If you are taking any of the following pharmaceutical drugs and you are beginning to take pancreatic enzymes you need to know the following facts:
Blood Pressure Medication
If you are taking blood pressure lowering drugs and you begin to take pancreatic enzymes you need to monitor your blood pressure every single day.
As you increase the dosage of pancreatic enzymes one of the side benefits you will receive is your blood pressure will begin to go down. Please work with your physician to lower the dosage of the pharmaceutical, which will not be needed at the same dosage that it was when you were not taking pancreatic enzymes. This happens because pancreatic enzymes clean up the foreign matter that is in your bloodstream. It happens gradually, so you need to keep an eye on it and work with your physician.
When you present your findings to your physician of the blood pressure changes he will be undoubtedly surprised. Your pharmacist can provide a device called a Tablet Cutter to cut the whole pills into pieces.
Physicians generally do not want you to take this kind of supplement because, well the reason is obvious.
Diabetes Control Medication
If you are taking drugs to control diabetes you need to monitor your blood insulin every single day. This is doubly important when you begin to take pancreatic enzymes because, as you increase the dosage of your pancreatic enzymes, one of the side benefits is your blood insulin levels will begin to go down.
Often during the first two months of taking pancreatic enzymes you will see tremendous changes in your numbers, so keep a close eye on it.
Please work with your physician to lower the dosage of the pharmaceutical, which will not be needed at the same dosage that it was when you were not taking pancreatic enzymes. The pancreas is responsible for issuing insulin to moderate blood sugar levels and, as you begin to heal, the pancreas begins to improve its functions. Your pharmacist can provide a device called a Tablet Cutter to cut the whole pills into pieces.
Pain Control Medication
If you are taking drugs to control pain you may need to adjust or even eliminate them after beginning to take pancreatic enzymes. As your body begins to heal and work better the inflammation that's been triggering the pain, or contributing to it, will be reduced and you will need to adjust the amount or frequency of the medication.
Taking coffee enemas will also assist in getting rid of the pain since the pain seems to be, in many cases, directly related to liver toxin overflow.
Medications in General
As you begin your regime of taking pancreatic enzymes, and you notice any changes in your reaction to any medication (prescribed or over-the-counter) your physician has prescribed for you, please work with him or her to make adjustments when necessary, as many of them can be hazardous to your health if you stop taking them “cold turkey.”
