I had been on creons 24,000 3 times a day with meals (chronic pancreatitis)I used to take them after meals but still loosing alot of weight. I am 40 years old and weigh 78 pounds... I was almost dying Until i found a very good Doctor in NY. He told me to take the creons 20 mins before eating a meal. After a month I STOP loosing weight. Now its been like 8 months and now weigh 93 pounds and still gaining but slowly and healthly. I also have severe diabetes. Please do what i did you wont regret it. Wishhing all of you luck and do what it takes to survive even if you have to keep changing your doctors.
when i first started creon, they gave me the 3000 dose which didn't do a thing. I went to about 9 creon 24,000 the next day and have been taking them for about 14 months now. I am still loosing about 1/2 pound a month now (NOT GOOD.) Does anyone else have this problem? 5'5" and now 110 pounds.
Immediately--- withing hours, your digestion should stabilize if the problem is caused by insufficient pancreatic enzimes.
This isn't a drug that has to build up in your system like an antidepressant. It is replacement It replaces the pancreatic enzymes you lack, so if taken with meals it should be working to digest that meal.
