    Get another opinion!!!! Never heard of acute pancreatitis being caused by metforman.  Most of the time they find it in people that drink excessively.  But in rare cases this is not the case.  My dad suffers from the same and it has caused him to get pancreaous cancer.  So please get another opinion by a specailist.  And he doesn't even drink that is what had his doctors puzzled.
