I was just diagnosed with stones in my pancreas (non cancer, whew!). They are causing my pancreas to not digest all my foods and are ordering Creon to take 3 with every meal and 1 with each snack for the rest of my life (I am a young 71). Has anyone taken it and what can you tell me? As of yet the pharmacy has ordered it and I'm not sure of the cost but saw that 90 pills were retailed at 700.00. I do have Medicare, Anthem Blue Cross and United Healthcare for prescriptions with a Walgreens plan. Appreciate any and all info. ## I have been on Creon 36,000 lipase.

Got the abdeks multivitamin bubblegum tablets at walgreens. I think it's a generic Source CF.. the wholesale info is on their site. Has anyone else tried this? ## I got the libertas multi with ABDEK through CF services Pharmacy 800.541.4959. The bubblegum chewables are closest to source CF and less expensive than aquadeks. Our friend also said these are available free of charge on creon care forward program ## This is one multivitamin I haven't tried yet. I'm curious to know what the specific list of ingredients are and what sources they might be derived from, if either of you happen to have that information?...
