Is it a precautionary measure? I read its a possible preventative treatment to prevent or slow down gallstones in bariatric patients with fast weight loss? Any input? Thank you ...... Answered by Dusti Omtiveros 2 years ago.

More than one-third of obese patients who have gastric surgery develop gallstones. Gallstones are clumps of cholesterol and other matter that form in the gallbladder. During rapid or substantial weight loss, the risk of developing gallstones increases. Patients usually take Actigall. for the first 6 months after surgery to reduce this risk. If you happen to develop gall stones despite that medication, you might need to have your gall bladder surgically removed. How are things so far? How much can you eat? How was the pain? Hope it goe s well for ya! Answered by Emily Markowski 2 years ago.


Does ursodiol/actigall have to be taking with food?
does ursodiol/actigall have to be taking with food? Asked by Hyacinth Chirinos 2 years ago.

Ursodiol is used primarily to treat or prevent gallstones. It works by inhibiting production of cholesterol in the liver and absorption in the intestines, which helps to decrease the formation of gallstones. It should be taken with food or milk, or as directed by your doctor. Answered by Maggie Robare 2 years ago.

Is there a prescription medication given that (over time) softens gall stones?
Asked by Curtis Bringer 2 years ago.

Yes and no. Actigall (ursodiol) is a gallstone dissolution agent, it doesn't soften them. It works by decreasing the cholesterol content of bile and bile stones by reducing the secretion of cholesterol from the liver and the fractional reabsorption of cholesterol by the intestines. It can take many months, sometimes over a year, to dissolve the stone. The recurrence rate is greater than 50%. Answered by Birdie Hjermstad 2 years ago.

Nah, just have to have them taken out if they are bothering you. They is a small tiny little pill you can take that helps with the discomfort from your gall bladder. Have to see your doctor. Answered by Markus Braskett 2 years ago.

Sorry. No. The surgery, now, however is laproscopic, and easy. You'll be able to walk out the next day. Answered by Yulanda Quall 2 years ago.
