Talk about your symptoms with your doctor

Keep track of any gastrointestinal (GI) symptoms you have after eating and discuss them with your doctor. Your doctor may need to adjust your dose.

I take CREON any time I eat. My dose is larger for a meal vs a small snack. Taking CREON easily fits in my schedule as I just think of it as part of my meals now.
