The generic ingredient in Urso is called ursodiol. Ursodiol is a bile acid used in the management cholestatic liver diseases, such a primary biliary cirrhosis, also known as primary biliary cholangitis or PBC.
Doctors prescribe Urso to increase bile flow in patients with cholestatic liver disease, a condition where there is reduced bile secretion and flow, which can lead to liver tissue damage.
Ursodiol is a bile acid that is made naturally in the liver. By taking Urso, the amount of ursodiol in the bile increases, thereby changing the make-up of the bile and causing an increase in flow. This is important because a buildup of bile and toxic wastes in the liver can damage tissue.
Your doctor will prescribe the correct dosage for your particular condition. The usual adult dosage for the treatment of PBC is 13mg/kg to15mg/kg per day, administered in two to four divided doses. If you need to divide a tablet in half, the Urso tablet is scored to make it easier.
These may not be all the side effects of Urso 250mg.
Do not take Urso if you have a blockage of bile flow due to widespread liver disease or complete blockage due to other diseases. As with other medication, you should not take this medication if you have an allergy to any of the ingredients on the bottle.
Before you take this medication, tell your doctor if you have bleeding from swollen veins or arteries, or swelling of the abdomen. Tell your doctor if you are taking other prescription or non-prescription medicines, or have severe stomach pain.
You should store Urso tablet at room temperature in a closed container. As with other medication, keep Urso out of reach of children.
Normally, bile is produced in the liver and passes through ducts (tube-like structures) to the gallbladder. Cholestatic liver disease results from an impairment of bile formation or flow to the gallbladder and may lead to liver damage. Primary biliary cirrhosis (PBC) is one type of cholestatic liver disease. PBC slowly destroys the small to medium-sized bile ducts. Bile then builds up in the liver and may lead to damaged liver tissues and liver malfunction. Primary biliary cirrhosis commonly causes itchiness, fatigue, dry mouth and eyes, and jaundice, but some people have no symptoms.
