Thanks for your query

Cefexime may cause side effects Like hepatitis, jaundice, and transient increases in SGPT, SGOT, and alkaline phosphatase.
Paracetamol may also can affect liver and Increase SGOT and SGPT levels especially in Alcoholic Patients.
Azithromycin can cause Hepatic side effects infrequently included transient elevations of liver function tests (including AST and ALT) and elevated bilirubin.

First, Since you are alright now and I hope you are not taking any of these medicines now.

Second, You can take hepatic protectors Like Udiliv.

Third, According my clinical experience,having curd and lot of water and avoiding fatty meal and alcohol will help reducing OT, PT levels

I hope this will help

Best wishes
