A: I'm sorry this happened to you. No one here can tell you whether you should proceed with a lawsuit. It could require investigation of your medical history and evaluation of warnings that come with the drug. Additionally, attorneys would likely need the guidance of medical and pharmacology experts in making determinations about such lawsuits. Lawsuits for the drug have been filed for pancreatic cancer and possibly pancreatitis. You could reach out to law firms to discuss further. Good luck
