To avoid irritation of oral mucosa, do not chew PERTZYE or retain in the mouth.

Hyperuricemia may develop. Consider monitoring uric acid levels in patients with hyperuricemia, gout, or renal impairment.

There is theoretical risk of viral transmission with all pancreatic enzyme products including PERTZYE.

Exercise caution when administering pancrelipase to a patient with a known allergy to proteins of porcine origin.

Most common adverse reactions (≥ 10%) are: diarrhea, dyspepsia, and cough.
