Frequently asked questions for Deltone 60mg Capsule MR

Frequently asked questions for Dexlansoprazole

Deltone can be used for different durations depending on the condition. It is used in adults for 4 weeks to treat heartburn related to gastroesophageal reflux disease (GERD) in which acid from stomach enters food pipe (esophagus). It is used for 8 weeks to heal acid-related damage to the food pipe (called reflux esophagitis or RE) and for up to 6 months to continue healing of erosive esophagitis.
Gastroesophageal reflux disease (GERD) happens when high acid secretion in your stomach enters your food pipe (esophagus) and causes a burning feeling in chest (heartburn) or throat, sour taste or burping. Deltone acts by decreasing the acid produced in the stomach and relieves the symptoms of GERD.
Q. Is Deltone better than lansoprazole?
Deltone is an r-enantiomer of lansoprazole. An enantiomer is one of the two molecules that are mirror images of each other and are non-superimposable. Although there is no data or research done to determine whether Deltone is better than lansoprazole, different patients may find that one works better than the other for them.
There are no withdrawal symptoms seen when you stop using Deltone as it has no addiction potential.
