    What is Lansoprazole Oro-dispersible?

    Lansoprazole oro-dispersible, sometimes incorrectly spelt as Lasoprol, belongs to a group of medications called proton pump inhibitors (PPI), which are licensed for the treatment of acid reflux. The branded name of this medication is Zoton which is manufactured by AstraZeneca. Lansoprazole oro-dispersible rapidly disperses when placed on the tongue allowing faster absorption of the medication and in turn symptoms relief.

    How does Lansoprazole Oro-dispersible work?

    Lansoprazole dispersible tablets works to control symptoms of acid reflux by reducing acid production in the stomach directly. It does this by blocking an enzyme called a ‘proton pump’, which is involved in the final step of stomach acid formation. This medication is taken once daily, it can start working in as little as 30 minutes and is effective for up to 24 hours. It works rapidly to control symptoms and can reduce acid secretion by 80% after a single dose.

    How do I take Lansoprazole Oro-dispersible tablets?

    This medication should be taken in the morning at least half an hour before food for best absorption. These tablets should be placed on the tongue and sucked allowing rapid dispersion and absorption of medication. If there is no improvement in symptoms after 14 days of taking this medication or symptoms are still present after 28 days of treatment, you should see your GP to discuss alternate options.
