Initially, post pancreatic surgery in '08, I was moderatically enzymes deficient but had no negative digestive symptoms plus didn't test low for any vitamins or minerals.

This year, I tested severely (30) deficient (but still didn't test low for any minerals or vitamins). Nevretheless, I was started on Creon 24,000 unit CPEP #450 - Generic Name: Pancrelipase (Lipase-Protease-Amylase) without any problems in April.

I'm suppose to take three capsules 'with' meals and two 'with' snacks daily. However, sometimes I take the capsules prior to the meal or snack, sometimes at the midway point, and sometimes immediately right after finishing without any apparent difference.

However, again, my prescription says take WITH meals.
