Mom using Creons for first time

Postby lisa42 » Thu May 22, 2014 10:31 am

Please help - mom was prescribed Creons yesterday so took her first one before her dinner yesterday evening . She's been in pain all night, and had terrible wind , and can't cope this morning so has had to go back to bed. Is this normal or is something wrong?

I have personally had no negatives from Creons over the last 18 months, but I know others have. Give Di/Jeni a call on the support number and I am sure they will be able to help.

Thanks Steve - Lisa, we can certainly have a chat about this. If you call today, you will get through to Dianne.

Kind regards,

Jeni.
