Is Prozac a major cause? What Prozac users should know.

I have been using prozac for nearly five years now. And i feel mentally stable on the medication. I also have been told i need to take the medication for the rest of my life to control anxiety and depression. Now i have had one bout of acute pancreatitis and now i need to look after myself to ensure it doesn't come back. So far i have been eating healthy and keep fluid up by drinking between 3 and 4 litres of water per day. And it has worked so far with no relapses of the condition.

However something that has got me intrigued is, could my acute pancreatitis have been caused by me taking prozac? Well i can't find any proof that this has been a factor. But i do know its most likely not the cause as i was drinking a little to much alcohol and eating fatty foods. But it is worth doing some research on the subject and contact your local GP. I have been told it wasn't a contributing factor for me. But everyones body reacts differently to different medications. And medications have been known to have caused pancreatitis. So do some research on how consuming prozac effects you.
