Side Effects Of Taking Medication Exceed The Dose?
I took lansoprazole 1×1, but I forgot because at night I took this medicine again so it was 2×1. is it okay?
Hello Lala, Thank you for the question.
Lansoprazole is a proton pump inhibitor in the stomach which functions to control stomach acid production. This drug is widely used to treat a variety of stomach disorders due to excessive stomach acid such as gastritis, peptic ulcers, and stomach acid disease. You can take this medicine 1-2 times a day depending on your condition. Thus, if you take this medicine twice then you don't need to worry. However, you need to be more careful in the future because if you take a different drug, medication dosage errors can potentially increase the side effects of the drug. Therefore, make sure you take the medicine according to the doctor's orders, you can take the medication close to your routine so you can easily remember it or you can make a reminder on your cellphone so you don't forget it. In addition, you can also put the medicine in a place that is easily visible so that you remember taking the drug. You can also save the medicine packaging for a while so that you can find out how many pills you have taken so that you can also easily find out whether you have taken the dosage that day or not.
Hope it helps you.
