    I stopped take Lansoprazole about a week ago and my side effects are about the same, they do go and come back from time to time.

      Walton I stopped Lansoprazole nearly 2 weeks ago and I still got shakes, tingeling in my limbs and somewhat brainfog at times plus major anxiety and tight muscles. How long did it take for your side effects to wear off after quitting? Stefan

      Hi Stefano,

      I know your post was over a year ago, but did you get over your symptoms after coming off Lansoprazole.

      I ask this because it has been nearly two weeks for me coming off these drugs and I get shakes, pins and needles and feeling out of it.

    I started taking lansoprazole about 4 weeks ago and have had diarrhoea since then and yesterday experienced a kind of tight muscle pain in my leg which left me limping I have decided to stop the tabs from tomorrow because I cannot deal with diarrhoea

    Hi there,

    Did you manage to get better after coming off the Lanzoprazole.

    ​As I have stopped taking this after a year and feel like I need the toilet constantly and not the front end.

      Ano you posted this about a year ago but iv just come off

      Lansoprosole after a few years on it. I was having anxiety

      Attacks. Dizzy spells, tingling fingers, blood pressure issues.

      Feeling down, and loose stools first thing in the morning.

      But since iv come off them my tummy full of gas, churning and also have very loose undigested food stools.

      Just wondered how you are now, if you managed to get sorted.and how. I'm at the doctors again tomoro and taking a sample with me, I wish I had never started taking them,

      Side effects taking them and stopping them are herendous
