Frequently asked questions about Ursofalk Products

Frequently asked questions about Ursodeoxycholic Acid

Q. When should I take Ursofalk 250mg Capsule?
The suitable timing of taking this medicine might differ depending upon your condition. Your doctor might instruct you to take 2 to 3 doses per day and suggest to take the last dose at bedtime. Ursofalk 250mg Capsule should be taken with water milk and can be taken with food or after food. When prescribed for dissolving gallstones, it is usually suggested to be taken once daily at night. Ideally, it should be taken at a gap of 6 hours, for example at 8 am, 2 pm and 8 pm.
Q. Is Ursofalk 250mg Capsule safe?
Ursofalk 250mg Capsule is usually considered to be a safe and effective medicine. However, this medicine may have some common side effects, such as diarrhea. If diarrhea occurs, your doctor may reduce the dose and if it persists, your treatment may be discontinued. Additionally, using this medicine as a long-term therapy may also affect your liver enzyme levels. To keep a check on this, your doctor will keep monitoring your liver enzyme levels regularly. Despite these minor side effects, this medicine is supposed to be a good alternative to surgery in some patients with gallstones.
Q. How does Ursofalk 250mg Capsule help the liver?
Ursofalk 250mg Capsule acts on the liver and gets concentrated in the bile secreted from the liver. This, as a result, suppresses the synthesis and secretion of cholesterol by the liver, thereby decreasing the cholesterol levels in bile. This medicine also acts by stopping the intestines from absorbing the bile salts and cholesterol. So, the reduced cholesterol saturation in the bile from the liver leads to the gradual dissolving of cholesterol from gallstones, leading to a decrease in size and their eventual dissolution. It also reduces elevated liver enzyme levels by increasing the bile flow through the liver, hence protecting the liver cells.
Q. Does Ursofalk 250mg Capsule cause weight gain?
Yes, there is a chance of weight gain with Ursofalk 250mg Capsule, but it is not common. The use of Ursofalk 250mg Capsule can cause weight gain when prescribed in patients with liver disease associated with chronic stasis of bile in small bile ducts of the liver. In such condition, bile cannot flow from the liver to the small intestine. Again, the chance of weight gain varies from person to person depending upon the disease, so consult your doctor if you experience weight gain.
Q. What should I avoid while taking Ursofalk 250mg Capsule?
While taking Ursofalk 250mg Capsule, avoid taking an antacid preparation without consulting your doctor, as they decrease the effectiveness of Ursofalk 250mg Capsule. You should also avoid medicines like cholestyramine or colestipol as they affect the effectiveness of Ursofalk 250mg Capsule. So, ask your doctor about the time gap that should be maintained between Ursofalk 250mg Capsule and these medicines. Also, avoid taking oral contraceptives, estrogenic hormones and blood cholesterol-lowering agents such as clofibrate as they may increase the chances of developing gallstones and act opposite to the Ursofalk 250mg Capsule.
