Lansoprazole is employed in the treatment of specific stomach and esophagus issues, including acid reflux and ulcers. It also aids in the healing of acid-induced damage to the stomach and esophagus, assists in preventing ulcers, and may contribute to the prevention of esophageal cancer. This medication alleviates symptoms such as heartburn, difficulty swallowing, and cough. Lansoprazole belongs to a category of drugs known as proton pump inhibitors (PPIs). Its mechanism involves reducing the production of acid in the stomach.

Uses and Dosage

Take this medication orally before a meal as directed by your doctor, usually once daily. The prescribed dosage and duration of treatment depend on your medical condition and how you respond to the medication. Children’s dosage is determined by age and weight.

Handle the tablet with dry hands. Place it on your tongue and allow it to disintegrate, which typically takes less than 1 minute. Swallow the remaining particles with or without water. Do not crush, chew, or break the tablet or particles.

If swallowing the tablet is challenging, you may dissolve it in water and take the mixture orally using an oral syringe.

Place a tablet in the syringe and draw up the appropriate amount of water for your dose (4 milliliters for a 15-milligram tablet, or 10 milliliters for a 30-milligram tablet). Shake the syringe gently to break apart the tablet, then swallow the liquid within 15 minutes. To ensure you’ve taken the entire dose, refill the syringe with water (2 milliliters for the 15-milligram tablet, or 5 milliliters for the 30-milligram tablet), shake again, and swallow all the liquid. Do not prepare the liquid mixture in advance for later use, as it may compromise the effectiveness of the drug.

If administering this medication through a tube into the stomach (nasogastric tube), seek detailed instructions from your healthcare professional on proper mixing and administration.

If necessary, antacids can be taken alongside this medication. If also using sucralfate, take lansoprazole at least 30 minutes before sucralfate.

Take this medication consistently to derive the maximum benefit, and to aid in remembrance, administer it at the same time daily. Continue the prescribed treatment duration even if symptoms improve.

Inform your doctor if your condition persists or worsens. The risk of side effects increases over time, so consult your doctor regarding the recommended duration for taking this medication.
