i have a ast of 107, ait of 200 amylase of 150 and lipase of 83. my only symptom is jaundice - no other pain or swelling or anything abnormal. I am taking lisinopril and metoprolol succinate - could these be causing damage to my liver and hence the elevated levels and jaundice?

Thank you for all the information,
Metoprolol can cause inflammation of liver, raised liver enzyme levels.
Frank jaundice is less common.
Other causes like hepatitis from an infection needs to be checked.
Your doctor can take hepatitis profile, ultrasound of liver.
I would advise to have a follow up with him.
Meanwhile, if you take alcohol, please avoid it.
Take plenty of fluid.
I hope this information helps.
