Is It Dangerous If Overdosing On Stomach Acid Medication?
, I was given 3 drugs with a doctor, antacids, Lansoprazol, and Paracetamol, antacids 3 times a day, Paracetamol 3 times a day, and Lansoprazole 1 time a day, antacids with Lansoprazole taken before meals, well, Lansoprazole is recommended for drinking once a day. one day, well I already drank this morning, in the afternoon I forgot, I ate the Lansoprazole again, I swallowed it just then I remembered, is it okay ,? Or there are side effects, I feel scared, please explain
Hello Yoki, thank you for the question to HealthReplies.com
Basically Lansoprazole has a high safety range. Toxicity due to overdosing of Lansoprazole is very rare, even giving Lansoprazole up to 180 mg per day also does not show certain acute side effects (Lansoprazole available in general is Lansoprazole 30 mg). If you accidentally take this medicine 2 times a day, chances are there will be no short-term or long-term side effects that will occur so you don't need to worry too much.
Henceforth, you should pay close attention to how to take the medicine listed in the package so that it does not happen again taking medication wrong. If you feel certain unusual symptoms after you take the two Lansoprazole medications, you should immediately consult a doctor.
So much information from me, hopefully enough answer
