Exactly. I had elevated liver enzymes in December, which the physical had been taken while I was hitting weights 5 days a week. True bodybuilding type weight lifting. My AST and ALT were slightly out of range. Took 3 weeks off from lifting and got the liver panel rechecked and they dropped all the way down to the middle of the normal range. Your liver creates those extra enzymes to help repair your body after workouts.
I don't think your doc is terribly concerned with your liver enzymes if he gave you zoloft. Like Kathleen said, lots of things can cause liver enzymes to fluctuate. Heck, an intense workout can throw off your liver enzymes.
