In brief: Stop medication!

Liver is a pretty resilient organ.
You need to be followed closely by your family physician who will monitor your liver function via regular blood tests. It's probably a good idea to be followed closely by your gastroenterologist, if not a hepatologist (liver specialist), too. But the key is to stop the offending agent. And no Acetaminophen (tylenol), which is found in many products and no alcohol.
