Ursodial is a type of dissolving agent used to dissolve gallstones in patients who are opposed to surgery or who cannot have surgery to remove them.
This type of medication works by decreasing the cholesterol production level and dissolving the cholesterol in the bile so it is incapable of forming stones.
Ursodial is taken orally in the form of capsules in dosages which are predetermined by your doctor.
Common side effects associated with this type of drug include constipation, upset stomach, diarrhea, dizziness, indigestion, cough, vomiting and sore throat.
Ursodial may also be prescribed by doctors for the prevention against gallstone formation in overweight individuals who are losing weight at a quick pace.
