Our customer asked:

My miniature schnauzer is on destolit and hepatosyl for a liver bile problem which causes her to have fits occasionally
I have been reading about the benefits of milk thistle and would like to know if it would be ok to take along with the other medications.

Our answer:

Hepatosyl is designed to take the place of Milk Thistle. Hepatosyl is a standardised and regulated product, containing 3 active ingredients, one of which is based on the naturally occurring but randomly variable wild plant. This active ingredient of both products is the same.

I doubt if it would be unsafe to use both together because it is pretty much non-toxic, but I also doubt if you would get any extra benefit. I would continue as you have been.
