The active ingredient in Lansoprazole is the ingredient with the same name. Lansoprazole belongs to a group of medicines called ‘proton pump inhibitors’, and is used to reduce acid in the stomach.

Proton pump inhibitors such as Lansoprazole works by reducing the amount of acid produced by a certain type of cells called proton pumps. It is primarily prescribed to treat acid reflux (GORD) and different types of ulcers in the stomach and gut.

In adults, Lansoprazole may be prescribed to treat different types of ulcers, including ulcers in the upper part of the intestine, ulcers infected with bacteria and ulcers caused by medicines called NSAIDs (Non-Steroidal Anti-Inflammatory Drugs). Examples of NSAIDs are ibuprofen, aspirin and diclofenac.

Can I reduce the risk of getting side effects?

You should always read the patient information leaflet thoroughly before use as this can help reduce the risk of side effects and interactions between medicines. Below are a few things you can do:

  • While filling in the medical questionnaire, remember to include any other medicines you are taking.
