Thank you for your query.
Ursocol is a drug which increases conjugated bilirubin and helps in excretion of bile and cholesterol from our body thus decreasing the jaundice.
It decreases the raised liver enzyme levels back to normal. It is probably describe because you have fatty liver or sign of fibrosis and cirrhosis. YOu should continue taking it till your bilirubin levels stabilize.
Wishing you good health.
