What is Lansoprazole?
Lansoprazole is a drug which causes lower acid production in the stomach. It belongs to a family of drugs called proton pump inhibitors. Lansoprazole is sold under various trade names, some of which are Prevacid, Lanzap (made by Dr. Reddy?s Laboratories) and Lanzol (made by Cipla).
Lansoprazole is primarily used in the treatment and prevention of peptic (stomach) and intestinal ulcers. It is also prescribed for people with gastro-esophageal reflux disease (GERD) and other similar conditions characterized by excessive amount of acid production in the stomach such as Zollinger-Ellison syndrome. This medication is used for the treatment of erosive esophagitis, a condition in which the stomach acid reaches the esophagus and damages it. This medication will however, not give immediate relief from heartburn.
