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 orodispersible tablets 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 dose can alleviate symptoms for the whole day. The orodispersible tablets are effective in patients who find it difficult to swallow tablets and capsules as the melt in the mouth and can be chewed.
Recommended dose for Acid Reflux:- ONE TABLET to be dispersed in the mouth ONCE DAILY preferably 1 hour before food.
Always seek advice if you have taken too much Lansoprazole from a doctor or pharmacist.
Like all medicines, this medicine can cause side effects, although not everybody gets them. If diarrhoea occurs during the treatment with Lansoprazole orodispersible tablets contact your doctor immediately, as Lansoprazole orodispersible tablets have been associated with a small increase in infectious diarrhoea.
