Medications plus...: Medications, be it over the counter or prescription can cause pancreatitis. Sometimes the Common Bile Duct, which is the tube that allows bile, (made in the liver), into the duodenum=first part of small intestine, can be clogged up or have a stone it too. Could also be an issue with a pancreatic duct. A repeat Ultrasound would help. Also would check u'r Triglycerides and calcium levels.
