The recommended dose for Actigall treatment of radiolucent gallbladder stones is 8 - 10 mg/kg/day given in 2 or 3 divided doses.
Ultrasound images of the gallbladder should be obtained at 6-month intervals for the first year of Actigall therapy to monitor gallstone response. If gallstones appear to have dissolved, Actigall therapy should be continued and dissolution confirmed on a repeat ultrasound examination within 1 to 3 months. Most patients who eventually achieve complete stone dissolution will show partial or complete dissolution at the first on-treatment reevaluation. If partial stone dissolution is not seen by 12 months of Actigall therapy, the likelihood of success is greatly reduced.
