    In November my ALT was 60 (normal is 7 - 50). Last week is was 55. Since it came down 5 points, doc is going to watch it and test again in 2 months with a bunch of other liver tests. If it's still elevated he's going to yank my Relafen.

    I can't take milk thistle because it interacts with my beta blocker. I don't have alot of options here. I'm going to start dandelion. What form do I use-the root, leaves, tea?

    Any help is much appreciated.

    Hi Paula,
    Why don't you start with the tea. You can always work to a heavier amount if you have to. Something else you might want to check. Can you take Sam-e with a beta blocker? Sam-e also helps protect the liver.
