It is used for treatment of:
1) Ulcers of the stomach and duodenum, and NSAID-induced ulcers
2) Helicobacter pylori infection, alongside antibiotics (adjunctive treatment), treatment to kill H. pylori causing ulcers or other problems involves using two other drugs besides lansoprazole known as "triple therapy", and involves taking twice daily for 10 or 14 days lansoprazole, amoxicillin, and clarithromycin
3) Gastroesophageal reflux disease
4) Zollinger-Ellison syndrome
1. What conditions does lansoprazole treat?
Ans - It is used to treat gastroesophageal reflux disease, heartburn, acid reflux, and indigestion (GORD). Additionally, stomach ulcers are treated and prevented using lansoprazole. The rare disorder known as Zollinger-Ellison syndrome, which is brought on by a tumour in the pancreas or gut, can occasionally be treated with lansoprazole.
2. What distinguishes lansoprazole from omeprazole?
Ans - Background: Both lansoprazole (LAN) and omeprazole (OME) efficiently treat esophagitis to comparable degrees, however LAN works more quickly to relieve gastroesophageal reflux symptoms. The impact of the two proton pump inhibitors on acid reflux and stomach acidity, however, has not been directly compared in any published studies.
3. What are the lansoprazole precautions?
Ans - If you experience convulsions (seizures), a rapid, erratic, or irregular heartbeat, tetany (muscle spasms), tremors, or unusual weariness or weakness, consult your doctor straight once. This medication may make fundic gland polyps more likely for you (abnormal tissue growth in the upper part of your stomach).
4. Is taking lansoprazole at night preferable to taking it in the morning?
Ans - Lansoprazole is typically used once daily in the morning. You can take it twice a day, in the morning and in the evening, if you have a severe illness. The optimal time to take lansoprazole is 30 minutes before a meal or snack. With water or juice, swallow pills and capsules whole.
