i am sorry to inform you but cirrhosis is a irreversible condition.
the functioning of the liver can not be changed by the medicines. however with medicines we can prevent complications arising from cirrhosis and improve the generl health of the patient.
you need to monitor the weight, look out for symptoms like swelling of abdomen and legs, vomiting of blood etc.
if symptoms worsen i would advise you to consult your physician.
i the mean time continue the prescribed medicines.
i hope i have answered your quey.
take care
