Yes, while taking milk thistle taking yet more silymarin through
other meds is something to be careful about.

If you don't have a copy of this text, yet, Tansy, you'd really like
it. The second edition is so much better than the first. It's
available through 1-800-678-5689. It's $60 before shipping and tax
when applicable. Strongly suspect that you are among those who have
it, but since I think you'd enjoy it, just in case you don't have it
or someone else is interested in a thorough and balanced reference I
figure that I'd eat up as few lines of space with the info.
