Ursodiol Indication

Ursodiol is used to treat a group of conditions known as cholestatic liver diseases (e.g., primary biliary cirrhosis). Cholestatic liver diseases are characterized by a decrease in bile secretion and bile flow.

Ursodiol is a natural component of bile and helps to increase the amount of bile and to increase bile flow. This helps symptoms associated with cholestatic liver diseases.

Ursodiol may be available under multiple brand names and/or in several different forms. Any specific brand name of Ursodiol may not be available in all of the forms or approved for all of the conditions discussed here. As well, some forms of Ursodiol may not be used for all of the conditions discussed here.

Your doctor may have suggested Ursodiol for conditions other than those listed in these drug information articles. If you have not discussed this with your doctor or are not sure why you are taking Ursodiol, speak to your doctor. Do not stop taking Ursodiol without consulting your doctor.

Do not give Ursodiol to anyone else, even if they have the same symptoms as you do. It can be harmful for people to take Ursodiol if their doctor has not prescribed it.

Ursodiol Dosage

To treat cholestatic liver diseases, the recommended adult dose of ursodiol is based on body weight. Your doctor will calculate a dose of 13 mg to 15 mg per kilogram of body weight per day, taken by mouth in 2 to 4 divided doses.

Ursodiol should be taken with food.

Many things can affect the dose of a medication that a person needs, such as body weight, other medical conditions, and other medications. If your doctor has recommended a dose different from the ones listed here, do not change the way that you are taking the medication without consulting your doctor.

If it is almost time for your next dose, skip the missed dose and continue with your regular dosing schedule. Do not take a double dose to make up for a missed one. If you are not sure what to do after missing a dose, contact your doctor or pharmacist for advice.

Store the medication at room temperature, protect from light and moisture, and keep it out of reach of children.

Do not dispose of medications in wastewater (e.g. down the sink or in the toilet) or in household garbage. Ask your pharmacist how to dispose of medications that are no longer needed or have expired.

Ursodiol Warnings

Before you begin using a medication, be sure to inform your doctor of any medical conditions or Allergies you may have, any medications you are taking, whether you are pregnant or breast-feeding, and any other significant facts about your health. These factors may affect how you should use Ursodiol.

Liver disease: Ursodiol is broken down by the liver. Liver disease or reduced liver function may cause Ursodiol to build up in the body, causing side effects and possibly worsen liver damage. If you have liver disease, discuss with your doctor how Ursodiol may affect your medical condition, how your medical condition may affect the dosing and effectiveness of Ursodiol, and whether any special monitoring is needed.

Monitoring: Your doctor should order monthly liver function tests for the first 3 months you are taking Ursodiol, and every 6 months after that. Improvements in the results of these blood tests do not always mean that the disease is improving. Do not stop taking Ursodiol without talking to your doctor.

Pregnancy: Ursodiol should not be used during pregnancy unless the benefits outweigh the risks. If you become pregnant while taking Ursodiol, contact your doctor immediately.

Breast-feeding: It is not known if ursodiol passes into breast milk. If you are a breast-feeding mother and are taking Ursodiol, it may affect your baby. Talk to your doctor about whether you should continue breast-feeding.

Children: The safety and effectiveness of using Ursodiol have not been established for children.
