welcome to HealthcareMagic
Liptor is Atorvastatin and is used to lower blood cholesterol .It has definite side effects of liver causing drug induced hepatitis so it will be better to stop it if your doctor advises so.So please consult your doctor and then if he says stop Liptor but you can continue your antiviral although they also have a few side effects.
