how long does lansoprazole take to work?

Posted , 6 users are following.

I have been taking lansoprazole for 10 weeks, 30mg a day,and still get

some reflux and heartburn every day.Have given up coffee and reduced

my wine intake.

Side effects have been minimal. Some wind which I have stopped by not

drinking with meals but worried about the osteoporosis risk. Dr says to

take for 2 more weeks then see what happens. Then an endoscopy.

    Lansoprazole should work straight away, side affect are down to the individual, in my case I was taking the drug for a while before my problems started.

    Your doctor 'may' advise you up your dosage to 2 times a day to combat acid reflux ask his/her advise.
