In brief: Rare

Transient liver test elevations occur in about 1% of patients using Viekirax.
They usually start within the first four weeks of taking the medicine, and usually only last for about two weeks. The liver numbers should eventually return to normal. They are usually asymptomatic. It is important for your doctor to follow those numbers to be sure that they returned to normal. Good luck.
