    Hello sir...based on the causes of pancreatitis, antibiotics is not used to treat.the commonest causes are gall bladder stones and alcohol.. As a matter of fact,in a small group of people,antibiotics can cause pancreatitis. Other causes are trauma.mumps and measles, steroids,scorpion sting etc....basically leave a healthy life .alcohol is a major cause, so avoid drinking especially Binge drinking....cheers
