What is Sucraid?
Sucraid is an FDA (U.S. Food and Drug Administration) approved medication manufactured by QOL Medical, LLC. Sucraid is a yeast-based enzyme replacement therapy of the enzyme sucrase, which is normally in the small intestine in the body. Sucrase helps the body break down and process certain sucrose (table sugar) during digestion. In people who lack the sucrase enzyme, sugar can pass into the intestines where it can interact with bacteria. This can cause symptoms of CSID, such as bloating, gas, stomach pain, and watery diarrhea.
Sucraid is used for the treatment of symptoms associated with sucrose gastrointestinal symptoms in pediatric patients as young as 5 months of age, which is part of congenital sucrase-isomaltase deficiency (CSID). Sucrose is a complex sugar called a disaccharide, created by the combination of two simple sugars (monosaccharides), glucose and fructose.
What doses of Sucraid are available?
Sucraid is available as an oral solution, in the following doses: 8500 international units (I.U.) in 1mL.
The recommended dosage of Sucraid is 1 or 2 mL or 1 or 2 full measuring scoops taken orally with each meal or snack, diluted with 2 to 4 ounces of water, milk, or infant formula. Sucraid may interact with other drugs. Tell your doctor about all medications and supplements you use. Do not mix Sucraid with fruit juice or take it with fruit juice.
Please read the prescribing information on the package insert and always speak with your healthcare provider about any changes to your dose so they can monitor and evaluate your condition.
