CREON dosing is based on your specific needs
Your doctor will prescribe your CREON dose specifically for you based on things like your body weight and diet.1 It’s important that you work with your doctor to make sure the dose you’re taking is appropriate for you.
Some important things to keep in mind:
Your first dose is a starting point
Your doctor prescribed your CREON dose according to things such as how much you weigh and what you eat. The idea is to start with the lowest dose that may be appropriate and see how it works.1
After you have taken CREON for a couple of weeks, keep track of what you are experiencing and share it with your doctor; your dose may need to be adjusted.
One size doesn’t fit all
Think of it this way: sometimes you have to try on a few pairs of shoes to figure out which ones fit. The same can be said about your dose; your doctor may adjust it depending on how things are going.
Talk about your symptoms with your doctor
Keep track of any gastrointestinal (GI) symptoms you may be experiencing and discuss them with your doctor. Your dose may need to be adjusted.
It’s always a good idea to eat healthy
Doctors recommend a healthy, balanced diet for people with and without EPI. Talk to your doctor about your current diet and consider any recommendations your doctor may have.
