      are your liver /pancreas functions being monitored monthly ? I expect they are. I was on aza for about 4 months when I developed high readings for liver and pancreatitis in  monthly blood tests. This was accompanied by a stitch-like pain nagging on my right side just below ribs. Very occasionally it was on the left. Was told to stop Aza and pain cleared up after about 2 weeks.

      Not sure about the other meds you are on.

      Jo i too have bile salt malabsorption & am on questran sachets. Are you aware with questran you have to take all other meds including vits either 1 HOUR BEFORE QUESTRAN or 4 HOURS AFTER any other meds/vits? Its very important as if you don't follow these timelines, other meds/vits will get "stuck" in your system & not work properly. x
