Can Non-alcoholic fatty liver disease (no inflammation) speed up your metabolism and cause you to poorly absorb antidepressant medication?

In brief: Fatty liver

The absorption and metabolism of antidepressants are totally different systems.
It depends on the antidepressant as well as any other drugs you may be taking at the same time. However, in general fatty liver disease will slowly metabolize most antidepressants, thereby inc blood levels.
