My son has been taking URSO for his liver since he was 2-1/2.  He's now 31.  He is so tired of taking it although it helps with his internal itching due to too many bile salts.

Anyone else take this?  What are your side affects?  Any other suggestions to take something else due to the excessive bile salts?

He was diagnosed at 6 mths with neo-natal hepatitis - was going to be on a transplant list, but then the URSO just came into being and UCSF doc wanted to try him on that and he's been on it ever since.  He took it regularly up till age 18, then just off and on since then.

thank you for your help.
