Brief Answer:
No

Detailed Answer:
Hi and welcome.there is no need to worry since these are still small dosages and these are not extremely hepatotoxic medications which could aggravate liver damage significantly. It would be however recommendable to reduce painkillers in order to prevent other complications such as stomach ulcer or blood clotting disorders. Wish you good health. Regards
