Brief Answer: Stop herbal compounds . Detailed Answer: Hi, Thanks for writing in. You need to stop all the herbal medications immediately. You need to start liver tonics for a period of 6 weeks till the enzymes come to normal. Herbal products do not have exact active components identified and their side effects highlighted. Therefore quite a few of these products are unsafe. Now you need to start liver tonics containing sorbitol , tricholine citrate and ornithine preparations. I hope this answers your query. Regards
