What is a Generic Drug?

A generic drug is a copy of the brand-name drug with the same dosage, safety, strength, quality, consumption method, performance, and intended use. Before generics become available on the market, the generic company must prove it has the same active ingredients as the brand-name drug and works in the same way and in the same amount of time in the body.

The only differences between generics and their brand-name counterparts is that generics are less expensive and may look slightly different (eg. different shape or color), as trademarks laws prevent a generic from looking exactly like the brand-name drug.

Generics are less expensive because generic manufacturers don't have to invest large sums of money to develop a drug. When the brand-name patent expires, generic companies can manufacture a copy of the brand-name and sell it at a substantial discount.

Description

ACTIGALL (Ursodiol) is a medication prescribed for a variety of uses, including the treatment and prevention of gallstones.

The gallbladder produces bile, which is a digestive fluid that helps to metabolize fats and fatty acids. Gallstones are hardened deposits of bile that form in the gallbladder. They may be present without causing symptoms but can cause symptoms when they block the bile duct.

ACTIGALL works in the liver and reduces the amount of cholesterol that it releases. By decreasing cholesterol secretion, bile is less likely to form into bile stones.

Directions

Take ACTIGALL exactly as prescribed by your doctor.

If you are taking ACTIGALL for gallstone prevention, take 300 mg by mouth twice daily.

If you are taking ACTIGALL for gallstone treatment, take 8-10 mg/kg/day in two or three divided doses. Your healthcare provider will calculate the correct dosage.

Ingredients

The active ingredient in ACTIGALL is ursodiol.

Ursodiol is the name of ACTIGALL generic.

Interactions

ACTIGALL has many drug interactions. Tell your doctor or pharmacist if you are taking any of the following:

  • Aluminum hydroxide
  • Bile acid sequestrants
  • Estrogen products (oral contraceptives)
  • Fibric acid derivatives
  • Nitrendipine
  • Sincalide

Cautions

Tell your doctor if you have a history of liver disease before taking ACTIGALL. If so, your liver will need to be monitored during the first 3 months of treatment and every 6 months thereafter.

It may take several months of therapy for gallstones to dissolve if ACTIGALL is being used for dissolution.
