Thanks for the information I also told the Dr is was too expensive and that my insurance company said they have a generic Ursodiol which the hep Doctor agreed would be fine. However, the only thing elevated for me are my AST and ALT the rest are all normal. They felt that this drug would protect my liver and that I can remain on this instead of prednisone. Sometimes I wonder if they really know what they are doing.
