Why is Urso Suspension Prescribed?

Urso Suspension contains two active ingredients, Ursodiol and Ursodeoxycholic Acid, which help to regulate bile and cholesterol. Urso Suspension prompts greater bile flow and lessens the amount of cholesterol that your liver makes and your intestines absorb. The medication is most often prescribed for cholestatic liver diseases and should be taken orally. A valid prescription will be needed to purchase Urso Suspension.

How Urso Suspension Works in Your Body

The active ingredients in Urso Suspension work together in those that have gallstones formed from cholesterol (the most common type of gallstone) and to treat a progressive liver disease called primary biliary cirrhosis (PBC). Ursodiol is one of the active ingredients that works by dissolving and preventing gallstones by acting as a bile acid and decreases cholesterol absorption from your intestines. The other active ingredient is Ursodeoxycholic Acid and it will help to disperse cholesterol slowly in order to reduce the amount of cholesterol being released by your liver.

Conditions Treated by Urso Suspension

Urso Suspension is used to treat certain forms of cholestatic liver disease, including cholesterol-based gallstones and primary biliary cirrhosis. These conditions can remain relatively symptomless, or they can manifest with symptoms like nausea, abdominal pain, and yellowing of the skin. Generally, they develop when there is either too much cholesterol or too little bile fluid in the body.

Primary biliary cirrhosis, which is believed to be an autoimmune disease, causes the bile ducts in the liver to be destroyed over time. The body needs bile to digest food and get rid of toxins, cholesterol, and worn-out red blood cells. The disease leads to harmful substances accumulating in the liver, and can even cause permanent liver tissue scarring. Urso Suspension will help by decreasing your cholesterol production and increasing your bile production.

Gallbladder stones formed with cholesterol will also be broken down by this medication. Your doctor may prescribe Urso Suspension if you have gallstones but cannot have them surgically removed, perhaps because of age, health complications or anesthesia risks.

Before You Take Urso Suspension

Ask your doctor if Urso Suspension is safe to take if you are pregnant, trying to conceive, or are breast feeding. You should have a discussion with your doctor about other medical conditions or allergies you have and list all prescription drugs, over-the-counter medications or herbal medications you are taking or using. This may determine if your doctor feels Urso Suspension is right for you.

Precautions for Urso Suspension

Do not use Urso Suspension if you have an obstruction of the liver or gallbladder. Also, you should tell your doctor if you have been coughing up blood or if you have recently gained a lot of weight. Avoid the use of antacids while taking Ursodiol-Ursodeoxycholic Acid, as they may restrict your ability to absorb the ingredients.
