Viokace is a prescribed medication administered alongside a proton pump inhibitor (PPI) to enhance food digestion in adult patients with chronic pancreatitis or those who have undergone pancreas removal surgery. 

Viokace belongs to the enzyme medication class and consists of a blend of digestive enzymes derived from pig pancreas, including lipases, proteases, and amylases.  

Viokace functions as a substitute for natural pancreatic enzymes, aiding in the reduction of fatty bowel movements and enhancing nutrition by breaking down fats, proteins, and starches into smaller components that the intestines can absorb. 

Uses and Dosage 

Before starting treatment with Viokace and with every prescription refill, carefully review the medication guide and patient information leaflet provided by your pharmacist. If you have any questions or concerns, contact your doctor or pharmacist for guidance. 

Viokace dosage is prescribed according to the patient’s medical condition, diet, weight, and treatment response. 

Typically, this medication is taken with every meal and snack, along with a PPI medication, as prescribed by the doctor. If you have frequent meals or snacks, ensure you stay within your daily prescribed dose. 

Viokace tablets should be ingested whole, without crushing or chewing, and taken with ample water to prevent any medication residue in the mouth and minimize the risk of mucosal irritation. 

To achieve the best results, adhere to your doctor or nutritionist’s instructions and take this medication consistently as prescribed. 

Inform your doctor if your condition persists or deteriorates, and do not discontinue the medication without their approval.
