Each bottle of SUCRAID is supplied with a plastic screw cap which covers a dropper dispensing tip.

Remove the outer cap and measure out the required dose.

Reseal the bottle after each use by replacing and twisting the cap until tight.Write down the date the sealed bottle is first opened in the space provided on the bottle label.

Always throw away the bottle four weeks after first opening it because SUCRAID contains no preservatives.

For the same reason, you should rinse the measuring scoop with water after each time you finish using it.To get the full benefits of this medicine, it is very important to take SUCRAID as your doctor has prescribed.

The usual dosage is 1 to 2 milliliters (mL) with each meal or snack:1 mL = 1 full measuring scoop (28 drops from the bottle tip) and 2 mL = 2 full measuring scoops (56 drops from the bottle tip).Measure your dose with the measuring scoop provided (see Figure 1).

Do not use a kitchen teaspoon or other measuring device since it will not measure an accurate dose.Figure 1.

Measure dose with measuring scoop.Mix your dose in 2 to 4 ounces of water, milk, or infant formula (see Figure 2). SUCRAID should not be dissolved in or taken with fruit juice.NEVER HEAT SUCRAID OR PUT IT IN WARM OR HOT BEVERAGES OR INFANT FORMULA.

Clinical Trials:


Indications and Usage

SUCRAID (sacrosidase) oral solution is indicated as oral replacement therapy of the genetically determined sucrase deficiency, which is part of congenital sucrase-isomaltase deficiency.

(CSID)
Malnutrition -- disorder of nutrition due to unbalanced or insufficient diet or to defective assimilation or utilization of nutrients.

SUCRASE-ISOMALTASE DEFICIENCY, CONGENITAL -- characterized by the deficiency or absence of the enzymes sucrase and isomaltase existing at, and usually before birth; this enzyme complex (sucrase-isomaltase) assists in the breakdown of a certain sugar (ie, sucrose) and certain products of starch digestion (dextrins); only evident soon after birth when sucrose or starches, such as found in modified milk formulas with sucrose or polycose, are ingested by an affected infant, breast-fed infants or those on lactose-only formula manifest no symptoms until such time as sucrose (found in fruit juices, solid foods, and/or some medications) is introduced into the diet.

Contraindications
Patients known to be hypersensitive to yeast, yeast products, or glycerin (glycerol).
Hypersensitivity -- Altered reactivity to an antigen, which can result in pathologic reactions upon subsequent exposure to that particular antigen.

Warnings

Severe wheezing, 90 minutes after a second dose of sacrosidase, necessitated admission into the ICU for a 4-year old boy.

The wheezing was probably caused by sacrosidase.

He had asthma and was being treated with steroids. A skin test for sacrosidase was positive.

Other serious events have not been linked to SUCRAID.
