What causes high ggt number in liver blood test? Can it increase with ambien or tagamet intake?

What causes the ggt number in a liver blood test to be really high? Can taking too much ambien or tagamet or excedrin cause this number to be high. Normal was from 1-60 and mine was at 95 - 3 months ago and now is at 153 and I can't get in to see the specialist until Sept 3rd. Thank you YYYY@YYYY

Hi and welcome to HCm
yes some drugs, including these can cause ggt elevation but also alcohol and some liver diseases can do it as well. Wish you good health. Regards
