i have been taking lansoperasole for 2 weeks and the last 3 days i have had terrible diarrehea

Posted , 5 users are following.

I was being sick after eating and when I laid down at night and coughing all the time. I went to the doctors and he gave me lansoperasole. After 2 weeks the coughing stopped but I now have terrible diarrehea and stomach cramps. I want to come off the lansoperasole but I don't want to keep coughing and being sick I'm going to try taking the lansoperasole every other day. Anyone else got this problem?

    HI Janet how are you after stopping the lansoprazole are you feeling better . I,ve been having watery stools and having to run to the toilet every morning I,m wondering if this is beacause of the medication I,m taking mine for Barretts and an ulcer so can't really stop taking it. The doctor said to try buscapan but it hasn't helped I don't know what else to do . Have you tried anything else and if you have has it worked . I,d welcome any tips .

      Im still being sick after certain things - I can eat half a bowl of porridge but even a little more than half and I'm sick. Had l shredded wheat today and so far so good - 1 slice of toast with not too much butter stays down as well. Ive found that if I eat white cabbage I'm fine too. Boiled egg was fine too with 1 slice bread. My cousin whos a nurse said I should try a different ppi but I don't really want to take them again. she suggested Omeprazole so maybe you should try that - good luck xx

      hi, thanks for commenting - It was weeks ago that I had the loose stools and ive got over it now (it lasted a week). I am sure the gaviscon would have worked but I wanted my body to eliminate the thing that was making my stools loose. Thanks again - be well xx
