Lansoprazole 15mg Capsules

Lansoprazole is an effective medicine licensed for use in acid reflux.

It belongs to the group of medicines known as PPIs. PPIs work by reducing the amount of acid produced by the stomach and as a result provide relief from the symptoms of acid reflux such as indigestion and heartburn.

Lansoprazole can reduce stomach acid by up to 80%, providing all day relief from just a single capsule.

What is Lansoprazole?

Lansoprazole is a fast and long acting treatment available for acid reflux. It belongs to the group of medicines known as "Proton Pump Inhibitors" or "PPI" for short. Lansoprazole is particularly useful in patients taking medicines that are metabolised by the liver as it tends not to interfere with how they work.

How do PPI's work?

PPIs work by stopping the stomach from producing excess acid. The stomach does this via the "Proton Pump", which is the final stage in stomach acid production. PPIs block the Proton pump and stop the release of acid. Lansoprazole can block the action of the proton pump for up to 24 hours, providing long term symptomatic relief for acid reflux. 

Taking Lansoprazole

Lansoprazole capsules can be taken up to twice a day but a single morning dose usually is enough to provide all day relief. The capsules are enteric coated to bypass breakdown in the stomach. This ensures they bypass breakdown in the stomach so they can have their maximum effect all day. Lansoprazole is also available in an orodispersible tablet that melts in the mouth. This is particularly useful for those patients that have difficulty swallowing capsules.

Other uses in adults:

- Gastro-oesophageal reflux disease’ (GORD). This is where acid from the stomach escapes into the gullet (the tube which connects your throat to your stomach) causing pain, inflammation and heartburn.
- Stomach and Duodenal ulcers
- Ulcers caused by the H. Pylori infection.
- NSAID induced ulcers 
- Excess stomach acid caused by Zollinger-Ellison syndrome

Lansoprazole is an effective, long lasting treatment for acid reflux. A single capsule daily can provide relief throughout 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.
