Expert advice for SWIFTIN

  • The Lafutidine can be taken with or without food.
  • Lafutidine is very effective in controlling stomach acid release in the midnight, so it is better to take Lafutidine before going to bed.
  • Take Lafutidine for the entire prescribed duration of the treatment, even if you begin to feel better
    If you are taking an antacid, take it 2 hours before or after the Lafutidine.
  • Avoid drinking soft drinks, citrus products like orange and lemon, which irritate the stomach.
