Creon Medication Information

If you have a pancreatic enzyme deficiency caused by certain medical conditions, your healthcare provider may recommend a medication called Creon® (pancrelipase). This prescription drug comes as an extended-release capsule that is taken with each meal and snack.
 
Pancreatic enzymes are digestive enzymes secreted by the pancreas. They help digest fats, proteins, and starches. However, in people who have cystic fibrosis, chronic pancreatitis, or certain other conditions, these enzymes may become significantly low, which may lead to malnutrition or other problems.
 
Before taking this medication, review the prescribing information on Creon with your healthcare provider. Some people may not be able to safely use this drug. For example, your healthcare provider will need to know if you have a history of bowel problems, high uric acid in the blood, or a history of other medical problems.
