I had a blood test recently showing abnormal liver function


Q: I had a blood test recently showing abnormal liver function. I'm currently on 100mg daily dose of Sertraline and am on birth control. I've started getting all the symptoms I got when I first started taking sertraline and when the dose was increased (headaches, insomnia, decreased appetite, palpitations, chest pain, confusion, increased depression, nausea, abnormal thinking, skin irritation/itchiness) plus I have bad pain around my liver on and off. I also bruise very easily and constantly have cold feet and hands. I'm worried my liver isn't metabolising the sertraline properly or something, should I be?
