Description

What is Creon 25 for?

Creon 25 treats cystic fibrosis and pancreatitis by aiding with digestion. Similar conditions can be treated with Creon 25, so long as a defining feature of the condition is a malfunctioning pancreas resulting in Exocrine Pancreatic Insufficiency.

Take Creon 25 tablets with a meal or snack or no longer than 30 minutes after eating.

Creon dosages are not interchangeable with other pancrelipase products. Do not attempt to substitute Creon 25 with a similar medication until you have the relevant dosing instructions from your doctor.

These tablets are meant to be swallowed whole with water. Do not crush or split tablets.

The various strengths for this medication are measured using units describing the amounts of each enzyme present in the tablet. For example, Creon 25 mg tablets are described as 25000/25500/1600. This means that there are 25,000 USP units of Lipase, 25,500 USP units of Amylase, and 1,600 USP units of Protease.

What is Exocrine Pancreatic Insufficiency?

Exocrine Pancreatic Insufficiency (EPI) is a health condition provoked by a variety of other conditions, such as cystic fibrosis and pancreatitis. In EPI, there is a lack of presence of the enzymes usually found in the pancreas.

The enzymes in the pancreas are responsible for breaking down proteins, carbohydrates, and fats into smaller compounds that can be absorbed into the body for use. This is a crucial step in metabolizing food.

EPI can cause malnutrition, which in turn can lead to other health complications, including osteoporosis and anemia.

How Does Creon 25 Work?

Creon 25 uses the active ingredient Pancrelipase, which resupplies the pancreas with the enzymes needed to digest the organic material. This contains lipase, proteases, and amylase, the three enzymes used to break down triglycerides, starches, and fats.
