Introduction

Ursobid 150mg Tablet is a medicine used to dissolve certain types of gallstones, to prevent them from forming and to treat a type of liver disease called primary biliary cirrhosis. It is a bile acid which helps break down cholesterol which has formed into stones in your gallbladder.

Ursobid 150mg Tablet should be taken after a meal with a glass of milk or water. The dose will depend on what you are being treated for and your body weight. It would be best to swallow it whole. This medicine needs to be taken regularly to get the most benefit and you may have to take it for several months or longer, so try to get into a routine. Keep using it as prescribed even if your symptoms disappear. Even if the gallstones completely dissolve, the treatment should still be continued for several weeks or months.

The most common side effects are abdominal pain, diarrhea, hair loss, itching, nausea, and rash. Not everyone gets side effects. If you are worried about them, or they do not go away, let your doctor know. If you have problems with diarrhea your doctor may reduce the dose or stop the treatment.

Before taking this medicine, you should tell your doctor if you have an inflammation of the gallbladder or bile ducts, you get frequent cramp-like pain in your upper abdomen, you have been coughing up blood or you have gained weight rapidly. Using this medicine can reduce or increase the effect of some other medicines so tell your doctor all other medicines you are taking. Women who use this medicine for dissolving gallstones should stop using the birth control pill because the hormones present in it can increase the production of gallstones. During the treatment, you may need ultrasound scans, or frequent blood tests to check your liver function.

FAQs

Q. When should I take Ursobid 150mg Tablet?

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. Ursobid 150mg Tablet 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 Ursobid 150mg Tablet safe?

Ursobid 150mg Tablet 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 Ursobid 150mg Tablet help the liver?

Ursobid 150mg Tablet 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 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 Ursobid 150mg Tablet cause weight gain?

Yes, there is a chance of weight gain with Ursobid 150mg Tablet, but it is not common. The use of Ursobid 150mg Tablet 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 Ursobid 150mg Tablet?

While taking Ursobid 150mg Tablet, avoid taking an antacid preparation without consulting your doctor, as they decrease the effectiveness of Ursobid 150mg Tablet. You should also avoid medicines like cholestyramine or colestipol as they affect the effectiveness of Ursobid 150mg Tablet. So, ask your doctor about the time gap that should be maintained between Ursobid 150mg Tablet 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 Ursobid 150mg Tablet.
