What is Sucraid used for?

Sucraid oral solution is used as a replacement for patients who do not have the enzymes needed to properly break down and absorb sucrose (table sugar) and isomaltose (a type of starch) in the intestines.

Who should not take Sucraid?

   You should not take Sucraid if you are allergic to:
  • Yeast
  • Yeast products
  • Glycerin (glycerol)

Special Warning(s) for Sucraid: 

Sucraid may cause an allergic reaction in some people. Your doctor may have you take your first and second doses while in the office to observe how your body reacts, or you may be tested in advance to check your sensitivity to the drug. At any time, if you notice any swelling of the face, wheezing or difficulty breathing, stop taking Sucraid and seek emergency medical help right away.

General Precautions with Sucraid:

 

Tell your health care provider if you are allergic to or have ever had a reaction to yeast, yeast products, or glycerin (glycerol). If you have diabetes, your health care provider will want to discuss adjustments to your diet plan since using Sucraid can cause sucrose (table sugar) to be absorbed by the body and cause changes in blood sugar levels.

Your health care provider may want you to limit starch in your diet to help reduce symptoms even more.
