Flagyl Pancreatitis Causes and Reviews
The pancreas is a large gland behind the stomach and close to the first part of the small intestine. It secretes digestive juices into the small intestine through a tube called the pancreatic duct. The pancreas also releases the hormones insulin and glucagon into the bloodstream.
Pancreatitis is inflammation of the pancreas. It happens when digestive enzymes start digesting the pancreas itself. Pancreatitis can be acute or chronic. Either form is serious and can lead to complications.
Acute Pancreatitis occurs suddenly and usually goes away in a few days with treatment. It is often caused by gallstones. Common symptoms are severe pain in the upper abdomen, nausea, and vomiting. Treatment is usually a few days in the hospital for intravenous (IV) fluids, antibiotics, and medicines to relieve pain.
Chronic Pancreatitis does not heal or improve. It gets worse over time and leads to permanent damage. The most common cause is heavy alcohol use. Other causes include cystic fibrosis and other inherited disorders, high levels of calcium or fats in the blood, some medicines, and autoimmune conditions. Symptoms include nausea, vomiting, weight loss, and oily stools. Treatment may also be a few days in the hospital for intravenous (IV) fluids, medicines to relieve pain, and nutritional support. After that, you may need to start taking enzymes and eat a special diet. It is also important to not smoke or drink alcohol.

|The exact same thing happened to me after I was prescribed high dose Flagyl for 5 days for suspected diverticulitis (painful bloating, frothy yellow diarrhea, excessive foul gas, etc.) my doc also put me on a Clear Liquid Diet for 3 days before I had this episode... I called 911 from work because I felt chest tightness, shortness of breath, extremely lightheaded, and couldn't stand up or walk without almost passing out. I was confused also with difficulty concentrating and speaking. EMTs found my blood pressure to be 170/100 and my EKG showed a "Right Bundle Branch Block". I felt better after they gave me nitroglycerin and 4 baby aspirins. At the ER my EKGs and cardiac enzymes were normal. A CT scan of my abdomen failed to show any diverticulitis- they told me it looked completely normal. They also said I was dehydrated with a slightly low potassium level which was to be expected after 9 days of diarrhea. They thought my episode was caused by severe intestinal spasms probably due to side effects of the Flagyl and ibuprofen I had taken that morning on basically an empty stomach!|

|I am currenty on Flagyl for a pelvic infection in combination with vibramyacin. This morning I took the vibramyacin and then was planning on taking the Flagyl an hour later, but I spent the this morning vomiting. I called the dr. and was told by my dr. to continue taking both but with food..vibramyacin said to take on empty stomach, but I think the Flagyl was effecting me from the night before and not drinking enough water in combo with the vibramyacin .. and I think that's why I threw up I did not take the Flagyl before I threw up, however, after I was ok and spoke to the dr hours later , he told me to continue taking both but I took the Flagyl thinking it was the vibramyacin causing all the trouble, I had stomach burning all day and then just a half hour ago I took the Flagyl again and immedialtey had I realized soon after taking it again that it is the culprit causing a heartburn like burning senstation in my stomach and lower esophogas... I am calling my dr. tomorrow again to tell him that I can't deal with this. I tried to push through since I want to be fully rid of the pelvic infection but this is ridiculous. It feels like a horrible heartburn burning sensation.|
