Can I Take Lansoprazole And Omeprazole In Close Proximity?
This afternoon I took an afternoon drink with omeprazole … what should I do or what? “
I try to explain yes.
The two drugs you mean right are PPI (Proton Pump Inhibitor) drugs, this class of drugs aims to reduce the increase in stomach acid. Usually this drug will be given if the sufferer experiences heartburn (heartburn in the chest), GERD (Gastro Esophageal Reflux Disease), peptic ulcers and other medical conditions.
This class of drugs is usually taken 2 times a day, and can be consumed with or without eating first. It's best to avoid taking this medicine in the near future. And for the use of these drugs should be under the supervision of a doctor and you should avoid using drugs without doctor's advice.
This class of drugs also has several side effects such as flatulence, headaches, constipation, diarrhea or nausea and vomiting.
Here are some things you can do at home, avoid eating sour and spicy, eat on time, compress the stomach using warm water if it hurts.
If there are complaints such as bowel movements become black or vomiting accompanied by blood then you should immediately see a doctor.
Thank you, hopefully useful.
