Side Effects

Most people who take lansoprazole do not have any side effects. If you do get a side effect, it is usually mild and will go away when you stop taking lansoprazole.

These common side effects may happen in more than 1 in 100 people.

Talk to your doctor or pharmacist if these side effects bother you or do not go away:

  • headaches

  • constipation

Serious side effects

Call a doctor or contact 111 straight away if you have:

  • stomach pain that seems to be getting worse – this can be a sign of an inflamed liver or pancreas
  • joint pain along with a red skin rash, especially in parts of your body exposed to the sun, such as your arms, cheeks and nose (this may be less noticeable on brown or black skin) – these can be signs of a rare condition called subacute cutaneous lupus erythematosus. This can happen even if you've been taking lansoprazole for a long time
  • severe or persistent diarrhoea – this can be a sign of an inflamed bowel

Swallow the tablets or capsules whole with a drink of water or juice.

If you have problems swallowing capsules, you can open lansoprazole capsules and mix the granules inside with a little water or fruit juice, or sprinkle them onto soft food, such as yogurt or apple puree, to help you swallow them.

Lansoprazole also comes as dispersible tablets that melt in your mouth.



Warnings and precautions

Talk to your doctor or pharmacist before taking Lansoprazole.

Please tell your doctor if you have serious liver disease. The doctor may have to adjust your dosage.

If you have ever had a skin reaction after treatment with a medicine similar to Lansoprazole that reduces stomach acid talk to your doctor before taking Lansoprazole.

If you get a rash on your skin, especially in areas exposed to the sun tell your doctor as soon as you can, as you may need to stop your treatment with Lansoprazole. Remember to also mention any other ill-effects like pain in your joints.

Your doctor may perform or have performed an additional investigation called an endoscopy in order to diagnose your condition and/or exclude malignant disease.

If diarrhoea occurs during the treatment with Lansoprazole contact your doctor immediately, as Lansoprazole has been associated with a small increase in infectious diarrhoea.

If your doctor has given you Lansoprazole in addition to other medicines intended for the treatment of Helicobacter pylori infection (antibiotics) or together with anti-inflammatory medicines to treat your pain or rheumatic disease: please also read the package leaflets of these medicines carefully.

If you take Lansoprazole on a long-term basis (longer than 1 year) your doctor will probably keep you under regular surveillance. You should report any new and exceptional symptoms and circumstances whenever you see your doctor.

Taking a proton pump inhibitor like < Invented name >, especially over a period of more than one year, may slightly increase your risk of fracture in the hip, wrist or spine. Tell your doctor if you have osteoporosis or if you are taking corticosteroids (which can increase the risk of osteoporosis).

Tell your doctor before taking this medicine, if you are due to have a specific blood testm (Chromogranin A).

Talk to your doctor before taking lansoprazole if you have low vitamin B12 levels or have risk factors for low vitamin B12 levels and receive long-term treatment with lansoprazole. As with all acid reducing agents, lansoprazole may lead to a reduced absorption of vitamin B12.
