It's best to check the price with your local pharmacy. They will be able to give you the correct price. There may be other brands of pancrelipase cheaper than Zenpep ... please discuss with your doctor whether any of the cheaper brands would be appropriate for you.
Zenpep contains pancrelipase, a combination of three enzymes (proteins): lipase, protease, and amylase. These enzymes are normally produced by the pancreas and are important in the digestion of fats, proteins, and sugars.
Zenpep is 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.
