            I too have learned how dangerous it is to take medications. I am not suffering from Chronic Pancreatitis, partly caused from the antibiotics I take for the monthly UTI's I get.....

              Could you tell me what meds you were on? You said 20. Thanks.

                  i'm glad you are doing better! i get on a website and check my medicine interactions when i get prescribed new ones. its very helpful, and you may want to check it out when you see a new doctor or get put on more meds.

                  keep feeling better! meg
