I have High Liver Enzymes, please suggest me

Just got a letter in the mail from my Dr. that my Liver Enzymes are high and to start taking milk thistle. (The reason its so high is because I m on a great deal of antibiotics). I see my Dr. in 2 weeks to see if he has anything else to say about it, but does anyone know if doing a liver cleanse would be helpful ?

Liver cleanse - don't waste your money. Milk thistle - no solid proof it is effective but shouldn't be harmful. Ideally, milk thistle is taken to prevent, not treat, liver issues. But as there are no good pharmaceutical trials showing its efficacy, who knows?
