Lansoprazole

 

Lansoprazole is used to treat certain stomach and esophagus problems (such as acid reflux, ulcers). It works by decreasing the amount of acid your stomach makes. It relieves symptoms such as heartburn, difficulty swallowing, and persistent cough. This medication helps heal acid damage to the stomach and esophagus, helps prevent ulcers, and may help prevent cancer of the esophagus. Lansoprazole belongs to a class of drugs known as proton pump inhibitors (PPIs).

I need to take this medicine because I have acid reflux, plus I take Clopidogrel every morning so it helps protect my stomach. I have been taking Lansoprazole for about 8 years and have had no side effects.
