    Q.

    How is lansoprazole different from omeprazole?
    Lansoprazole is as effective as omeprazole on a dose to dose basis. However, lansoprazole has been found to exhibit a faster onset of acid suppression compared to omeprazole.

    Q.

    Why are lansoprazole capsules made gastro-resistant?
    Lansoprazole is made gastro-resistant to avoid its break down in the acid secreted from the stomach and to help in its absorption from the small intestine.

    Q.

    Why do lansoprazole cause vitamin D deficiency and osteoporosis?
    Many studies have revealed that PPI (including lansoprazole) therapy may be associated with an increased risk for osteoporosis-related fractures of the hip, wrist or spine. PPIs (including lansoprazole) reduce resorption of calcium from bone, as osteoclasts also possess proton pumps, thus their activity is thought to be directly affected by PPIs.

    Q.

    Can I take lansoprazole with amoxicillin/ naproxen/ citalopram/ sertraline/ ciprofloxacin/ doxycycline/ ramipril/ gabapentin/ Gaviscon?

    Q.

    Is lansoprazole gluten free?
    Yes, lansoprazole is gluten free. However, please refer to the information available on the tablet strip for contents of individual brands.

    Q.

    When should I take lansoprazole empty stomach or before food?
    Food is seen to interfere with the absorption of lansoprazole. So, it should be taken empty stomach as to increase its absorption. Also, lansoprazole exerts its maximum activity when the proton pumps (acid-secreting pumps) are most active which happens once the food is taken. Hence, lansoprazole, when given 30 minutes before food, reaches the proton pumps when they are most active.

    Q.

    Can I take lansoprazole with vitamin c?
    Yes, you can take lansoprazole along with vitamin C. There are no confirmed drug interactions reported when the two medicines are used together.

    Q.

    How is lansoprazole different from ranitidine?
    Lansoprazole blocks the final pathway of acid production, unlike ranitidine which acts more proximally. Hence, chances of acid secretion are still possible with the usage of ranitidine through other means. Whereas, lansoprazole shuts the final door causing complete acid suppression.

    Q.

    Is lansoprazole/ prevacid the same as omeprazole or pantoprazole?
    Prevacid is the brand name of lansoprazole. Lansoprazole, omeprazole and pantoprazole belong to a group of drugs called proton pump inhibitors and are used to reduce acid content of the stomach.
