General Information on Creon 10
Creon 10 is a combination of three human proteins or enzymes- namely, protease, lipase, and amylase. The pancreas produces these enzymes naturally, and they play an important role in the digestion of fats, sugars and proteins. Creon 10 is used for replacing these enzymes if a person is suffering from a condition that causes a lack of these enzymes. Such conditions include chronic pancreatic inflammation, blockage in the pancreatic ducts, and cystic fibrosis. The generic name of Creon 10 is Pancrelipase, and it belongs to the therapeutic category of drugs named enzyme replacement medicines. This drug is available in an oral capsule form and works by breaking down fats, starches, and proteins from the food into smaller units so that they can be easily absorbed by the intestines. Your doctor may also advise you to buy Creon 10 if you have recently got your pancreas surgically removed.
Side Effects for Creon 10
The possible side effects that you may experience during Creon 10 treatment include diarrhea or constipation, vomiting, stomach cramps, gas, bloating, anus irritation, rash, headache, tarry or black stools, joint pain, swelling in the joints, or stomach pain. Most of these are short-lived and improve on their own as your body gets adjusted to the drug. However, if any of these worsen or persist, you should stop taking the capsules and seek medical help.
You should also stop taking Creon 10 if you develop an allergic reaction to it. An allergic reaction can be identified by hives, difficulty breathing, severe dizziness, or swelling or itching of the face, throat, lips, or tongue.
Special tests need to be conducted if you are suffering from a kidney disease, gout, chronic pancreatic disease, or if you have a history of intestinal blockage. While taking the Creon 10 capsules, you should swallow them immediately, as allowing them to stay on in your mouth for a long time can lead to oral irritation. Also do not crush the drug and inhale it, as doing so may irritate your nose and lungs. If the capsules remain in contact with your skin for a few minutes, they may even cause a skin rash in the area. Pregnant women and breastfeeding mothers should not take these capsules, as they may cause harm to the unborn or nursing baby. You should immediately contact your doctor if you become pregnant during Creon 10 treatment.
Creon 10 Dosage
Initially, your doctor will advise you to take 1-2 capsules per snack or meal. However, if the patient is less than 6 years of age, he/she should be given only one capsule per snack or meal. Store the capsules between 15º to 30ºC, away from heat and moisture. The duration for which Creon 10 needs to be taken is not constant, as it depends on several conditions such as your age, medical conditions, and response to treatment. You will be advised to take Creon 10 till your disease has been cured or until the desired effects are achieved. When it comes to stopping Creon 10 use, your doctor will taper off the dosage gradually.
Before you buy Creon 10 capsules, you should inform your doctor about all the prescription and non-prescription medicines you are taking at present, including herbal products and health supplements.
