Lansoprazole is part of a group of medicines called "proton pump inhibitors" or PPIs for short. PPIs reduce the amount of acid that your stomach produces and thus reduce symptoms of heartburn, indigestion and reflux associated with this. Lansoprazole capsules are used to treat a number of conditions.
Your doctor may prescribe Lansoprazole orodispersible tablets for the following indications:
Lansoprazole is a convenient and effective medication to use for reflux. A single daily capsule can alleviate symptoms for the whole day.
Recommended dose for Acid Reflux:- ONE CAPSULE to be taken ONCE DAILY preferably 1 hour before food.
Always seek advice if you have taken too much Lansoprazole from a doctor or pharmacist.
If you have any further questions on the use of this medicine, ask your doctor, pharmacist or nurse.
Like all medicines, this medicine can cause side effects, although not everybody gets them.
