1 Answer:

Hello Purnomo, Thank you for the question.


Omeprazole, lansoprazole, and pantoprazole are drugs that are in the same class of drugs, which are proton pump inhibitors (PPIs) in the stomach. PPI serves to inhibit the production of stomach acid, which is used to treat digestive system disorders such as stomach ulcers, peptic ulcers, stomach acid diseases, syndromes and others. The difference is the difference in drug generation; omeprazole is a first generation PPI, lanzoprazole is a second generation PPI, whereas pantoprazole PPI is a third generation. However, all three have the same function mentioned above and have different dosage of tablets.


Regarding the duration of treatment, this depends on what medical conditions experienced by a person so they have to take PPI drugs. The best step is to consult with a specialist in internal medicine. The doctor will ask questions about your complaint and examine you. If necessary, the doctor will perform other tests such as blood tests, barium meal ultrasound, endoscopy, and others to determine the cause. After knowing the medical condition that underlies your complaint, your doctor will determine the period of time for PPI use.


I hope this information is helpful.
