Urso contains Ursodiol, a naturally occurring bile acid in small quantities within human bile. Ursodiol reduces the cholesterol saturation of bile, which, in turn, dissolves cholesterol-forming gallstones and alleviates the liver’s toxic effects of bile acids in conditions such as primary biliary cirrhosis.

Urso, known by its generic name Ursodiol, is a medication used to treat certain liver and gallbladder diseases. It works by decreasing cholesterol production and dissolving it in bile so that it cannot form gallstones. Ursodiol is also used to treat primary biliary cirrhosis, a type of liver disease that progressively destroys the bile ducts within the liver.

Additional information



● Gallstone Dissolution: Urso is indicated for the treatment of patients with radiolucent, noncalcified gallbladder stones less than 20 mm in maximal diameter in whom elective cholecystectomy would be undertaken except for the presence of increased surgical risk due to systemic disease, advanced age, idiosyncratic reaction to anesthesia, or other issues making surgery risky.

● Primary Biliary Cirrhosis (PBC): It is also prescribed for managing patients with primary biliary cirrhosis, especially in the early stages of the disease.

Administration Guidelines


● The dosage of Urso will depend on the condition being treated, the patient's weight, and the doctor's prescription. For gallstone dissolution, a typical dose might range between 8-10 mg/kg/day, often taken in two divided doses. In PBC treatment, dosage may vary but follows a similar guideline based on body weight.

Method of Administration:

● Oral Tablet: Urso should be taken orally, with or without food. Taking the medication with food or milk may reduce discomfort if stomach upset occurs.

Dosage Form:

● Available in tablets or capsules for oral use. The strength of Ursodiol in Urso typically ranges from 250mg to 500mg.
