About LANFIL 15 TABLET 15'S

LANFIL 15 TABLET 15'S belongs to a group of antiulcer medicines called 'proton pump inhibitors' used to treat stomach and intestinal ulcers, inflammation of food pipe (oesophagus), gastro-oesophagal reflux disease - GERD (reflux of gastric contents into the oesophagus), heartburn, regurgitation, ulcers caused by the usage of pain killers, infections caused by Helicobacter pylori when given along with an antibiotic, and Zollinger-Ellison syndrome. 

LANFIL 15 TABLET 15'S contains 'Lansoprazole' that works by blocking the action of an enzyme known as the gastric proton pump responsible for the production of acid. This helps in reducing the amount of acid produced, heals the ulcers and prevents the formation of new ulcers.

In some cases, you may experience certain common side-effects such as headache, dizziness, diarrhoea, constipation, nausea, vomiting, flatulence (wind), dry mouth, skin rash, itching, and tiredness. Most of these side-effects do not require medical attention and will resolve gradually over time. However, you are advised to talk to your doctor if you experience these side-effects persistently.

Inform your doctor if you have liver disease, or if you are due to have Chromogranin A blood test. LANFIL 15 TABLET 15'S may cause dizziness, so drive only if you are alert. LANFIL 15 TABLET 15'S should not be given to children as safety has not been established. Avoid consuming alcohol along with LANFIL 15 TABLET 15'S as it could lead to increased drowsiness and can elevate the production of stomach acid. Keep your doctor informed about your health condition and medicines to rule out any side-effects.

    Patients Concern

    Disease/Condition Glossary

    Acidity: The stomach is usually protected from acid by a mucous layer. In some cases, due to excess acid production, the mucous layer gets eroded, which leads to complications like acidity, GERD, peptic ulcer, and Zollinger-Ellison syndrome.

    Gastroesophageal reflux disease (GERD): It is a condition that occurs when stomach acid frequently flows back into the food pipe (oesophagus). This backflow (acid reflux) irritates the food pipe and causes heartburn. 

    Peptic ulcer: A peptic ulcer is a painful condition followed by the development of sores or ulcers in the duodenum or stomach lining (the first part of the small intestine, i.e. duodenum). 

    Zollinger Ellison syndrome: It is a rare condition in which a gastrin-secreting tumour of the pancreas causes excessive acid production leading to peptic ulcers.

    FAQs

    LANFIL 15 TABLET 15'S works by blocking the action of the enzyme known as gastric proton pump that is responsible for the production of acid. This helps reduce the amount of acid produced, heals the ulcers and prevents the formation of new ulcers.

    LANFIL 15 TABLET 15'S may cause dizziness. So, drive only if you are alert and omit driving or operating machinery if you feel dizzy.

    Talk to your doctor if you do not feel better even after taking LANFIL 15 TABLET 15'S for 14 days. Do not take LANFIL 15 TABLET 15'S for longer durations unless prescribed by the doctor. If LANFIL 15 TABLET 15'S is prescribed for longer durations, a regular check-up is advised.

    Diarrhoea might be a side-effect of LANFIL 15 TABLET 15'S. Drink lots of fluids and eat non-spicy food if you experience diarrhoea. If you find blood in stools (tarry stools) or if you experience severe diarrhoea, consult your doctor. Do not take anti-diarrheal medicine on your own.

    Dry mouth could be a side-effect of LANFIL 15 TABLET 15'S. Limiting caffeine intake, avoiding smoking and mouthwashes containing alcohol, drinking water regularly, and chewing sugar-free gum/candy might help stimulate saliva and thereby prevent drying of the mouth.

    Avoid lying down immediately after meals. Raise the head of the bed 10-20 cm by putting a pillow so that the head and chest are above the waist. This prevents acid reflux (backflow of stomach acid to the food pipe).
