I’m a 26 year old male with pancreatitis, I’ve just been prescribed Creon, 25000 with snacks and 50000 with meals. I’ve been having diarrhea for over a year now. Will this help?
How long does Creon take to work?

I have had diarrhea for 6 months and started Creon a month ago. Have had noticeable improvement in the last week
Freon has helped me. I used to have diahrrea every other day. I couldn’t eat steak without going to the bathroom. It’s very embarrassing. So I’m on Creon and it stopped the diarrhea definitely. I even gained 14 lbs in a month. Seriously, but it does help with the diarrhea. Best wishes
I have been on Creon, same dosages as you, for four years. Bodies respond in different ways and I am sure you have shared your information with your doctor, if not, do so. If you are not loosing weight, it is probably a side effect. However, if you are, it is time to talk again. Don't be bashful, medicine is a partnership but you must particpate. I experience both constipation and diarrhea. Dosages can be adhusted. Hang in there praying for you.
Thank you very much. Regarding the weight yeah I’ve lost a lot of weight within the last few years but more over the last year. I just hope this tablet is the right one and can help me sort my problems out. Many thanks
