Lansoprazole is an effective medicine that targets symptoms of acid reflux, heartburn, indigestion and gastro-oesophageal reflux disease (GORD). Its active ingredients are Proton Pump Inhibitors (PPIs), which work by preventing the body’s production of acid in the stomach. 

With less acid produced in the stomach, this decreases the ability for acid to reflux upwards through the respiratory tract. Lansoprazole tablets are available in doses 15mg and 30mg depending on the severity of acid reflux symptoms. 

Lansoprazole tablets are most effective when the dose is taken regularly once a day.

  • What Is the Difference Between Lansoprazole and Over-the-Counter PPIs?

    Lansoprazole contains the active ingredient PPI (proton pump inhibitor). There are some over-the-counter PPI medicines available without a prescription, but these contain a lower dose than prescription PPIs such as Lansoprazole. Both Lansoprazole 15mg and Lansoprazole 30mg will often contain higher PPI doses than over-the-counter alternatives. 

  • Are PPIs Safe?

    Long-term use can cause severe PPI side effects. Kidney disease, bacterial infections and bone fractures are some of the PPIs’ most serious side effects. You should only use this medication long term if advised by a healthcare professional.

  • How Do You Take a PPI?

    PPIs should be taken on an empty stomach, about 30 minutes to one hour before eating breakfast.

  • How long can you safely take Lansoprazole?

    You should not take Lansoprazole for more than 14 consecutive days, and should not take a course of Lansoprazole more frequently than every 4 months. You should only ever take alternative Lansoprazole courses if otherwise advised by your doctor.

  • Can I drink alcohol whilst taking Lansoprazole?

    Drinking alcohol whilst taking Lansoprazole can worsen the symptoms of acid reflux, which works against what Lansoprazole tablets are intended to treat. It is therefore recommended that you avoid drinking alcohol when taking Lansoprazole.

  • Where can I buy Lansoprazole?

    Lansoprazole is not available over the counter, and must be prescribed by a doctor or pharmacist either online or at a pharmacy. You can obtain a Lansoprazole prescription through our online pharmacy, simply start an assessment with our pharmacist to request a prescription.

  • When to take Lansoprazole

    Lansoprazole should be taken regularly once a day for the full course of your prescription. It is recommended that you take Lansoprazole in the morning each day. If your prescription is for two tablets daily, take one tablet in the morning and one in the evening. 

    It is advisable to take Lansoprazole tablets around 30 minutes before eating to allow the medication to enter your system effectively.
