Creon Enzymes

Creon® (pancrelipase) is a medication prescribed to replace pancreatic enzymes (digestive enzymes secreted by the pancreas) that may become depleted in people who have cystic fibrosis, chronic pancreatitis, or certain other conditions.
  
This medication comes in the form of an extended-release capsule that is taken with each meal. It is approved for use in adults, children, and infants. Creon contains a mixture of different pancreatic enzymes, which help to digest fats, proteins, and starches.
