Jeanne,

Yes it does go away with Ursodiol 2-3 times daily. We will win this no doubt.

Hello Rosemary! Thank you for the kind words. I have been on Ursodiol for a good part of my 9 yr journey. It was prescribed for the itching exclusively, and it truly keeps me from itching so bad. I am glad to know about this group, as I greatly enjoy helping others with liver disease. My journey has been a rough one, but I have found peace with my diseases and feel blessed to be here. Thanks for what you do!

Hi Jeanne, I am a Stage 4 Cirrhosis patient (9 years). I have been “on” but now off of the transplant list as my meld has improved. I have terrible itching that is well controlled with a drug called Ursodiol. It is an expensive drug, and some insurance companies will cover it, and some will not. I have also used GoodRx for many drugs including this one. I wish you the best with your care.
