Ursodeoxycholic Acid 300 MG
●Ursodeoxycholic acid is a naturally occurring bile acid and is used to dissolve gallstones
that are rich in cholesterol.
●It is also used to improve the flow of bile in primary biliary cirrhosis.
●Dissolution of cholesterol rich gallstones
●Primary biliary cirrhosis
●Ursodeoxycholic acid reduces elevated liver enzyme levels by facilitating bile flow through the liver and protecting liver cells.
●Although the exact process of ursodiol’s anticholelithic action is not completely
understood, it is thought that the drug is concentrated in bile and decreases biliary
cholesterol by suppressing hepatic synthesis and secretion of cholesterol and by
inhibiting its intestinal absorption.
●The reduced cholesterol saturation permits the gradual solubilization of cholesterol from
gallstones, resulting in their eventual dissolution.
●Patients with complete biliary obstruction and known hypersensitivity or intolerance to
ursodiol or any of the components of the formulation.
