LIVOCHECK 300 MG  Tab. 10x1x10 Monocarton

Ursodeoxycholic acid tablets are indicated in the treatment of primary biliary cirrhosis (PBC) and for the dissolution of small to medium sized radiolucent, cholesterol-rich gall-stones in patients with a functioning gall bladder.

Cholesterol stones coated with calcium or stones composed of bile pigments are not dissolved by ursodeoxycholic acid. Ursodeoxycholic acid has a particular place in the treatment of patients in whom surgery is contraindicated or who are anxious to avoid surgery.

Adults and Elderly:

The usual dose is 6 – 12mg/kg/day either as a single night time dose or in divided doses. This may be increased to 15mg/kg/day in obese patients, if necessary.

The duration of treatment may be up to two years, depending on the size of the stone(s), and should be continued for three months after the apparent dissolution of the stone(s).
