About this item

Creon (pancrelipase) is a combination of three enzymes (proteins): lipase, protease, and amylase. These enzymes are normally produced by the pancreas and are important in the digestion of fats, proteins, and sugars.

Creon is used to replace these enzymes when the body does not have enough of its own. Certain medical conditions can cause this lack of enzymes, including cystic fibrosis, chronic inflammation of the pancreas, or blockage of the pancreatic ducts.

Creon may also be used following surgical removal of the pancreas.

Creon may also be used for purposes not listed in this medication guide.

How should I take Creon?

Take Creon exactly as prescribed by your doctor. Do not take it in larger amounts or for longer than recommended. Follow the directions on your prescription label.

It is important to use Creon regularly to get the most benefit. Get your prescription refilled before you run out of medicine completely.

Creon is usually taken with meals. Follow your doctor's instructions.

Do not hold the capsule contents in your mouth. The medication may irritate the inside of your mouth.

You may open the capsule and sprinkle the medicine into a spoonful of pudding or applesauce to make swallowing easier. Swallow this mixture right away without chewing. Do not save the mixture for later use. Discard the empty capsule.

Do not inhale the powder from a Creon capsule, or allow it to touch your skin. It may cause irritation, especially to your nose and lungs.

Store Creon at room temperature away from moisture and heat. After opening the bottle, keep it closed tightly between uses to protect from moisture.

If the medication is exposed to temperatures between 78 and 104 degrees F, throw it away after 30 days. Do not use any Creon that has been exposed to temperatures above 104 degrees F.
