Post elevated liver enzymes

Has anyone ever had a slightly elevated liver enzyme reading from taking Plaquenil and/or low dose baby aspirin? I'm feeling great now, but my last blood test revealed slightly elevated AST and ALT. Was wondering if it could be the Plaquenil? Thanks!

Plaquenil is reknown for affecting the liver & eyes. One reason I can't take it.

Re: elevated liver enzymes

It may not be the Plaquenil. Lupus itself can sometimes cause the liver enzymes to be elevated a bit. Mine has been a few different times. The first time, I wasn't even taking Plaquenil yet.
