This medication contains digestive enzymes designed to assist in breaking down and digesting fats, starch, and proteins found in food. It is utilized in situations where the pancreas is unable to produce or release sufficient digestive enzymes into the small intestines for proper food digestion. These conditions include chronic pancreatitis, cystic fibrosis, pancreatic cancer, post-pancreatectomy, and post-gastrointestinal bypass surgery.

Uses and Dosage

Take this medication orally with meals and snacks as directed by your doctor. Swallow the capsule whole; do not crush or chew it, as doing so may irritate the mouth and alter the medication’s effectiveness.

If swallowing is challenging, the capsule can be opened, and the contents mixed with a small amount of liquid or soft food that doesn’t require chewing (such as room-temperature applesauce). Avoid mixing the capsule contents with alkaline food or liquid (e.g., milk, ice cream, tea). Consult your doctor or pharmacist for guidance on foods/liquids to avoid when mixing. Swallow the food or liquid promptly, ensuring you don’t chew the medication. Drink a glass of water or juice after swallowing to ensure complete ingestion. Do not store the medication mixture for later use.

Dosage is determined by your medical condition, diet, weight, and response to treatment. Adhere to the prescribed daily capsule limit provided by your doctor. Taking more capsules than directed will not expedite improvement and may increase the risk of side effects.

Stay well-hydrated while on this medication, unless advised otherwise by your doctor.

Use this medication consistently to derive the maximum benefit, taking it with every meal or snack.

If your doctor has recommended a special diet, follow it for optimal results with this medication.

Do not alter brands or dosage forms of pancrelipase without consulting your doctor or pharmacist, as different products may contain varying enzyme amounts.
