Hello. I just started taking a divided dose of 1000mg of ursodiol. While I hadn't been exactly well for several months, the Urso seems to have made matters much worse. Has anyone else suffered terrible gastrointestinal distress when beginning to take this medication?
I do take several other medications, which my doctor reviewed before starting me on the Urso. I've been taking my doses as instructed, 500mg in the morning with breakfast and again at bedtime with fat-free milk or a small bite of food.
After 4 days everything I eat seems to cause diarrhea, cramping, vomiting and the nighttime itching and daytime fatigue have both worsened. Please tell me this is a temporary adjustment to the medication and things will improve.
Thanks for any information you might provide. I do have a call into my physician's assistant since the reaction doesn't seem to be improving.
