Creon 5 Side Effects Center
Medical Editor: John P. Cunha, DO, FACOEP
Creon 5 Minimicrospheres (pancrelipase) is a combination of three enzymes (proteins): lipase, protease, and amylase 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. It may also be used following surgical removal of the pancreas. Common side effects include diarrhea, constipation, abdominal pain/cramps, dizziness, nausea, or vomiting.
The usual initial starting dosage is two to four Creon 5 delayed-release capsules per meal or snack. Creon 5 may interact with other drugs. Tell your doctor all medications and supplements you use. During pregnancy, Creon 5 should be used only if prescribed. It is unknown if this drug passes into breast milk. Consult your doctor before breastfeeding.
