What happens if I take too many enzymes?

There is no maximum dose of enzyme supplements for people with pancreatic cancer. Any enzymes that your body doesn’t need will pass through you. If you think you’ve taken too many, make sure you drink plenty of fluids, and take your enzyme supplements at your next meal as usual. If you feel unwell, speak to your doctor or nurse.
