Sometimes, due to cystic fibrosis (CF) or other conditions, your pancreas does not make the amount of enzymes you need to properly break down food. ZENPEP is a prescription medicine for people who cannot digest food normally because their pancreas does not make enough enzymes. ZENPEP may help your body use fats, proteins, and sugars from food. ZENPEP contains a mixture of digestive enzymes (lipases, proteases, and amylases) from pig pancreas. ZENPEP is safe and effective in children.
ZENPEP is a prescription treatment called enzyme replacement therapy that is taken together with meals.
Your doctor or your child’s doctor may prescribe ZENPEP to help manage exocrine pancreatic insufficiency (EPI) due to CF or other conditions.
To replace enzymes the pancreas can’t provide, each ZENPEP capsule contains a mix of enzymes:
Once the enzymes inside the ZENPEP capsules are released in the body, they help digest food.
