Sucraid (sacrosidase) Oral Solution is an enzyme replacement therapy used to treat sucrase deficiency that occurs in people with congenital sucrase-isomaltase deficiency (CSID). CSID is a genetic enzyme deficiency and Sucraid Oral Solution will not cure this condition. Common side effects of Sucraid Oral Solution include:
- stomach pain
- sleep problems (insomnia)
- increased thirst, and
- dry, hot skin
The recommended dosage of Sucraid is 1 or 2 mL (8,500 to 17,000 I.U.) or 1 or 2 full measuring scoops (each full measuring scoop equals 1mL; 28 drops from the Sucraid container tip equals 1mL) taken orally with each meal or snack diluted with 2 to 4 ounces of water, milk or infant formula. Sucraid may interact with other drugs. Tell your doctor all medications and supplements you use. Sucraid may be harmful to a fetus. Tell your doctor if you are pregnant or plan to become pregnant during treatment. Consult your doctor before breastfeeding.

Sucraid FDA Prescribing Information: Side Effects
Adverse experiences with SUCRAID in clinical trials were generally minor and were frequently associated with the underlying disease.
In clinical studies of up to 54 months duration, physicians treated a total of 52 patients with SUCRAID. The adverse experiences and respective number of patients reporting each event (in parenthesis) were as follows: abdominal pain (4), vomiting (3), nausea (2), diarrhea (2), constipation (2), insomnia (1) headache (1) nervousness (1) and dehydration (1).
Note: diarrhea and abdominal pain can be a part of the clinical presentation of the genetically determined sucrase deficiency, which is part of congenital sucrase-isomaltase deficiency (CSID).
One asthmatic child experienced a serious hypersensitivity reaction (wheezing) probably related to sacrosidase (see WARNINGS). The event resulted in withdrawal of the patient from the trial but resolved with no sequelae.
