    Default Anyone taking lansoprazole?

    I've been having chest pains (across bottom of ribs&diaphragm) and its been diagnosed as most likely oesophagitis or possibly an ulcer.

    So for the last 5 weeks I've been on lansoprasole which has 'sort of' made a difference - it tends to come and go. Always feel too full after eating and get stomach pains when I'm hungry (not like the normal hunger pains!)

    Anyone else taken this, did it take a while to clear up the problem? 5 weeks seems a long time for something like this to clear up.

    I'm on Omeprazole due to acid reflux and I have to say I get bouts of Nausea occasionally. My sister is on Laprazole (same as you?) as she had a stomach ulcer, she hasn't had complaints to my knowledge.

    I was having sensations of something being stuck in my gullet and was worried due to the refux I had and the Omeprazole cleared it up no problem. I think the one you're on is the stronger stuff though, but I'm not 100%.

    I think theres a lot of these 'prazole' types of drugs. They do seem to work but as this came on suddenly I would have thought it was likely to die down.

    Then again I found out I had a hiatus hernia about 20 years ago and apparently this is a cause as well!

    I'm only on 15mg twice a day which seems lower that most people I know who've taken something similar.

    I've been taking that for 5 years and take it as 1 30mg tablet per day. If I stop it I get really bad reflux so I take it all the time. Mine will not repair itself and the tablets help keep the reflux under control. Funny thing is when I work away in Africa and eat their food I don't need it as the food is free from artificial colours and preservatives!

    Same story with me! However mine flares up no matter what I eat, I have been on it for a year now and whenever I stop taking it, within 2 days I have rotten acid reflux and it ****** hurts. Makes me snore too which gets me a clump round the head from the misses

    Mine is simple acid reflux though however I have a feeling they are going to stick a camera down my throat before long!

    My twopenneth as someone who suffered for 20 years with stomach problems:

    I have taken omeprazole in the past and it did the trick. However the 'azoles' have somewhat been superceded by Cimetidine and Ranitidine (branded as Tagamet and Zantac respectively).

    Ranitidine is now available generically over the counter as its 7-year licence has expired and I would recommend it as it cuts down the production of stomach acid, which is the major cause of stomach ulcers, gastritis, gastric reflux and the like.

    I used to have to take lansoprazole for a hiatus hernia a few years ago took them for probably 2 years in total . what i found is they can make you feel lethargic or asif you have no energy gave up on them in the end spending out for prescription,s whether you needed them or not , now a days i always have gavilast near by incase of one of these gastric attack,s but these are now rare, plus i feel a lot better now that i dont take lansoprazole
