What Is Lansoprazole?

The active ingredient in Lansoprazole Capsules is lansoprazole, which is a Proton Pump Inhibitor.

Proton Pump Inhibitors (PPIs) work by reducing the amount of acid that your stomach produces.

Lansoprazole is used to treat symptoms of gastroesophageal reflux disease (GORD) and other conditions involving excessive stomach acid which can cause discomfort such as heart burn, acidic taste in the mouth, stomach discomfort, feelings of food being stuck to your oesaphagus (food pipe) and difficulties in swallowing.

Lansoprazole Orodispersible is an alternative to Lansoprazole, they work in exactly the same way but the orodispersible is dissolvable in the mouth.
