I have asthma, aspirin sensitivity, and chronic sinusitis. Zyflo is works like magic for me! Does anyone know anyone who has liver problems from taking this drug? I don't drink and am very health concious

In answer to your question please read below:
Perform liver function tests (serum ALT) before initiating therapy, then once a month for 3 months, every 2–3 months for the remainder of the first year, and periodically thereafter.1 27 Discontinue therapy if signs or symptoms of liver dysfunction (e.g., right upper quadrant pain, nausea, fatigue, lethargy, pruritus, jaundice, “flu-like” symptoms) occur or serum ALT concentrations ≥5 times the ULN; monitor serum ALT concentrations until they return to normal.1 27
Use contraindicated in patients with active liver disease or serum ALT concentrations ≥3 times the ULN.1 27 (See Contraindications under Cautions.) Use with caution in patients who consume large quantities of alcohol, those with mild hepatic impairment (serum ALT <3 times the ULN), and those with history of liver disease.1 27
Hope this helps you out.
