My doctor wants me to stop taking the Milk Thistle and Dandelion Supplements and instead take something called Cholacol which is a combination of Bovine Bile Salts and Collinsonia.  I've done that for a couple of days but I am a little concerned as it seemed the Milk Thistle and Dandelion Supplements were more helpful.  Does anyone have any knowledge or experience with this?

Thank you for any help.

I don't have any experience with the product you mention, but it is not the same and does not perform the same function as the Milk Thistle and Dandelion Root.  Bile salts can help your liver manufacture bile, which helps to break down fat, but Milk Thistle  repairs the cells in the liver and protects it from harmful toxins.  Dandelion root has a similar function.

If you felt better with the Milk Thistle and Dandelion, then you should talk to your doctor about that. Ask him/her to explain the differences between the functions of the three supplements and what your health goals are.
