Important Safety Information for Sucraid® (sacrosidase) Oral Solution

  • Sucraid may cause a serious allergic reaction. If you notice any swelling or have difficulty breathing, get emergency help right away.
  • Sucraid does not break down some sugars that come from the digestion of starch. You may need to restrict the amount of starch in your diet. Your doctor will tell you if you should restrict starch in your diet.
  • Tell your doctor if you are allergic to, have ever had a reaction to, or have ever had difficulty taking yeast, yeast products, papain, or glycerin (glycerol).
  • Tell your doctor if you have diabetes, as your blood glucose levels may change if you begin taking Sucraid. Your doctor will tell you if your diet or diabetes medicines need to be changed.
  • Some patients treated with Sucraid may have worse abdominal pain, vomiting, nausea, or diarrhea. Constipation, difficulty sleeping, headache, nervousness, and dehydration have also occurred in patients treated with Sucraid. Check with your doctor if you notice these or other side effects.
  • Sucraid has not been tested to see if it works in patients with secondary (acquired) sucrase deficiency.
  • NEVER HEAT SUCRAID OR PUT IT IN WARM OR HOT BEVERAGES OR INFANT FORMULA. Do not mix Sucraid with fruit juice or take it with fruit juice. Take Sucraid as prescribed by your doctor. Normally, half the dose of Sucraid is taken before a meal or snack and the other half is taken during the meal or snack.
  • Sucraid should be refrigerated at 36°F-46°F (2°C-8°C) and should be protected from heat and light.
