Experiences taking Creon

I was just diagnosed with stones in my pancreas (non cancer, whew!). They are causing my pancreas to not digest all my foods and are ordering Creon to take 3 with every meal and 1 with each snack for the rest of my life (I am a young 71). Has anyone taken it and what can you tell me? As of yet the pharmacy has ordered it and I'm not sure of the cost but saw that 90 pills were retailed at 700.00. I do have Medicare, Anthem Blue Cross and United Healthcare for prescriptions with a Walgreens plan. Appreciate any and all info. ## I have been on Creon 36,000 lipase. I have chronic pancreatitis and all the hospitalizations eventually broke down my own enzymes. That is why I take the Creon. I typically don't have many problems but sometimes Creon causes a bloated feeling and general we...

Zenpep Patient Assistance Program

Has anyone been approved for Activas Patient Assistance Program. I've been in the coverage gap(donut hole) since February. One months prescription is over $500 and I will need these enzymes for the rest of my life. If you were approved, How did you qualify. Do you have any insurance?

Is Kurzyme any good?

What is your experience of KurZyme? ## Kurzyme is a supplement, claimed to help with digestion. However, as a supplement, this also means that it is not proven to actually help with anything. Does anyone have experience using it? ## The brochure maintained that KurZyme was the product to end all products, no need for CoQ10 etc.etc. I had one of the symptoms it claimed to cure. After a month or so I noticed no benefit from using it. I requested a refund but was told that the refund date had passed. I mentioned that I had 2 bottles that could be recycled. The Operator said that they did not return the bottles, but they threw them away. That told me everything...if they could replace a bottle of this stuff for less than the cost of postage, it has to be junk. I plan on pursuing this as I a...

Round yellow orange MT 25 pill from Canada

I have a round orangey-yellowy pill with "MT 25" on one side. It's got the "MT" over the "25". I got it for free and was curious as to what it is because I can't find anything online. ## I found a pill with mt 25 on one side and nothing on the other side. Orange round pill. ## I need help as well. Same thing here. What are they? ## So far the only imprint codes which even come close are found on Pancreaze capsules manufactured by Vivus (source pdf), but I am confident in saying that the MT 25 pills are NOT the same drug. The Pancreaze capsules have imprints such as "MT 10", and "MT 20" ... but as I mentioned they're capsules, not round pills. Just posting this here cause I haven't been able to figure this one out yet either. If thi...

So please suggest me a tablet where I cam get it from wallmart to go for a free motion to clean my stomach ## My motion is not coming properly,will u plz suggest me the medicine... ## Prebiotic fiber, probiotics, digestive enzymes and adequate water may be beneficial tools for those who suffer from indigestion. For myself, I also feel that eating dark leafy greens (salads), soups, fruit and other light meals over a period of time can assist with gastrointestinal motility. Often times (at least in my case), it's simply a lack of enzymes or water that lead to constipation and bloatedness. Ha...

White oblong pill G 193

Found two oblong white pills, about 14mm. Blank on one side, G193 printed on the other. No scoring on either side. I thought it was lactase ("dairy pills"), which are used for lactose intolerance. Please help! ## Hi Julie, Based on my investigation your thinking was spot-on! An oblong white pill imprinted "G 193" is reportedly identified as an over-the-counter CVS dairy relief tablet that goes by the name "Lactaid Fast Act". This product is indicated for use in treating lactose intolerance. It is said to contain enzymes that help aid in the digestion of dairy products. I hope this helps!

More testing? Why not scan left side?

My Dr (Mueller) gave me an ultrasound on my right side and it showed fatty liver going down to pancreas and a cyst on my right kidney. He refuses to give me a scan on my left side. I am thinking of switching Dr's fast. Is that a good idea and what should I be doing for proactive care? I am on a diet and exercise as much as I can. ## Hi Sandy, Sorry to hear about your situation. Has this doctor given you any reasons or feedback as to why it may not be a good idea to scan your left side? Or is it out of sheer unethical behavior? Your answer to this question will affect whether or not someone advises you to switch doctors. Maybe he had a good reason? Maybe he didn't? Is he willing to explain his position? As far as proactive care is concerned, I'm surprised that the doctor didn...

Are digestive enzymes safe?

Are digestive enzymes safe for liver toxicity? I read that pancreatic enzyme is toxic to the liver. I took some and did not see a difference until I took digestive enzymes by Dr Matthew. It works and relieves my stomach pain and helps digestion but causes a little fever. I try not to take digestive enzymes often as I heard that it reduces the ability to digest on my own. Anyways, I wonder if digestive enzymes are safe for the liver?


## my dog has been diagnosed with pancreatitis and has high liver enzymes she has been on synulox and prednicare she has to stay on prednicare for the rest of her life she gets very poorly about every 2months so i wanted to know what prednicare does as when she falls poorly again i am having her put down as i feel it is not fair to let her suffer anymore she is also on l/d prescription diet. she is always hungry and drinks ecsessivelly. ## I am sorry to hear about your dog.

Do i have to have a prescribtion. I am 75 years old ## Pankreoflat contains Dimethicone and Pancreatin. The Pancreatin is a digestive enzyme and Dimethicone is used to prevent or treat gas.

This also means that I don't have information on the side effects for you.
