    SAD. I take milk thistle, hylauronic acid and a multi vitamin high in magnesium every day, as well as vitamin D. I also use a light box daily.

    Thank you for the lightbox advice but light therapy has been well tried and just doesn't work for me...unless it is genuine sunlight unfortunately! Vitamin D3 does a good job for mood but is overly stimulating...I meditate and practise qi gong to help calm my mind.

    Well I can't give direct medical advice...but 200mg x 3 per day helped me recover from toxic hepatitis following a course of ciprofloxacin - no side-effects from the silymarin. I also don't think studies have shown that level to be a problem...but you'd have to double check that. Good luck!

    I just noted your recommended dosage of silymarin - 200mg three times a day. The one I am currently taking contains 176mg and says it is a one-a-day tablet. This is not the brand I used to use, but all this legislation madness means there is now little choice. Should I just take three of these a day?
