1. Virkning og anvendelse

• Kreon 40.000 indeholder fordøjelsesenzymer (amylase, lipase og

protease), som fremmer fordøjelsen. Enzymerne er udvundet af

svinebugspytkirtler.

• Kreon 40.000 vil efter opløsning blive blandet med den bearbej-

dede mad fra mavesæk og tarm, hvor den virker ved at spalte fedt,

protein og kulhydrater til mindre dele, som kroppen kan optage.

• Du kan tage Kreon 40.000 ved sygdomme i bugspytkirtlen.

Lægen kan have foreskrevet anden anvendelse eller dosering end

angivet i denne information. Følg altid lægens anvisning og oplysnin-

gerne på doseringsetiketten.

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

Kreon

Tag ikke Kreon

• hvis du er allergiske 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 du har betændelse i tarmen.

• hvis du har cystisk fibrose, må du kun tage Kreon efter lægens

anvisning. Hvis du tager mere end 10.000 lipase enheder pr. kg pr.

dag og har usædvanlige mavesymptomer eller ændrede mavesymp-

tomer, skal du kontakte din læge.

Brug af anden medicin sammen med Kreon

Fortæl det altid til lægen eller apotekspersonalet, hvis du tager

anden medicin eller har gjort det for nylig.

Brug af Kreon sammen med mad og drikke og alkohol

Det er bedst at tage Kreon under eller umiddelbart efter et måltid.

Graviditet, amning og fertilitet

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

planlægger at bliver 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

Tag altid Kreon nøjagtigt som beskrevet i denne indlægsseddel eller

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

spørg lægen eller apotekspersonalet.

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

Det er vigtigt, at du sørger for at indtage rigelig væske hver dag i de

perioder, hvor du bruger Kreon, især i perioder med øget væsketab.

Utilstrækkelig væsketilførsel kan forværre forstoppelse.

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

synke kapslene, kan du åbne dem forsigtigt og indholdet (minimi-

krosfærer) kan tilsættes sur, blød mad (pH < 5,5), der ikke skal tygges,

eller minimikrosfærererne kan tages sammen med sur væske (pH

< 5,5). Dette kan være æblesauce, yoghurt eller frugtjuice med pH

mindre end 5,5, f.eks æble,- appelsin- eller ananasjuice. Blandinger af

minimikrosfærer og mad eller væske skal anvendes umiddelbart og

må ikke opbevares.

Du må ikke tygge eller knuse minimikrosfærerne, da det kan øde-

lægge 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.

Kreon, hårde enterokapsler fås i flere styrker. Vær derfor opmærksom

på, at du ikke nødvendigvis kan bruge dine enterokapsler til alle de

anførte doseringer.

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.

Symptomer:

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.
