4 weeks ago I had an adverse reaction to Penicillin resulting in severe jaundice and my bilirubin's going up to 330. Since the problem occurred I have battled with sever all over itching which at times feels like severe all over burning.
My levels are now coming down, last check a week ago they were at 128.
I am on Ursodeoxycholic Acid 250mg twice a day and Colestyramine 4g three times a day.
I have been prescribed a range of drugs to help with the itching none of which have worked. I was prescribed Rifampicin 150mg three times a day however having read the patient information leaflet, seen the risks in terms of liver damage and keeping in mind I am recovering from drug induced liver damage, I have decided to steer well clear of these.
My question is, as my levels come down how long will it take for the itching to clear up?
