Pancrelipase is dosed by lipase units.

  • give your infant enough liquid to swallow the pancrelipase capsule contents or the food mixture, and 
  • look into your infant’s mouth to ensure all the pancrealipase has been swallowed 

If you forget to take a dose of pancrelipase, call your doctor or wait until your next meal; and take your usual number of capsules. Do not make up for missed doses.
