3. Sådan skal du tage Kreon.

4. Bivirkninger.

5. Opbevaring.

6. Pakningsstørrelser og yderligere oplysninger.

1. Virkning og anvendelse

Kreon indeholder fordøjelsesenzymer, som fremmer fordøjelsen.

Kreon virker ved at fremme nedbrydning af fedtstoffer, kulhydrater

og proteiner.

Du kan tage Kreon ved sygdomme i bugspytkirtlen.

Lægen kan have givet dig Kreon for noget andet. Følg altid lægens

anvisning.

2. Det skal du vide, før du begynder at tage

Kreon

Tag ikke Kreon

hvis du er overfølsom over for svineprotein, pankreatin, eller et af

de øvrige indholdsstoffer i Kreon (angivet i punkt 6).

Advarsler og forsigtighedsregler

Kontakt lægen, eller apotekspersonalet, før du tager Kreon

hvis du har svær forstoppelse,

hvis tarmen ikke fungerer, eller hvis der er betændelse i tarmen.

hvis du har cystisk fibrose, og får forsnævringer i tynd- og tyktar-

men (fibroserende colonpati). Ved forandringer i mave-tarmsyste-

met såsom mavesmerter, forstoppelse, opkast og oppustethed bør

du kontakte lægen.

Brug af anden medicin sammen med Kreon

Fortæl det altid til lægen eller apoteket, hvis du bruger anden medi-

cin eller har brugt det for nylig. Dette gælder også medicin, som ikke

er købt på recept, medicin købt i udlandet, naturlægemidler, stærke

vitaminer og mineraler samt kosttilskud.

Brug af Kreon sammen med mad og drikke og alkohol

Det er bedst at tage Kreon under eller umiddelbart efter hvert

hovedmåltid.

Graviditet, amning og frugtbarhed

Hvis du er gravid eller ammer, har mistanke om, at du er gravid, eller

planlægger at blive gravid, skal du spørge din læge eller apoteksper-

sonalet til råds, før du tager dette lægemiddel.

Graviditet:

Hvis du er gravid, må du kun tage Kreon efter aftale med lægen.

Amning:

Du kan tage Kreon, selvom du ammer.

Trafik- og arbejdssikkerhed

Kreon påvirker ikke arbejdssikkerheden og evnen til at færdes sikkert

i trafikken.

3. Sådan skal du tage Kreon

Kapslerne bør indtages sammen med rigelig mængde vand (1½ dl).

Du bør desuden indtage rigelig væske (2-3 liter) hver dag i de perio-

der, hvor du bruger Kreon.

Du kan synke kapslerne hele, eller hvis der er problemer med at

synke kapslene, kan du åbne dem forsigtigt og granulatet kan til-

sættes blød mad (pH < 5,5), der ikke skal tygges, eller granulatet

kan tages sammen med væske (pH < 5,5). Dette kan være æble-

sauce, yoghurt eller frugtjuice med pH mindre end 5,5, f.eks æble,-

appelsin- eller ananasjuice. Blandinger af granulat og mad eller

væske skal anvendes umiddelbart og må ikke opbevares.

Du må ikke tygge eller knuse granulatet, da det kan ødelægge det

beskyttende entero-overtræk, og det kan medføre nedsat effekt og

irritation i slimhinderne. Det er også vigtigt at sikre, der ikke bliver

noget af produktet tilbage i munden.

Den sædvanlige dosis er

Cystisk fibrose

Dosis afhænger af din vægt og bør tilpasses sygdommens svær-

hedsgrad. Doseringen bør ikke overstige 10.000 lipase enheder/kg

legemsvægt/dag eller 4.000 lipase enheder/gram fedt i kosten/dag.

Følg lægens anvisning.

Voksne og børn over 4 år:

Dosis bør starte med 500 lipase enheder/kg legemsvægt/måltid.

Børn under 4 år:

Bør ikke anvendes til børn under 4 år uden lægens anvisning.

Dosis afhænger af barnets vægt. Dosis bør starte med 1.000 lipase

enheder/kg legemsvægt/måltid. Følg lægens anvisning.

Dosering ved andre tilstande forbundet med nedsat bugspytkirtel

Dosis bør tilpasses individuelt, baseret på graden af fedt i afføringen

og mængden af fedt i måltidet. Den nødvendige dosis til et måltid

varierer fra ca. 25.000 til 80.000 lipase EP-enheder (f.eks. 1-3 kapsler

Kreon 25.000), og det halve til et mellemmåltid.

Tag altid Kreon nøjagtigt som beskrevet i denne indlægsseddel eller

efter lægens, eller apotekspersonaletss anvisning. Er du i tvivl, så

spørg lægen eller apotekspersonalet.

Hvis du har taget for mange Kreon

Kontakt lægen, skadestuen eller apoteket, hvis du har taget flere

Kreon, end der står i denne information, eller flere end lægen har

foreskrevet, og du føler dig utilpas. Tag pakningen med.

Store doser pancreasenzymer kan give øget urinsyreindhold i blod og

urin.

Hvis du har glemt at tage Kreon

Du må ikke tage en dobbeltdosis som erstatning for den glemte

dosis.

Hvis du holder op med at tage Kreon

Spørg lægen eller apoteket hvis der er noget, du er i tvivl om eller

føler dig usikker på.

Kreon kan som al anden medicin give bivirkninger, men ikke alle får

bivirkninger.

Lumpy skin disease: scientific and technical assistance on control and surveillance activities

Published on: Tue, 16 Oct 2018 00:00:00 +0200 The duration of the vaccination campaign sufficient to eliminate lumpy skin disease (LSD) mainly depends on the vaccination effectiveness and coverage achieved. By using a spread epidemiological model, assuming a vaccination effectiveness of 65%, with 50% and 90% coverage, 3 and 4 years campaigns, respectively, are needed to eliminate LSD. When vaccination effectiveness is 80% to 95%, 2 years of vaccination at coverage of 90% is sufficient to eliminate LSD vir...
