Details

What is Zoton FasTab?

Zoton FasTab is a medication used to treat heartburn and other symptoms which can occur as part of gastro-oesophageal reflux disease (GORD), also known as acid reflux disease. The tablets are able to reduce the levels of stomach acid in the body, which not only lessens GORD symptoms but also decreases the risk of getting stomach ulcers. Zoton FasTab is available as dis-solvable orodispersible tablets in two strengths and is made by Pfizer.

How does Zoton FasTab work?

Zoton tablets contain an active ingredient called lansoprazole, which is classed as a proton pump inhibitor. This means that the ingredient is able to interfere with the function of proton pumps, which are located in the stomach and crucial in producing stomach acid. By reducing the activity of the pumps, less stomach acid is produced and this helps to ease heartburn and other symptoms associated with acid reflux.

How is Zoton FasTab taken?

There is more than one way that you can take Zoton tablets when prescribed them. They can either be swallowed whole with a glass of water, or a tablet can be placed on the tongue and then sucked gently as it rapidly dissolves in the mouth. When opting for the latter method, the tablet will release micro-granules which should be swallowed whole without chewing.

How many days Zoton FasTab is taken for (and how many tablets in a single day) can vary depending on what exact symptoms are being treated. When dealing with heartburn and acid regurgitation, usually one 15mg or 30mg tablet is taken every day for four weeks. Your doctor should be contacted with symptoms are not relieved after four weeks. You also should not stop taking this medication earlier than you’re meant to even if your symptoms get better. Your condition may not have fully healed at the time and issues may reoccur before finishing your treatment course.

For those who have trouble with swallowing, this medication can be administered via syringe.

What are the side effects of Zoton FasTab?

Not everyone who takes Zoton tablets will experience side effects, but they are possible. The most commonly reported side effects associated with this medication are not a major concern but can cause a fair amount of discomfort. They include the following:

  • Headaches and dizziness
  • Diarrhoea, constipation and stomach pains
  • Dryness or soreness around the mouth or throat
  • Nausea
  • Skin rash
  • Tiredness
  • Benign polyps in the stomach

Other potential side effects are much less likely to crop up but can cause a lot of trouble and distress. You should talk to your doctor or pharmacist as soon as you can if you do experience side effects while taking Zoton.

Can I use Zoton FasTab?

Besides heartburn and acid regurgitation, Zoton FasTab may be prescribed to adults to treat the following issues:

  • Duodenal ulcer
  • Stomach ulcer
  • Inflammation in the oesophagus (reflux oesophagitis)
  • Long-term prevention of reflux oesophagitis
  • Infection of helicobacter pylori (bacteria in the digestive tract)
  • Zollinger-Ellison syndrome

There are certain health conditions that affect how you take these tablets, so you should let your doctor know before taking Zoton if any of the following apply to you:

  • You have a serious liver disease (your doctor may need to assess your condition thoroughly and adjust your dosage)
  • You have osteoporosis or you are taking corticosteroids (which can increase the risk of osteoporosis
  • You have low vitamin B12 levels or have risk factors for low vitamin B12 levels
  • You’re due to have a specific blood test
  • You have previously had a skin reaction after treatment with a medicine similar to Zoton that reduces your stomach acid
  • You are pregnant, breast-feeding or planning to have a baby

You should also inform your doctor in advance if you are currently taking any other medications. There are other treatments which can affect how effective Zoton works. This especially applies to the following:

  • Methotrexate (used to treat autoimmune disease and cancer)
  • Ketoconazole, itraconazole, rifampicin (used to treat infections)
  • Digoxin (treats heart issues)
  • Warfarin (treats blood clots)
