Ursodiol

Drug Info for ursodiol

Ursodiol is used to dissolve gallstones in people who do not want surgery or cannot have surgery to remove gallstones. Ursodiol is also used to prevent the formation of gallstones in overweight people who are losing weight very quickly. Ursodiol is used to treat people with primary biliary cholangitis (PBC; formerly known as a primary biliary cirrhosis; an autoimmune liver disease). Ursodiol is in a class of medications called gallstone dissolution agents. It works by decreasing the production of cholesterol and by dissolving the cholesterol in bile to prevent stone formation and by decreasing toxic levels of bile acids that accumulate in primary biliary cirrhosis.

Urso 250 is used to treat primary biliary cirrhosis and prevent gallstones from forming in your gallbladder. It may also be used to treat other conditions as prescribed by your doctor. Urso 250 is a bile acid that dissolves certain types of gallstones. It is indicated for use by adults and is available as a tablet.
