What is Lansoprazole?
Lansoprazole belongs to a group of drugs called proton pump inhibitors. Lansoprazole is used to treat symptoms of gastroesophageal reflux disease (GORD) and other conditions caused by excess stomach acid.
How does Lansoprazole work?
Lansoprazole works by decreasing the amount of acid produced in the stomach. It is usually excessive stomach acid that causes acid reflux and heartburn.
How to take?
Swallow the capsule whole with a glass of water. If you find the capsules difficult to swallow your doctor may advise you on alternative ways to take your medicine. Do not crush or chew these capsules or the content of an emptied capsule because this will stop them from working properly.
If you are taking Lansoprazole Capsules once a day, try to take it at the same time each day. You may get best results if you take Lansoprazole Capsules first thing in the morning.
