1. Dear Drugs-Forum readers: We are a small non-profit that runs one of the most read drug information & addiction help websites in the world. We serve over 4 million readers per month, and have costs like all popular websites: servers, hosting, licenses and software. To protect our independence we do not run ads. We take no government funds. We run on donations which average $25. If everyone reading this would donate $5 then this fund raiser would be done in an hour. If Drugs-Forum is useful to you, take one minute to keep it online another year by donating whatever you can today. Donations are currently not sufficient to pay our bills and keep the site up. Your help is most welcome. Thank you.

    Hastier P, Longo F, Buckley M, Chichmanian RM, Delmont JP.

    A woman who developed acute pancreatitis following ingestion of low dose codeine, with positive rechallenge, is described. As this is the first case report of pancreatitis being induced solely by codeine, this side effect must be rare in view of the widespread consumption of this drug.
