I had bloodwork done and my liver enzymes came back high.  My doctor tested me for Hepetitis and it was negative.
They asked if I take a vitamin, which I do take a daily multi vitamin.
I also take neurontin and prozac - could this be the cause?

Welcome to the forum jsanta!!

Do you have lupus? or think you have lupus??? I'm sorry I don't know much about the liver, but wanted to welcome you to the forum.

There are many meds which are processed by the liver and can cause enzymes to rise . . .but I don't know the particulars on very many meds. We like to look up meds at this link: http://www.drugdigest.org/DD/Home but I'm not sure that your question would be answered there either.

Maybe some of the other members know more about this.

I don't think I have Lupus.  Don't think I was ever tested for it.
I am trying to get in touch with the  doctor who gives me my daily prescription medications.
I will ask that question when I get in touch with them.

You can call your local pharmacist and they will look up each medicine for you and discuss their interactions over the phone with you. Leaving you no doubt as to whether one of these did it or not. Sometimes enzymes can go up with alcohol and sometimes with heart. Medications is another biggie. Please ask your local pharmacist.

thanks kiers

Which tests did you have done?  GGT, ALT, Alk Phos?  Some of them are specific for certain things, and other tests are very non-specific. 
One other cause of elevated liver enzymes is a "fatty liver".  Very common.  Anyone who eats high fat foods will have this.  The enzymes will go down as the diet is changed.
Hope you get some answers!
