Apo Lansoprazole How to Take

Lansoprazole belongs to the family of medications called proton pump inhibitors (PPIs). These medications slow or prevent the production of acid within the stomach.

Lansoprazole is used to treat gastric (stomach) ulcers, duodenal (intestinal) ulcers, reflux esophagitis, and GERD (Gastroesophageal reflux disease) (GERD). It is also used in combination with antibiotics to treat and eradicate H. pylori bacteria (a major cause of duodenal ulcers).

Lansoprazole is used to treat gastric ulcers caused by a family of pain relievers known as nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs), and to reduce the risk of gastric ulcers for people who are taking NSAIDs. It is also used to treat conditions associated with the over-production of stomach acid, including Zollinger-Ellison syndrome.

Apo Lansoprazole may be available under multiple brand names and/or in several different forms. Any specific brand name of Apo Lansoprazole may not be available in all of the forms or approved for all of the conditions discussed here. As well, some forms of Apo Lansoprazole may not be used for all of the conditions discussed here.

Your doctor may have suggested Apo Lansoprazole for conditions other than those listed in these drug information articles. If you have not discussed this with your doctor or are not sure why you are taking Apo Lansoprazole, speak to your doctor. Do not stop taking Apo Lansoprazole without consulting your doctor.

Do not give Apo Lansoprazole to anyone else, even if they have the same symptoms as you do. It can be harmful for people to take Apo Lansoprazole if their doctor has not prescribed it.

Apo Lansoprazole Dosage

To treat duodenal (intestinal) ulcers, the recommended adult dose of lansoprazole is 15 mg daily, before breakfast, for 2 to 4 weeks. For duodenal ulcers that return, lansoprazole may be used for up to one year.

To treat gastric (stomach) ulcers, the recommended adult dose of lansoprazole is 15 mg daily, before breakfast, for 4 to 8 weeks. The usual recommended dose to treat gastric ulcers caused by NSAIDs is 15 mg to 30 mg daily, before breakfast, for up to 8 weeks. When used to reduce the risk of gastric ulcers for people who are taking NSAIDs, the usual dose is 15 mg daily, before breakfast, for up to 12 weeks.

To treat duodenal ulcers caused by H. pylori bacteria (as confirmed by a test), the recommended dose of lansoprazole is 30 mg along with clarithromycin 500 mg and amoxicillin 1,000 mg, all taken twice daily for 7, 10, or 14 days. All of these medications should be taken before meals. This combination of medications helps kill the bacteria that can cause duodenal ulcers.

To treat GERD and associated heartburn symptoms, the recommended dose of lansoprazole is 15 mg daily before breakfast for up to 8 weeks. Doses up to 30 mg daily are sometimes prescribed for reflux esophagitis or other conditions associated with increased secretion of acid by the stomach.

To treat GERD in children 1 to 11 years of age, the recommended dose is 15 mg to 30 mg (depending on the child's weight) once daily for up to 12 weeks. An increase in dose may be beneficial for some children. For adolescents 12 to 17 years old who have GERD, the adult dose can be used.

When treating Zollinger-Ellison syndrome or other conditions which overproduce stomach acid, the dose of lansoprazole varies, but is often higher than the doses used to treat ulcers. Doses larger than 60 mg daily are often needed.

Many things can affect the dose of medication that a person needs, such as body weight, other medical conditions, and other medications. If your doctor has recommended a dose different from the ones listed here, do not change the way that you are taking the medication without consulting your doctor.

Lansoprazole should be taken before breakfast or, if taken twice daily, before breakfast and another meal. The medication should not be crushed or chewed. The capsules should be swallowed whole with a glass of water. People who have difficulty swallowing capsules may open the capsule and sprinkle its contents on a tablespoon of applesauce, which should then be immediately swallowed.

Lansoprazole fast dissolving tablets should not be chewed or cut. They should not be swallowed whole; they should be placed on the tongue for about one minute to allow the tablet to dissolve. Once the tablet has dissolved, the particles can be swallowed. Alternatively, for adults and children who have trouble swallowing, the tablet may be dissolved in an oral syringe with water. Speak to your pharmacist for specific directions.

It is important to take Apo Lansoprazole exactly as prescribed by your doctor. If you miss a dose, take it as soon as possible and continue with your regular schedule. If it is almost time for your next dose, skip the missed dose and continue with your regular dosing schedule. Do not take a double dose to make up for a missed one. If you are not sure what to do after missing a dose, contact your doctor or pharmacist for advice.

Store Apo Lansoprazole at room temperature, protect it from light and moisture, and keep it out of the reach of children.

