The most frequently reported adverse reactions to pancrelipase-containing products are gastrointestinal in nature, which may include nausea, vomiting, bloating, cramping, constipation or diarrhea. Less frequently, allergic-type reactions have also been observed. Extremely high doses of exogenous pancreatic enzymes have been reported to be associated with hyperuricosuria and hyperuricemia. High strength pancrelipase preparation (i.e., those labeled as containing more than 20,000 lipase units per capsule) has been associated with colonic strictures.
