 4  H pylori & healing stomach ulcer Nothing extreme/serious Initially prescribed Lansoprazole to eradicate H Pylori along with 2 antibiotics twice a day for a week. (I had no side effects at all) Now I'm taking it once a day for a month to ensure the ulcer is healed properly by preventing too much stomach acid producing. I have had no bad side effects, just dry mouth, acid reflux and slight diarhorroea for the first few days. It's been 2 weeks into Lansoprazole, and there has been up and down days... Can't lie there. But I can now eat what I want (including a little chocolate and fatty food). Appetite has gone back to normal (I had zero appetite before the treatment :( ) Just hoping I don't get withdrawal symptoms when i come off Lansoprazole!!!!! (Been hearing others saying acid reflux comes back worse... Indigestion... Everything) F 20 4 weeks

LANSOPRAZOLE  (LANSOPRAZOLE):  Lansoprazole is used to treat certain stomach and esophagus problems (such as acid reflux, ulcers). It works by decreasing the amount of acid your stomach makes. It relieves symptoms such as heartburn, difficulty swallowing, and persistent cough. This medication helps heal acid damage to the stomach and esophagus, helps prevent ulcers, and may help prevent cancer of the esophagus. Lansoprazole belongs to a class of drugs known as proton pump inhibitors (PPIs). If you are self-treating with this medication, over-the-counter lansoprazole products are used to treat frequent heartburn (occurring 2 or more days a week). Since it may take 1 to 4 days to have full effect, these products do not relieve heartburn right away. For over-the-counter products, carefully read the package instructions to make sure the product is right for you. Check the ingredients on the label even if you have used the product before. The manufacturer may have changed the ingredients. Also, products with similar brand names may contain different ingredients meant for different purposes. Taking the wrong product could harm you.   (Sources: U.S. Centers for Medicare Services, FDA)
