Welcome to e health forum.

A range of doses have been described in the literature between 280-800mg of milk thistle or silymarin daily, As such most recommendations suggest 100-200mg three times daily alongside your meals.

The need for use of safe form of herbal supplements to improve your health is acceptable, as long as your doctor has not objected, keeping in mind the medical conditions that you may be suffering from.
