Thanks Girlie! I have heard that it isn't necessarily an interaction but more of the milk thistle detoxing the liver before the mepron has a chance to get through and do it's work. Or is this what an interaction refers to?
An interaction can be several things - reducing the effectiveness, enhancing the effectiveness, causing certain side effects
So, yes if milk thistle affected the liver by detoxing the MT out of your system that would be an interaction.
You can separate the two as much as possible to try and reduce that ...but Mepron has a long half life of 2-3 days so that might not help.
I wasn't told not to take milk thistle but at the moment I don't take MT so hadn't worried about
it. I tske Pekana apo-hepat but am running out so will probably switch to MT soon.
