Maybe: It depends on why you're taking pancrease (pancrelipase). If it's because your pancreas does not make enough pancrease (pancrelipase) on its own (pancreatic exocrine insufficiency), then you may also be deficient in lipase, so a combination of the two may be good for your condition. Hope this helps.
