Hi and welcome to HCM,thank you for your query.
You just need to wait and follow hepatic diet till lft stabilize. avlod alcohol,fat food and hepatotoxic drugs. this is not some serious bilirubin elevation and it should be corrected spontaneously in 4-6 weeks after you stop copaxone. also,if you dont have symptoms you dont have to be concerned. you dont need to treat laboratory findings...
Wish you good health. Regards.
