User Comments about Creon
17 Oct 2020 I took it 1 time and 5 hours later my blood pressure spiked real high 190/105, I got strong heart palpatations, chills, severe headache that rivaled any migraine I ever had. Extreme upset stomach and nausea. When I got out of bed to go to the restroom, I was very off balance when trying to walk, having to lean on things as I walked. I finally gave in to the nausea and vomited everything including the meal I had when I took my one and only capsule 5 hours earlier. Within 30 minutes of vomiting, everything returned to normal, including blood pressure, and I had just vomited my evening blood pressure medication. Headache was gone without having to take anything.

26 Feb 2016 After undergoing a Islet cell transplant which was successful for 3 years until the nurse forgot to order my anti-rejection drug from US I gradually was weaned off my drugs. I subsequently ,when back on insulin, developed a bad rash to which tests could not find the cause. Was put on Creon as had d..... very badly. It has helped immensely and have gained weight etc and feeling much better. Now doctor says I have Hyperthyroidism (Graves) and was wondering if Creon had contributed??

11 Nov 2014 I have only been using Creon for a week. My blood pressure has gone up fairly high. I was prescribed Creon as the diaareha I have has shown because of a lack of dijestive enzenes in my pancreas.

17 Oct 2020 I was prescribed for the same condition. My blood pressure shot up really high, I got chills and severe headache, then vomited and everything ended and I was back to feeling fine. That was the one and only time I took it.

12 Jun 2011 Creon is the only thing that works. Drawback is that I experienced frontal hairloss and thinness. However, I was also undergoing Efudex treatment at the same time so that also could have been the cause of the alopecia.
