Introduction

Lesulf Tablet is a prescription medicine used in the treatment of gastric problems like nausea, vomiting, heartburn or indigestion. It also prevents acid reflux (acid going up to the food pipe) and hence helps in the treatment of gastroesophageal reflux disease (GERD).

Lesulf Tablet can also be used in the management of schizophrenia and depression. It may be taken with or without food. However, it is advised to take it at the same time each day as this helps to maintain a consistent level of medicine in the body. Take this medicine in the dose and duration as advised by your doctor and if you have missed a dose, take it as soon as you remember.

Some common side effects of this medicine include headache and fatigue. It also causes dizziness and sleepiness, so do not drive or do anything that requires mental focus until you know how this medicine affects you. You should immediately consult your doctor if there are missed periods, abnormal milk secretion, changes in sexual desire, or fever after taking this medicine.

Benefits of Lesulf Tablet

In Gastroesophageal reflux disease (Acid reflux)

Gastroesophageal reflux disease (GERD) is a chronic (long-term) condition which is like having heartburn consistently rather than just occasionally. It happens because a muscle above your stomach relaxes too much and allows stomach contents to come back up into your oesophagus and mouth. Lesulf Tablet reduces the amount of acid your stomach makes and relieves the pain associated with heartburn and acid reflux. You should take it exactly as it is prescribed for it to be effective.
Some simple lifestyle changes can help reduce the symptoms of GERD. Think about what foods trigger heartburn and try to avoid them; eat smaller, more frequent meals; try to lose weight if you are overweight and try to find ways to relax. Do not eat within 3-4 hours of going to bed.

In Irritable bowel syndrome

Irritable bowel syndrome is a chronic (long-term) inflammatory disease of the large intestine (colon) that usually needs long term management. This can lead to bleeding, frequent diarrhea and abdominal pain. Lesulf Tablet can relieve these symptoms effectively. Continue taking Lesulf Tablet for as long as the doctor may advise you to. You need to take this medicine regularly to get the most out of it and you should drink plenty of fluids while taking it to make sure you stay hydrated.

In Heartburn

Heartburn is a burning feeling in your chest caused by stomach acids travelling back up towards your throat and mouth (acid reflux). Lesulf Tablet improves the movement of food in the stomach and helps prevent heartburn.

You should take it exactly as it is prescribed or as it says on the label for it to be effective. Some simple lifestyle changes can help stop or reduce heartburn. Avoid oily and spicy food, have simple food instead, and consult a dietitian to get a diet chart that suits your requirements. Exercise daily to stay active and maintain a healthy body weight.

Most side effects do not require any medical attention and disappear as your body adjusts to the medicine. Consult your doctor if they persist or if you’re worried about them
