High liver enzymes: Depends on what is the cause of the elevated liver enzymes . Continue to see your doctor until the cause is determined and continue to follow his advice to keep yourself safe.

Probably not: Your liver enzymes should be rechecked in a couple of months or so. If they are normal, you can probably drink in moderation, especially if you don't take any more acetaminophen.
