Comments from related studies:

  • From this study (3 weeks ago):

  • Afriacan American/Native American/Hispanic/Haitian. Has a history of acute pancreatitis, may have been taking Meloxicam at the time. Has started on Meloxicam again, with GI symptoms. Stopped the Meloxicam a few days ago, today has bilateral knee swelling.


  • From this study (4 weeks ago):

  • I do not see a physician, in fact not in last 5 yrs (for a broken wrist). Did have a broken tooth removed 2 months ago- was administered novocaine at the time of the 3hr visit but took nothing in the way of pain killers...not even aspirin. Constipation is nothing new to me but I can usually beat it without having to resort to a colonic


  • From this study (2 months ago):

  • Not on any meds at this time, but my RA is painfully but afraid of any meds due the pancreatitis.
