Well, let me restate that, without the Milk Thistle my liver enzymes were pretty high. With the Milk Thistle they stayed just slightly elevated.
From what I have read, Milk Thistle cant be taken with Rifampin.
I guess I could rely on Dandelion tea..?
I switched from Milk Thistle to Pekana apo-hepat when my liver enzymes climbed at one point.
So far, so good.
It's homeopathic...and I took it with Rifampin per my LLND.
Maybe ask your LLMD about
FYI - I put MT in the drug interaction checker I use with Rifampin and it didn't show an interaction./www.drugs.com/interactions-check.php?drug_list=1633-0,2012-0
I wonder why.
