Most people will have experienced acid reflux in their lifetime, and it can go away on its own with time. For some people, acid reflux poses a more constant problem and will require medication such as Lansoprazole capsules, as often the symptoms can be painful and uncomfortable. Although the cause of acid reflux isn’t always understood some common causes include:
certain food and drink – such as coffee, alcohol, chocolate and fatty or spicy foods
stress and anxiety
some medicines, such as anti-inflammatory painkillers (like ibuprofen)
a hiatus hernia – when part of your stomach moves up into your chest
Lansoprazole capsules are a great way to relieve symptoms and manage chronic acid reflux. They are available in 15mg and 30mg, and your dosage will vary depending on the severity of your symptoms. The commonly recommended dosage for moderate acid reflux is taking a 30mg capsule for 4 weeks until the acid reflux or gullet damage has subsided, though as previously mentioned this will depend on what you have been prescribed.
Lansoprazole is sometimes referred to by its brand name of Prevacid.
Lansoprazole requires a prescription. You can buy Lansoprazole capsules online from a trusted prescriber such as e-Surgery or at your local GP. If you choose to buy Lansoprazole capsules online with e-Surgery prices start at £7.95. We will require a short 2-minute health questionnaire to check you are reviving the correct medication.
