    Liver damage on aripiprazole and lamotrigine

    Are these meds responsible for high liver function levels? My liver levels were high after aripiprazole I'm almost scared to check what they are like after the lamotrigine. My psychiatrist wants me to go on olanzopine too. Is this risky because of my liver?
