if rowachol inhibits the liver to produce bile which is stored in gallbladder, (bile being a mixture of some chemicals and cholesterol - good for digestion), then could it possibly causes indigestion or dyspepsia? if so, should i stop taking it then?

indigestion was not reported to be a side effect of rowachol. and as i understand it, rowachol does not inhibit bile production of the liver instead it works by increasing biliary secretions and reduces biliary stasis (suppression of bile). it is the enzyme HMG-CoA reductase that it inhibits (this process lowers cholesterol production) to prevent saturation of bile. this process promotes the dissolution of gallstones and prevent the occurrence of even more.
