Creon 3000 is a specific strength of the medication Creon, used to treat exocrine pancreatic insufficiency (EPI). EPI is a condition where the pancreas does not produce enough enzymes to properly digest food.

Creon 3000 contains a combination of pancrelipase, which includes lipases, proteases, and amylases. These enzymes help in the digestion and absorption of fats, proteins, and starches in the small intestine.

The delayed-release capsules of Creon 3000 are designed to release the enzymes in the small intestine, where they can assist in the digestion process.

Use and Dosage

The dosage of Creon 3000 may vary depending on the individual’s specific needs and the severity of their pancreatic insufficiency. Follow the dosage instructions provided by a healthcare professional. The dosage may be adjusted based on the individual’s response to treatment and their specific digestive symptoms.

Please note that Creon 3000 should be taken with meals or snacks, and the capsules should be swallowed whole. Crush or chew the capsules, as this may affect their delayed-release properties.

Consult a healthcare professional for personalized advice and guidance regarding the use and dosage of Creon 3000, as they can provide specific recommendations based on an individual’s medical history and condition.
