Taking lanzaprazole

Posted , 3 users are following.

I’ve struggled with this drug with headaches and nausea. I also take b blockers. Does anyone else get these affects.  I am taking the  drug after endoscopy which suggested v early Barrett cells. I’ve got the loose muscle from oesophagus to stomach but never taking lanzaprazole again! Is it the only option?

    There are many different PPIs that are all as effective at reducing acid as each other but some are tolerated better than others by some. Speak to your doctor and try a different one - eg omeprazole or pantoprazole.
