Common Questions and Answers about Pancreatitis medications acute


Avatar f tn have got acute pancreatitis it has recovered can i get it back again i get bad back pain after i eat would that have something to do with that
Avatar n tn About two years ago I developed chronic pancreatitis. Some people can have an acute pancreatitis attack, recover, and never have any problems again. I wasn't one of those lucky ones. The chronic pancreatitis is here to stay.
Avatar f tn you are correct, cat food, being richer, has set off his pancreatitis. As you know acute pancreatitis can be a fatal event. It can also be transient. no one knows how your dog will do. Medications will decrease the severity of this event and sounds like if you get him over this you have managed his diet very well. I'd like to see his pancreatic work up and treat him to get him over this quickly and so that it does not progress further.
Avatar n tn BTW, you asked in your first post if anyone had ever had pancreatitis. I wanted to clarify to you that I have had three acute pancreatitis attacks and I now have chronic pancreatitis. Swelling in my abdomen was very visible in the area affected, and that area was particularly painful to pressure. The pain was excrutiating all throughout the abdomen, behind the sternum, through to the back anyways, but any pressure on the swollen area was even more intense.
Avatar n tn I had to put my 11 year old Llhasa apso to sleep yesterday because he was diagnosed with pancreatitis and was in so much pain that they could not guarantee that he would survive even with treatment. It came on suddenly...he was fine Saturday but began throwing up in the middle of the night and continued...he couldn't even hold down water and was very weak. I took him into the veterinary hospital on Sunday and he was too weak to come home.
Avatar f tn Last week, my 8 year old Siberian Husky went down with acute pancreatitis, which was probably triggered by gorging on dog food. (he got into the canister of food) He came home on Thursday, and on Friday appeared to be on track, but my dog sitter had trouble administering his antibiotic and pain meds. By the time I got home on Sunday he was lethargic and totally off his food.
Avatar n tn I recently was treated for acute pancreatitis. Could any of the medications that I am taking be a cause of it? They are: Remeron, Clonazepam, Levoxyl, Westhroid, T-3 S/R, Estradiol, Gabitril, Mestinon, Valtrex, Plavix, Zanaflex, DHEA, Oxycontin, Amoxicillin, Progesterone, Provigil. I have Lyme Disease (Babesiosis) and also have been diagnosed with: HSV-1, HSV-2, CMV, HHV-6, HHV-7, HHV-8, Rubella, Toxoplasmosis, Campylobactor Jejuni, Candida Albicans, Bartonella Henselae, Bartonella Quintana.
Avatar n tn Can Adderall cause an episode of acute pancreatitis if one has a history of chronic pancreatitis?
Avatar n tn Please do not self medicate. Sometimes oral medications do not help and you need intravenous fluids and medications to overcome the acute attack. Consult a doctor to assess your current status. Take care! The medical advice given should not be considered a substitute for medical care provided by a doctor who can examine you. The advice may not be completely correct for you as the doctor cannot examine you and does not know your complete medical history.
Avatar f tn This causes the enzymes to irritate the cells of your pancreas, causing inflammation and the signs and symptoms associated with pancreatitis. With repeated bouts of acute pancreatitis, damage to the pancreas can occur and lead to chronic pancreatitis. Scar tissue may form in the pancreas, causing loss of function. A poorly functioning pancreas can cause digestion problems and diabetes.
Avatar n tn I need to know the cause of acute pancreatitis, treatment, proper medications for this problem, and if there is any type of surgery that would prevent this. I do not have a stone, so that was ruled out. I am desperate! Recently, I had pancreatitis for the eleventh time in about six years. Each time it seems worse. Please help me. Thank you.
Avatar n tn Many of my conditions are related to post-Graves Disease. Ten years ago I had my gallbladder out after an attack of acute pancreatitis. I subsequently developed chronic pancreatitis and was diagnosed with Sphincter of Oddi. Rather than have the invasive surgery I went on a strict, fresh chicken soup diet with supplements ordered by an Ayruvedic doctor. Within 2 years I was completely recovered and could eat anything.
701334 tn?1262857103 male,non smoker,stopped drinking(weeked warrior,heavy at times,but stopped) i have a buddy with pancreatitis,and im scared this could be that too,but i look at him,and compare myself to him,and im NOWHERE near as bad as he is,,,,but what could be causing this pain in center into my back?
Avatar n tn Pancreatitis can affect other organs in the body including the liver. This episode of pancreatitis had an acute onset and being acute may not have the lasting effects that a chronic insult could have. The liver has remarkable regenerating power, and should regenerate (though slowly) through this episode. It may help for you to give Piper some liver support medications and supplements such as Denosyl, milk thistle, alpha-lipoic acid, burdock and dandelion root.
Avatar n tn I know from experience how awful pancreatitis can be, and hope he at least has a decent pain management doc. I can't imagine going through a huge surgery like a Whipple only to have it fail. Do the docs give you any idea at all as to why he is still having attacks? Another blockage? Scar tissue? Anything? It may be true that there really isn't anything left to do. People with chronic pancreatitis sometimes suffer for years and years until the pancreas basically burns itself out.
