Painkillers such as Paracetamol, Morphine, Opium and Codeine can cause pancreatitis.

Addiction to painkillers or simple over use can in some minor cases lead to pancreatitis. Pain killers are similar to any drug and can come in the form of paracetamol, opium ingredients or codeine ingredients. These are then branded and sold and are extremely common across all areas of the world. I have been emailed questions about this and have spent about an hour researching this so I will provide some information below.

Now I must point out the chances of getting pancreatitis from taking pain killers is a lot lower than what you get from alcohol addiction and substantial drug abuse from illegal drugs such as heroin, cocaine etc etc. However the risk is still there so if you are feeling sore in the abdomen or under your ribs and have been taking to many pain killers recently or if you have been on pain killers for an extended period of time then it is best to be cautious and go see a medical professional straight away. If you can't book to see your doctor then simply go to the nearest local hospital.

Pain killers can be a short term solution to pain however when you are taking them over longer periods of time they do take a toll on your body. So it is best to discuss this with a medical professional when you can. Once again I will emphasize I am not a medical professional but I do a lot of research on these subjects. Check some major sites around the net that have great information. We also link to an online pancreatitis relief kit which has great feedback. But just remember look after your self and if you have any questions don't hesitate to get professional medical help. Your health is your most important asset. I wish you the best of luck.
