Hello..
medicine is good for cholestasis but if you are not relieved ask your doctor for anti- itching creams or steroidal ointments, and dexamethosone tablets which may help in this condition.. and get your bile salt reports done routinely

Hi Priya, I'm in my 38th week now and facing the same since 32nd week. I have been taking the same medicine and things are better from last week. My doc advised me to use lacto calamine (pink one). Keep it in fridge .. dab in cotton and apply on body twice after bath.. I know how bad it is and most of the things don't work.. but try this one, it ll help for a few hours.
Also get LFT done every 5-6 days and keep your doctor updated.Dose
maybe reduced when things get better.

thanks so much. I hope it would help me