Avatar n tn I have been doing research off and on for the past 9 and 1/2 months since having an acute pancreatitis attack and having my gallbladder removed. My liver and pancreas enzymes have pretty much returned to normal. My liver enzymes ocassionally run over the high end of the scale, but not by much (a few points) and my surgeon explained that it may be that I am just one of the people who fall outside the standard scale.
902019 tn?1249865014 I quit swimming, skiing, and trying to polish my toenails because the thing would double me over. Then I had an acute attack of pancreatitis...unbelievable pain and lasted all night vomiting bile and blood. The ER docs scanned the heck out of me with contrast dye and could see no liver or pancreas or duct problems. I stayed in the hospital for five days to calm the pancreas and remove the gall bladder (no stent.) The pancreatitis remained chronic after that with mild elevations of enzymes.
Avatar n tn In about 15% of cases of acute pancreatitis and 40% of cases of chronic pancreatitis, the cause is never known." Source: Doing your own research can only help. Check out the "First Principles of Gastroenterology", I would take special note of the biliary system, Sphincter of Oddi Dysfunction and pancreatitis.
Avatar f tn 3 months back my husband( aged 31 yrs) was diagonosed with acute severe pancreatitis. he was kept in intensive care for 7 days and then moved to the general ward where he spent 8 days more (diet was fluids). on his discharge the abdominal usg suggested a diffusely enlarged pancreas that showed hypoechoic echotexture; thin strip of reactionary fluid were noted along anterior border of pancreas and lasser sac and fluid collection in left paracolic gutter.
Avatar m tn You probably have acute pancreatitis which can come out of nowhere. It might be mild right now but I wouldn't wait for the serious pain. Drinking & fatty foods, such as cheese brings it on. This is serious. I suggest you sto drinking & see a specialist.
Avatar n tn I have had acute pancreatitis and now have chronic pancreatitis. The lab that tests my bloodwork says that with amylase, anything over 88 is high, lipase, anything over 63 is high. Some labs allow a higher range for both, but even those adjusted levels are less than your daughter's levels. Her lipase is especially high. Her triglycerides are high. Another important indicator. Don't buy it!
Avatar f tn old and in 2005 I was diagnosed w/acute Pancreatits due to the Depakote. I am not an alchoholic (which is the very 1st thing they ask you.) Once I had the Cat Scan and the Ultra Sound (which showed nothing) my blood was taken and the Lypase & Amylase levels were through the roof. They told me to get off Depakote as soon as possible or I would basically die. I then went through a series of different Seizure Medications until I found one that worked almost as well.
Avatar f tn But it can take the pancreas time to heal after an acute bout of pancreatitis. Some regimes recommend fasting with only water, in order for the healing to take place. However, yes 10 days is quite a long time for a little dog to go with no nutrients at all. Is she getting any fluids? Are the fluids staying down? If not -then that is an emergency by now. Serious dehydration could set in. I am sure the vet has provided a diet food....and that is probably kibble. Am I right? Or is it a soft food?
Avatar n tn I think the theory his gastro doc was leaning toward was that for some reason he developed this acute pancreatitis, which led to the bile duct stricture, which led to the elev liver enzymes.
Avatar f tn Hi Tony, My Dog Zoey shih tzu 10 yrs old was diagnosed with kindey failure (Chronic on Acute) on Thursday 04/27/2017. I never knew she had a kidney disease and now feel horrible that i never recognized it or took her in to get checked. She has always been a picky eater so her picking and choosing when to eat didn't concern me much until she began to lose weight rapidly. Within a matter of a week her weight went down dramatically.
Avatar f tn I hope someone out there can help me. For 14 years, I have suffered abdominal attacks in my diaframe very high up in the area between my rib cages. The pain mimics pancreatic pain. The pain is so horrible that I almost wish I could die. It usually lasts 20 to 30 minutes, but can be longer. I am paralized during these attacks & can't move. They usually occur 4 to 6 times a year with milder attacks in between the more serious attacks. Lately, they are becoming more frequent.
Avatar n tn Hi, I was admitted in a hospital a week ago for acute pancreatitis and was discharged just after 30 hours. I was instructed to take Omeprazole for two weeks and then go back for follow-up. However, last night, just five days after my very first attack, I was in so much pain again that I had to be rushed to the ER. This time they didn't admit me as my Lipase level was lower than in the first attack (316). They did, however, added another medication: Maalox Susp.
Avatar n tn Dear Charlotte, The most common causes of acute pancreatitis in the United States are alcoholic pancreatitis and gallstone pancreatitis. Many patients with so-called idiopathic (unknown cause) pancreatitis end up having microlithiasis (small stones or crystals in the biliary tree). There are many other causes of acute pancreatitis but they are less common.. I will list them for you.
Avatar f tn A doctor needs to have lots of experience doing these because of the high risk of acute pancreatitis. Most GI Drs do not do these everyday so are hesitant to do them on patients because of that risk and they are uncomfortable since they do not have a lot of experience doing the procedure. A good Dr.
