Creon 25000 Capsules  100 Capsules

CREON 25000 Capsules is a pancreatic enzyme replacement therapy (PERT) that works by replacing the 3 pancreatic enzymes normally made by a healthy pancreas—lipase, protease, and amylase.

Your pancreas normally produces enzymes every time you eat, so CREON 25000 capsules needs to replace those enzymes every time you eat. Timing is key—CREON needs to be taken at the same time as food, with every meal and snack.

How does Creon 25000 work?

The enzymes in Creon 25000 work by digesting food as it passes through the gut. So you must take Creon 25000 at the same time as eating a meal or a snack. This will allow the enzymes to mix thoroughly with the food.

What Is CREON?

CREON (pancrelipase) is a medicine used to treat people who cannot digest food normally because their pancreas does not make enough enzymes.

When you have a checkup, share this information with your doctor and discuss how your treatment plan is going.Creon is available over the counter, Creon 10000 and Creon Micro Granules.Creon available via your doctor's prescription, Creon 25000iuOver time, your doctor may adjust your dose to meet your changing needs.
