What is Lansoprazole

Lansoprazole is a conventional medication used to avoid and treat indigestion, heartburn, stomach ulcers and erosive oesophagitis. It comes in the shape of tablets and capsules, containing lansoprasole as the active ingredient.

How effective is Lansoprazole?

As a proton pump inhibitor drug, lansoprazole is effective in managing heartburn, abdominal pain, and other types of gastroesophageal reflux disease (GERD). Usually, the drug takes effect after 2 to 3 days of consumption, but can also take up to a month, depending on one's dosage. When taken in combination of certain drugs, such as sucralfate or rifampin, lansoprazole's effectiveness reduces. As such, it is advised to consult your doctor or pharmacist before beginning treatment.

Can I buy Lansoprazole online?

Ideally, lansoprazole requires a prescription, especially when taken to treat complex gut diseases such as intestinal ulcers and Zollinger-Ellison syndrome. As such, be sure to book an appointment with a health expert at Click Pharmacy to discuss the appropriate usage of this drug.

Nonetheless, over-the-counter lansoprazole for treating occasional heartburns can be conveniently bought from a trusted online pharmacy. It is purchased in packs that are sent directly to you by Next Day Delivery. 

How does Lansoprazole work?

Lansoprazole is falling under the proton pump inhibitors (PPI) class of drugs. Generally, these types of drugs are the most potent acid secretion inhibitors across all categories of drugs. Lansoprazole, like all PPIs, targets the cells responsible for secreting gastric acid and blocks them, resulting in reduced production of the acid. 

During consumption, lansoprazole is in its inactive form, which is a neutrally charged state, thus can readily pass other cell membranes and reach into the acidic intracellular membranes. The acidic environment activates the active ingredient benzimidazole, irreversibly deactivating the production of gastric acid.

What dose should I choose?

A single pack of lansoprazole contains 28 capsules, each having 15 or 30 mg of the active ingredient lansoprazole. 

The usual dosage for an adult is 15 mg, taken daily for at least 4 weeks. Of course, this depends on the type of condition being treated. 

How should I take Lansoprazole? 

Lansoprazole is taken orally as delayed-release oral capsule or delayed-release orally disintegrating tablet. These two forms of lansoprazole are designed in a way such that they do not release medication until they pass through your stomach. While taking them, it is advised that you refrain from chewing or crushing the tablets/capsules. 

In case you have any problem with swallowing the drug in whole, you can sprinkle the capsule's content on soft foods such as yoghurt or applesauce, ingest the mixture immediately, without chewing. Alternatively, you can stir the material in a small amount of water (2 ounces) and drink right away. Keep in mind that the mixture shouldn't be prepared ahead of time for later consumption since doing so destroy's the potency of the drug.

Regardless of the patient's age, lansoprazole should be taken 30 minutes before a meal or snack. This is to allow the medication to be absorbed into the body system since food slows down the absorption. Again, how frequent the drug should be taken depends on the gastric condition being treated. The severe ones may require taking medicine twice a day, while the less-severe ones can be treated by a single dose daily. Also, if symptoms persist after 14 days of consumption, consider consulting a doctor. 

What are the side effects of Lansoprazole? 

While most patients are tolerant to lansoprazole, some may experience mild side effects such as headache, nausea, constipation and abdominal pain, which fade away with time. However, if these symptoms persist or become more severe, talk to your doctor. 

 Serious side effects that should warrant a visit to the doctor include:

  • Severe diarrhoea

  • Bone fractures

  • Pain around the kidneys

  • Cutaneous lupus erythematosus symptoms, such as red skin rashes and scaly skin

  • Poor muscular coordination

  • Seizures

  • Trouble breathing

  • Fast heart rate 

In most cases, the above serious side effects are common among patients who have taken lansoprazole for periods exceeding 3 months, since it decreases the absorption of minerals and vitamins. 

Should you experience any of these symptoms, don't hesitate to consult a health specialist at Click Pharmacy for immediate assistance.
