Follow your doctor's advice in taking Zenpep. Do not take larger or smaller doses, and do not take Zenpep for any longer than your doctor says to take it. Follow the directions exactly as printed on the label.

Take Zenpep with a meal or snack and with a full glass of water or juice. Do not allow tablets or capsules to dissolve in your mouth because it may irritate the inside of your mouth. Swallow the pill whole. Never crush, chew, break or open an extended-release tablet or capsule. Doing so may release too much of the drug at once.

If swallowing is a problem, you may open a Zenpep capsule and sprinkle the medicine onto a spoon of pudding or applesauce. If you do, swallow the entire spoonful immediately and do NOT chew. Do not save the mixture for later use. Throw away the empty capsule.

Never allow the powder from a Zenpep capsule to be inhaled or allow it to touch your skin. This may irritate your nose and lungs.

You will get the most benefit by using Zenpep regularly, so refill your prescription before you run out of medicine. Zenpep is also occasionally used when the pancreas is removed.
