If the tablet is being excreted intact then it is no point in continuing with it. From your description of fatty liver I would suggest two medications.
1. Tricholine citrate with sorbitol for 6 months.
2. Ornithine containing medications like hepamerz for 6 weeks.
Repeat a USG abdomen after 6 months and a liver function test after every 6 weeks.
