Answer

Treatment of conjugated hyperbilirubinemia is dependent on the cause; it may include supportive or curative measures. [8]

Failure to diagnose liver toxicity due to ongoing drug or toxin exposure may lead to liver failure and death. For this reason, it is best to stop all potentially hepatotoxic drugs until the cause of the conjugated hyperbilirubinemia can be determined.
