Congratulations on your baby! Usually liver enzymes return to normal within a couple weeks of stopping the medication, if that is the cause. If the enzymes remain elevated your doctor will search for other causes of elevated liver enzymes.

Yes, Excedrin contains acetaminophen and having your liver enzymes rechecked while not taking any should answer the question. If liver enzymes remain high workup for a possible cause should continue.
