"Out of all the synthetic pancreatic enzymes I have taken Creon20 is the most helpful so far but I find its best just to not eat fat. Also a normal person needs only 30 calories of fat a day so if you have cystic fibrosis keep this in mind. "
"Creon has helped my little three year old cousin. She was born with cystic fibrosis and she doesn't understand what it can and what it is doing to her! She is a heathy little girl that is going to survive this birth defect!"
Frequently asked questions
"Was given this med due to chronic diarrhea PCP wanted to see if would help with it. The same night I took it, I started having horrible mid to upper back pain then pain along the left side that went into the abdomen. I went to ER and told them about meds and they ran test and was unsure. I got labs b4 I left showed infection in blood so now being treated for this rare infection with high dose antibiotics . Make sure to get labs for this since virus can be over looked if there not familiar with Creon"
"I've used Creon all my life (I'm 28), and changed to Creon 25,000 about 10 years ago which meant I didn't need to take as many tablets for my Cystic fibrosis."

"I'm a 42 year old male with cystic fibrosis. Survived until 38 with no medication but constant diarrhea. Could not tolerate fatty foods or alcohol - made me very nauseous and big weight swings. Creon has stopped all this completely and life is much happier and healthier. The little Creon carry pack makes taking creon 25,000 with meal easy. Very happy."