Do not dispose of medications in wastewater (e.g. down the sink or in the toilet) or in household garbage. Ask your pharmacist how to dispose of medications that are no longer needed or have expired.

Apo Lansoprazole Precautions

There may be an interaction between lansoprazole and any of the following:

If you are taking any of these medications, speak with your doctor or pharmacist. Depending on your specific circumstances, your doctor may want you to:

  • stop taking one of the medications,
  • change one of the medications to another,
  • change how you are taking one or both of the medications, or
  • leave everything as is.

An interaction between two medications does not always mean that you must stop taking one of them. Speak to your doctor about how any drug interactions are being managed or should be managed.

Medications other than those listed above may interact with Apo Lansoprazole. Tell your doctor or prescriber about all prescription, over-the-counter (non-prescription), and herbal medications you are taking. Also tell them about any supplements you take. Since caffeine, alcohol, the Nicotine from cigarettes, or street drugs can affect the action of many medications, you should let your prescriber know if you use them.

Apo Lansoprazole Warnings

Before you begin taking a medication, be sure to inform your doctor of any medical conditions or Allergies you may have, any medications you are taking, whether you are pregnant or breast-feeding, and any other significant facts about your health. These factors may affect how you should take Apo Lansoprazole.

Diarrhea: When gastric acid is decreased, the number of bacteria normally in the digestive system increases. Occasionally, this can cause serious infection in the digestive tract. If you experience severe watery or bloody diarrhea, fever, or abdominal pain while taking lansoprazole, contact your doctor as soon as possible.

Electrolyte balance: Long term use of lansoprazole may cause the levels of electrolytes such as magnesium, calcium, and potassium in the blood to decrease. If you experience symptoms of fluid and electrolyte imbalance such as muscle pains or cramps; dry mouth; numb hands, feet, or lips; or racing heartbeat, contact your doctor as soon as possible. Your doctor may do blood tests periodically to monitor the levels of these electrolytes in your blood while you are taking Apo Lansoprazole.

Liver function: Decreased liver function may cause lansoprazole to build up in the body. If you have reduced liver function or liver disease, discuss with your doctor how Apo Lansoprazole may affect your medical condition, how your medical condition may affect the dosing and effectiveness of Apo Lansoprazole, and whether any special monitoring is needed.

If you experience symptoms of liver problems such as fatigue, feeling unwell, loss of appetite, nausea, yellowing of the skin or whites of the eyes, dark urine, pale stools, abdominal pain or swelling, and itchy skin, contact your doctor immediately.

Methotrexate interaction: Lansoprazole, like other medications in this group, may interact with methotrexate when the two medications are used at the same time. This combination may lead to higher than expected amounts of methotrexate in the body and can cause serious side effects, including kidney damage, irregular heartbeat, Anemia, or infection. If you take lansoprazole and are also going to receive a dose of methotrexate, discuss with your doctor how Apo Lansoprazole may affect your medical condition, how your medical condition may affect the dosing and effectiveness of Apo Lansoprazole, and whether any special monitoring is needed.

More serious conditions of the stomach and intestines: Even if you experience improvement in acid-related symptoms, it is still possible to have serious underlying stomach problems such as stomach cancer. If you experience symptoms of a more serious condition of the stomach and intestines (e.g., trouble swallowing, unplanned weight loss, vomiting of blood or food, or black stools) while taking Apo Lansoprazole, contact your doctor immediately.

Osteoporosis fractures: Long-term use of lansoprazole may be related to an increased risk of bone fractures in the hip, wrist, or spine, as a result of weakened bones. This risk is further increased if you are at risk of developing osteoporosis. If you have osteoporosis or have risk factors for developing osteoporosis, discuss with your doctor how Apo Lansoprazole may affect your medical condition, how your medical condition may affect the dosing and effectiveness of Apo Lansoprazole, and whether any special monitoring is needed.

Vitamin B12: Long-term use of lansoprazole may lead to vitamin B12 deficiency. If you are a vegetarian or have low vitamin B12 levels, discuss with your doctor if any special monitoring is required.

Pregnancy: There are no adequate or well-controlled studies on the use of Apo Lansoprazole by pregnant women. Apo Lansoprazole should not be used during pregnancy unless the benefits outweigh the risks. If you become pregnant while taking Apo Lansoprazole, contact your doctor immediately.

Breast-feeding: It is not known if lansoprazole passes into breast milk. If you are a breast-feeding mother and are taking Apo Lansoprazole, it may affect your baby. Talk to your doctor about whether you should continue breast-feeding.

Children: The safety and effectiveness of Apo Lansoprazole have not been established for use by children under one year old. For children 1 to 17 years old, Apo Lansoprazole can be used to treat GERD for a maximum of 12 weeks.
