Frequently Asked Questions

What Is Lansoprazole? 

Proton pump inhibitor (PPI) medication lansoprazole 30 mg is used to treat disorders relating to the stomach, particularly when they are brought on by an excess of stomach acid. It is advised as a treatment for GERD (gastroesophageal reflux disease), indigestion, gastric and duodenal ulcers, and erosive esophagitis.

In order to cure stomach ulcers, this medication is used with certain antibiotics like clarithromycin or amoxicillin. Additionally, ZES, or Zollinger-Ellison syndrome, which causes an excess of stomach acid, can be treated with it.

What Is Lansoprazole Used For? 

Proton pump inhibitors, such as the anti-ulcer drug lansoprazole, are also known as PPIs. It functions by preventing the stomach’s overproduction of acid. Medications from the PPI class are used to treat diseases like ulcers, GERD, Zollinger-Ellison syndrome, and hyperacidity. Like other PPI medications, Lansoprazole works by preventing the enzymes that cause acid to be produced within the stomach walls. The generation of acid is significantly reduced by successfully blocking these enzymes, allowing the oesophagus and stomach to recover.

What Are The Benefits Of Lansoprazole? 

Agonizing stomach pain from ulcers or excessive acidity might make it difficult for you to carry out your everyday activities. In these situations, lansoprazole is advantageous since it aids in providing relief. It aids in lowering stomach acid production, which relieves symptoms and suffering for patients. These characteristics of Lansoprazole allow them to resume their regular activities and perform successfully.

How Do I Use Lansoprazole? 

The lansoprazole tablet should be taken with water. Never chew, gnaw, or break it. The contents of the capsule can be blended with apple or orange juice and then swallowed whole if you are unable to swallow it. The granules shouldn’t be chewed.

Open the Lansoprazole capsule and combine its contents with about 40 mL of apple juice if you need to administer the capsule via the NGT or nasogastric tube. Leave out any more liquids. Onto the NGT tube, pour the mixture. Then begin flushing the combination with more juice to rinse out all the medication and deliver it to the patient’s stomach.

Be cautious to fully wash your hands before handling the drug.

What Is The Proper Dosage For Lansoprazole? 

Your doctor should provide guidance on the recommended lansoprazole dosage. This is to guarantee that your current ailment is treated effectively. GERD, Zollinger-Ellison syndrome, stomach ulcers, and hyperacidity may all be treated with lansoprazole. You are discouraged from choosing on your own to take a low dose or use more than what is recommended. Before consuming any medication, always seek medical advice.

Adults 18 years of age and older should take 15 mg once daily for 4 weeks if they have duodenal ulcers.

Adults 18 years of age and above who have been diagnosed with GERD or (Gastroesophageal Reflux Disease) are advised to take 15 mg once daily for the next 8 weeks.

The recommended dose for people who are 18 years of age and older who want to treat severe oesophagitis and stomach ulcers is 30 mg every four to eight weeks.

The suggested dosage for people with Zollinger-Ellison Syndrome, who are 18 years of age and older, is 60 mg per day. The doctor will eventually modify this dosage based on the patient’s medical response. Patients with Zollinger-Ellison Syndrome may occasionally be instructed to take a 180 mg Lansoprazole pill.

Patients who are unable to consume Lansoprazole pills orally may instead administer the drug intravenously (intravenously). The recommended Lansoprazole intravenous dosage is 30 mg, administered continuously for 7 days.

Inform your doctor right away so that he can evaluate your situation if your medical condition does not get better after taking Lansoprazole or if symptoms continue. Never discontinue taking a drug on your own without first talking to your doctor.

Because food slows down the absorption of lansoprazole, it is advised to take it first thing in the morning, preferably 30 minutes before eating.

How Long Does Lansoprazole Take To Work? 

The time it takes Lansoprazole to start working varies on the disease it is being used to treat. Within the first few days of using lansoprazole, your symptoms of heartburn and indigestion may be completely gone.

Nevertheless, depending on the circumstances, you might occasionally need to continue taking lansoprazole for a few weeks. Some patients might need to take lansoprazole for an extended period of time in order to manage their symptoms or stop their disease from recurring.
