Does ativan elevate your liver enzymes? I have anxiety and a prescription to ativan, but I have a liver function test tomorrow and I dont want to throw it off. I have not had any alcoholic beverages in 5 days leading up to the test. If i take my normal dose will it cause an increase?
Hi. Welcome to JustAnswer. I shall try my best to assist you while you are corresponding with me.

Ativan is safer than most of the other Benzodiazepines as far as liver function is concerned and it does not elevate or alter liver enzyme test results in therapeutic doses.
Taking your dose of Ativan will not off set your liver enzymes.
Hope this helps.
