Ursodeoxycholic Acid is a bile acid which is used to treat gallstone problems. Gallstones can result in symptoms like jaundice, pain, inflammation of the pancreas and gallbladder too. The gall bladder creates stones when bile (generally a liquid) hardens. Calcium deposits in the gallbladder can also result in stone formation. This can cause severe pain.
