Drug Description


Pancrease MT 16 is prescribed for patients with insufficient production or release of pancreatic enzymes into the small intestine, typically due to chronic pancreatitis, cystic fibrosis, pancreatic cancer, post-pancreatectomy, or post-gastrointestinal bypass surgery. 

Pancrease MT 16 contains three enzymes: lipase, protease, and amylase. These enzymes assist in restoring necessary enzymes in the body when the pancreas is deficient, facilitating the breakdown and digestion of fats, starch, and proteins in food. 

Uses and Dosage 

Prior to initial use and with each prescription refill, carefully read the accompanying patient information leaflet for Pancrease MT 16. If you have any questions about a particular section, seek clarification from your doctor or pharmacist. 

The appropriate dosage of Pancrease MT 16 dosage varies per individual depending on their medical conditions, dietary habits, body weight, and treatment response. 

Typically, Pancrease MT 16 is taken along with a meal or snack as prescribed by the doctor. 

The capsules should be ingested whole with a full glass of water. Avoid crushing, chewing, or holding them in the mouth to prevent potential irritation. 

If having trouble swallowing the tablet whole, it may be opened, and mix the contents with a small amount of liquid or soft, non-chewable food (e.g., room-temperature applesauce). Swallow the mixture promptly without chewing and follow with a glass of water or juice to ensure complete ingestion. Do not save the mixture for future use. 

Avoid mixing the capsule’s contents with alkaline substances (e.g., milk, ice cream, tea). Consult your doctor or pharmacist for guidance on foods or liquids (e.g., infant formula, breast milk) to avoid when mixing. 

When preparing the mixture, prevent inhalation or skin contact with the powder from the Pancrease MT 16 capsule, as it may lead to irritation, especially in the nose and lungs. 

To achieve the best results, follow the precise instructions for taking Pancrease MT 16. Avoid exceeding the prescribed daily capsule intake, as taking more will not expedite improvement and may elevate the risk of side effects.
