Gall stones are hardened deposits mostly made up of cholesterol that can form in gallbladder and can cause sharp, intense pain in the upper right part of the abdomen.

UDCAMENT SUSPENSION can also be used for liver disease associated with cystic fibrosis in children aged 1 month to 18 years.

UDCAMENT SUSPENSION is not recommended for use in patients having allergy to bile acids, calcified gallstones, inflammation of the gallbladder or the bile ducts, blockage of common bile duct or cystic duct, frequent cramp like pains in upper abdomen, low bile flow in children or improper function of gall bladder.

HOW UDCAMENT SUSPENSION WORKS

UDCAMENT SUSPENSION helps in reducing raised liver enzyme levels by increasing the bile flow through the liver and protecting liver cells. UDCAMENT SUSPENSION is concentrated in bile and decreases biliary cholesterol by suppressing the formation of new cholesterol by inhibiting its intestinal absorption. The reduced cholesterol levels lead to gradually solubilization of cholesterol from gallstones, resulting in their dissolution.
