Dear jacobbinchacko,
I hope you have sought help to fight alcohol addiction through expert
professionals and also organizations like Alcoholics Anonymous which is
very useful.
As long as you continue to drink , the liver tests will stay abnormal and
can get worse causing more damage to your liver. Right now, you say
there are fatty changes in the liver. Next stage could very well be severe
scarring or "Cirhosis" which could cause massive bleeding, liver coma and
death. Please take these seriously.
As for the effects of SSRI and Clonazepam , sometimes can affect liver
enzymes. You have to discuss this with your doctor.
Wish you well,
