Urso (Ursodiol) requires a valid prescription from your doctor. This medication is used to treat and dissolve certain types of gallstones, to prevent them from forming in obese patients who are losing weight rapidly and to treat certain type of liver disease (primary biliary cirrhosis). Urso belongs to a class of medications known as bile acid and it works by decreasing the amount of cholesterol produced by the liver and absorbed by the intestines. This medication breaks down cholesterol that has formed into stones in the gallbladder. In addition, this medication also increases bile flow in patients with primary biliary cirrhosis and is primarily used to treat biliary cirrhosis. Urso is usually used in people who have small gallstones and who cannot have gallbladder surgery, and to prevent gallstones in overweight patients undergoing rapid weight loss. The Ursodiol capsules are not used for treating gallstones that are calcified.
