Soft gelatin capsules

Febichol is a choleretic agent which means a drug increasing the production of bile. Each capsule of Febichol contains 100 mg of active ingredient fenipentol (fenipentolum).

Febichol capsules are to be used by adult patients to treat digestive problems in chronic (long-term) liver disease and bile duct disease (disorders of gall bladder activity, chronic cholecystitis, chronic development of gall bladder stones, chronic liver disease associated with digestive symptoms caused by impairment or disorder of biliary tree) and conditions after surgical removal of gall bladder or after hepatitis. The product may be used by adults and youths older than 15 years of age.

  • Dosage: Standard dosage for adults and youths over 15 years of age is 2 capsules of Febichol three times a day (always immediately before meals), some patients with less severe symptoms may use Febichol only occasionally as needed (2 capsules immediately before meal).

Capsules are to be swallowed unchewed and unmacerated (the contents have hot, bitter taste!) and are to be swallowed with sufficient amount of water (e.g. one glass of water). Febichol capsules may be used in the long-term. However if you intend to use them continually longer than 14 days, consult your physician who will advise you whether it is appropriate for your particular case.

  • Adverse effects: Febichol capsules are in general well tolerated.

Some patients may report heartburn [or having “hot feeling in the throat (in the pharynx and the esophagus) or burning retrosternal pain] or feeling burning in the stomach”. Some patients using Febichol capsules report symptoms hard to discern from their own treated symptoms (feeling pressure and fullness in the upper abdomen, nausea, flatulence). Rarely, allergic reactions (hypersensitivity reactions) such as urticaria (efflorescence of itching, red extensive, confluent elevated spots on the skin), skin rash or face swellings cannot be excluded. If you develop any of the mentioned symptoms of hypersensitivity reactions, stop using Febichol and seek medical help immediately!
