Pharmacotherapeutic group Digestive enzyme drug
ATX code: A09AA02.
Mikrazym® is pancreatin pellets in capsules. Composition of the product includes natural enzymes from animal pancreas – protease, lipase and amylase, providing digestion of proteins, fats and carbohydrates of food.
After taking Mikrazima® the capsule dissolves quickly in the stomach, releasing enteric-coated pancreatin pellets. Due to their small size pellets are quickly and evenly mixed with food and at the same time with the food lump easily penetrate into the duodenum and then into the small intestine where pancreatic enzymes are released and become active, promoting fast and complete digestion of proteins, fats and carbohydrates of food.
The rapid mixing of pancreatin pellets with the stomach contents, their uniform distribution in it, simultaneous passage with the chyme and also preservation of enzymes before their work in the intestine (due to the presence of enteric-soluble coating of pellets) provide higher digestive activity and maximum approaching of the drug to the natural process of digestion.
The enzymatic activity of Micrazyme® is manifested maximum 30 minutes after oral administration, which provides a rapid onset of effect.
After interaction with substrates protease, lipase and amylase in the lower intestine lose activity and are excreted with the intestinal contents. Micrasym® is not absorbed from the gastrointestinal tract and acts only in the intestinal lumen.

How to take, the dosage
The dose of the drug is selected individually depending on age, severity of symptoms, and dietary composition. The dose is adjusted with the registered drugs Micrazyme® 10,000 units and Micrazyme® 25,000 units.
The capsules are taken orally with plenty of non-alkaline liquid (water, fruit juices). If a single dose of the drug is more than 1 capsule, half of the total number of capsules should be taken immediately before a meal, and the other half with a meal. If the single dose is 1 capsule, it should be taken with a meal.
If swallowing is difficult (e.g., in children or the elderly), the capsule may be opened and the drug taken directly in pellets, previously mixed with liquid or liquid foods (pH< 5.0) that do not require chewing (apple puree, yogurt). Grinding or chewing the pellets or adding them to foods with a pH higher than 5.5 will destroy their gastric juice-protective shell. Any mixture of pellets with food or liquid should be taken immediately after preparation. The allowable dose for children under 1.5 years of age is 50,000 IU/day; over 1.5 years of age, 100,000 IU/day.
The duration of pancreatin can vary from a few days (digestive disorders) to several months or years (long-term replacement therapy).
Pancreatine replacement therapy for various types of exocrine pancreatic insufficiency.
The dose is chosen individually and depends on the severity of external pancreatic secretory insufficiency, the individual eating habits, and the age of the patient.
Steatorrhea (more than 15 g of fat in stools per day).
If there is diarrhea, weight loss, and no effect of diet therapy, 25,000 IU of lipase is prescribed with each meal. If necessary and if tolerated well, the dose is increased to 30,000 to 35,000 IU of lipase per meal.
A further dose escalation in most cases does not improve outcomes and requires reassessment of the diagnosis, reduction of the fat content of the diet and/or additional prescribing of proton pump inhibitors.
In mild steatorrhea that is not accompanied by diarrhea and weight loss, 10,000 IU to 25,000 IU of lipase per administration is indicated.
The initial estimated dose for children under 4 years of age is 1,000 IU of lipase per kilogram of body weight at each meal; for children over 4 years of age, 500 IU of lipase per kilogram of body weight at each meal. The dose should be chosen individually depending on the disease severity, steatorrhea severity and nutritive status.
The maintenance dose for most patients should not exceed 10 000 IU of lipase per kilogram of body weight per day.
In concomitant use of pancreatin with iron preparations, iron absorption may be reduced.
Children and adults receiving pancreatin therapy at high doses for a long time should be monitored by a specialist.
Individual intolerance to pancreatin or individual components of the drug. Acute pancreatitis, exacerbation of chronic pancreatitis.
Allergic reactions to the drug components are possible. When using high doses of the drug, diarrhea, nausea, constipation, discomfort in the epigastric region are rarely observed. During long-term use in high doses, hyperuricosuria and hyperuricemia may develop.
Symptoms: increased uric acid in the urine (hyperuricuria) and blood (hyperuricemia). In children – constipation.
Treatment: withdrawal of the drug, symptomatic therapy.
Interactions with other medicinal products
In concomitant use of pancreatin with preparations of iron may decrease the absorption of the latter.
There are no data on the potential risks of using pancreatin during pregnancy and lactation, so the drug should be prescribed to pregnant women and nursing mothers only if the expected effects of therapy outweigh the possible risks.
