milk thistle
« on: October 11, 2014, 03:44:19 pm »
Hi everyone, i get my 3 month bloodwork done on Tuesday, so far so good.  I was wondering if it will be OK to start taking Milk Thistle again after i have it done.  I know we are not supposed to take it while on the Meds, but afterwards is it OK?  I have taken it for years and it is supposed to be good for your liver but don't want to upset my bloodwork in the future.    Thanks Mark

Finbar - I believe MWS - Mark is asking if it is OK to start milk thistle after treatment - is that correct Mark?
