain no additional medicines you take do not worsen this risk. If you are concerned you need to discuss this with your physician. There are other therapy choices available.
