    i was on lanzporazole too for stomach issues, i found it helped for a short while then actually gave me stomach and rib pain, so its not really great for long term use. it wont have any anxiety affects though

    As you started taking these tablets 4 months ago it seems obvious that they either aren't a good mix for you or you have a bad reaction to either or both of them. Try keeping a diary of what's happpening for a week and then make an appointment to see the doctor and give him he diary to read and ask him to come up with alternative medication for you. You can't go on as you are.
