KREON 10 000 - 10000U - 20 hard capsules


  • $26.50

Creon 10,000 contains a mixture of enzymes called pancreatin. Pancreatin helps to digest food. Enzymes are obtained from pancreatic glands of pigs. Kreon 10,000 capsules contain small pellets that slowly release pancreatin in the intestine (enteric coated pellets, called mini-pellets). Creon 10,000 is used in children and adults with pancreatic exocrine insufficiency. This is the case where their pancreas (pancreatic gland) does not produce enough enzymes to digest food.
You can use it without the advice of your doctor for symptoms of indigestion caused by insufficient production of digestive enzymes. If the symptoms of pancreatic insufficiency (nausea, vomiting, diarrhea, constipation, abdominal pain) worsen or do not improve within 14 days with Kreon 10,000 treatment, consult your doctor. Use in children is always recommended by a doctor.
The pack contains 20 capsules.

Dosage and method of use

The dose is measured in lipase units. Lipase is one of the enzymes of pancreatin. Always follow your doctor's advice on how much to take Kreon 10,000. Your doctor will adjust the dose as needed, depending on: disease, weight, diet, and stool fat content.

Always take during or after meals or snacks. This will allow enzymes to mix thoroughly with food and digest it as they pass through the intestine.

If it is difficult to swallow the capsule, open the capsule carefully and add the pellets to a small amount of soft acid diet or mix with acidic liquid. For example, the soft acid diet may be apple marrow or yogurt. The acidic liquid may be apple, orange or pineapple juice. Swallow the mixture immediately, without crushing or chewing, and drink down with water or juice.
