Medication for Primary Biliary Cirrohsis

Please can you advise if there is any generic medication for Primary Biliary Cirrohsis. I am on 9 x 100 mg Ursotans per day and this is costing me a fortune. The medical aid does not unfortunately list my condition as chronic even though it actually is. Thanks.

Hi Nanette

Unfortunately URSOTAN (Ursodeoxycholic Acid) does not have any generic equivalent on the SA market. Other treatment options are available, but this is one of the more effective options available.
