Uses

Properties

Rowachol increases biliary secretion, relieves spasm of the bile ducts, enhances metabolic liver function by reducing biliary stasis. By inhibiting HMGCoA reductase, endogenous cholesterol production is reduced, maintaining the bile above saturation level, assisting the dissolution of gallstones and preventing precipitation of further stones. The choleresis produced by Rowachol increases insulin production, assisting in the control of diabetic states. Indications Rowachol is indicated for the treatment of hepato-biliary disorders including the dissolution of gallstones. Also as adjuvant treatment in diabetic conditions. Dosage and Administration
