Ursodiol is used to prevent and treat the formation of certain types of gallstones or for liver disease (biliary cirrhosis).
Ursodiol decreases the amount of cholesterol in bile and bile stones by reducing the amount of cholesterol the liver produces. Ursodiol reduces the amount of cholesterol that is absorbed from food and increases the breakdown of cholesterol, especially cholesterol that has formed into stones in the gallbladder. Ursodiol also changes the make-up of the bile acid pool, creating an increase in bile flow in patients with primary biliary cirrhosis.
