Creon® (pancrelipase) is a medication given to certain adults, children, and infants to treat pancreatic enzyme deficiency. The extended-release capsules are taken with each meal and snack.
Due to certain exclusivity rights, Abbott Laboratories is the only manufacturer of Creon at this time. However, after these rights expire in April 2013, other companies may be allowed to make generic versions.
