Drug Information:
Sucraid is a yeast-based enzyme that replaces an enzyme called sucrase which is normally produced in the body. Sucrase helps the body breakdown and process certain sugars during digestion. In people who lack the sucrase enzyme, sugar can pass into the intestines where it can interact with bacteria. This can cause bloating, gas, stomach pain, and watery diarrhea. Sucraid is used to treat sucrase deficiency that occurs in people with congenital sucrase-iSomaltase deficiency (CSID). CSID is a genetic enzyme deficiency and this medicine will not cure this condition. Learn more
