Overview

Introduction

Panzynorm-N Tablet is used to treat pancreatic enzyme deficiency. It is a pancreatic enzyme supplement that helps in digestion. This medicine also reduces stool frequency and stomach discomfort.

Panzynorm-N Tablet should be taken during or immediately after eating a meal or a snack with plenty of water. This helps the enzymes mix with the food so they can help digest it. The dose you’re given will depend on your condition and how you respond to the medicine. You should take this medicine until your doctor tells you to stop. You may be taking it for the rest of your life, so get into a routine and make sure you take it regularly. Panzynorm-N Tablet may only be a part of your treatment which could include a special diet.

The most common side effects of this medicine include stomach pain, abdominal bloating, and diarrhea. If these bother you or won’t go away, let your doctor know. There may be ways of preventing or reducing these effects.

Panzynorm-N Tablet is taken from pig glands so you shouldn’t use it if you’re allergic to pork. You should let your doctor know if you have gout, asthma or any allergies. If you have diabetes, this medicine may affect your blood sugar levels and therefore your diabetes treatment. You shouldn’t take it at the same time as an antacid. Talk to your doctor if you’re pregnant or breastfeeding to make sure it’s safe for you. While you’re taking it, your doctor may carry out regular blood tests to make sure it’s helping you.

How to cope with side effects?

The occurrence of side effects varies from person to person. The following are a few ways of dealing with some of the common side effects. However, consult your doctor if these persist.

  • Coping with Stomach pain
    Try to get plenty of rest and relax. Putting a heat pad or covered hot water bottle on your stomach may relieve the stomach pain. It may help if you eat and drink slowly and have smaller and more frequent meals. Reduce your intake of coffee, tea and alcohol as these can make the pain worse. If you are in a lot of pain, speak to your doctor about possible medication. Your doctor may be able to prescribe some over-the-counter medicines to help reduce the pain.
  • Coping with Bloating
    Try eating small and frequent meals. Drink and chew your food slowly. Exercise regularly to improve how your body digests food. Try not to swallow too much air. This can happen when you talk and eat at the same time. Avoid drinking with a straw, chewing gum and smoking as these can also make you swallow air. Try to limit foods that are hard to digest or produce gas (such as fried and fatty foods, cheese, beans, cabbage, onion, whole grains and many others). Avoid drinking alcohol, carbonated soft drinks and fruit juices. If you wear dentures, make sure they fit properly. Some over-the-counter medicines can help. Talk to your doctor about possible medication if your condition does not improve.
  • Coping with Diarrhea
    Keep up your intake of fluids and electrolytes (sugars and salts) to avoid getting dehydrated. Eat less fiber (avoid raw fruits, fruit juice and vegetables). Talk to your doctor about possible medication to manage diarrhea. Ask about reducing the dosage of your drug or other suitable treatments.

You should try to take five small meals to make it easier for your pancreas to digest what you eat. Take a well-balanced, low-fat diet and strictly limit the foods which contain a high amount of saturated and trans fats. Your diet should preferably contain whole grains, fruits, vegetables, fat-free meat/poultry, beans and low-fat dairy sources. Drink plenty of fluids and water throughout the day to stay hydrated. Ask your doctor if you can take regular vitamin like A, D, E, and K, as it will be benefecial for you. You can have limited amounts of healthy polyunsaturated fat. Avoid smoking or drinking alcohol strictly because this can damage your pancreas.

Q. Can Panzynorm-N be given in children?

Yes, Panzynorm-N can be given to children. Just like adults, even children need to be given a sufficient amount of fluids while on treatment with Panzynorm-N. When giving it to infants aged 12 months or less, you can open the capsule and empty the contents directly into the infant’s mouth. Following this, you can feed breast milk or infant milk formula to your baby. However, do not mix the medicine directly into the formula or breast milk. Also, be cautious to see that the baby swallows the entire medicine and nothing is retained in the baby’s mouth, as it can cause irritation in the mouth.
