will taking a small dose of milk thistle help me to feel better?

I am jaundice and have had no energy and have had somewhat of a belly ache.

The effectiveness of milk thistle is debatable there is little to no scientific evidence to indicate efficacy.

If you have jaundice see your doctor. This is a potentially serious symptom.

“Jaundice must always be evaluated by a doctor. See a doctor immediately if you:

Notice any yellow tint to the skin or eyes of an infant, child or adult

Have dark-colored urine and abdominal swelling”
