Brief Answer: At present you don't need any medicines. Detailed Answer: Hello XXXXXXX XXXXX Thanks for writing to XXXXXXX You don't need any medicines at present. Firstly,complete liver function test should be done.If there is any alteration then only you need medicines.Drugs should be taken only after consultation with Gastroenterologist. I don't think small amount of alcohol already consumed by you will cause any bad effects immediately.But you should try to avoid it completely.It is not good for you in any way. Excessive amount of alcohol can cause recurrence of disease or cancer. It is better to avoid alcohol completely. Tablet augmentin is not indicated in you at present.It is an antibiotic and it will not help you. Get well soon. Hope i have answered your query. Further queries are most welcome. Take Care Dr.Indu XXXXXXX
