I saw many doctors and most of them are concerned only about bilrubin and told me that other counts are fine and asked me to medcine for cough/cold and liveril forte for sgpt control.

Thanks for writing in.
Certain antibiotics can cause alteration in liver enzymes. In your case the alteration is very minimal and should not be a cause for concern as other liver enzymes are normal.
You can continue with liver tonics containing ornnithine such as hepamerz tablets.
Stop the antibiotics as early as possible.
I hope this answers your querry.
With regards
