About Lansoprazole/Zoton

Lansoprazole capsules provide instant relief from acid reflux, heartburn, and stomach ulcers. This medication eases these recurrent symptoms by inhibiting the production of acid in the stomach. The capsules are available in strengths of 15mg or 30mg.

Stomach acids are significant for the digestive process. They act by breaking down food prior to it reaching the intestines. Usually, the oesophagus is guarded against these acids by the oesophageal sphincter. This sphincter is comprised of a group of muscles that form a one-way barrier; allowing food to enter the stomach, but preventing acids from leaving. However, sometimes, this sphincter can weaken, which allows stomach acid to pass through this barrier and enter the oesophagus. This is acid reflux. Heartburn is a consequence of acid reflux, caused by acid ‘burning, the tissues of the oesophagus. Heartburn has nothing to do with the heart. It gets its name purely because the burning sensation is felt in the chest.

Many of us will experience the occasional bout of heartburn. However, some sufferers can experience these symptoms very frequently – this will likely be due to gastro-oesophageal reflux disease (GORD). Lansoprazole is a prescription-only-medicine for GORD and other related conditions, such as stomach ulcers and an inflamed oesophagus. Lansoprazole works by inhibiting the activity of proton pumps (proteins that produce acids in the stomach). This decreases the levels of acid in the stomach, relieving the associated symptoms of acid reflux.

What is Zoton Lansoprazole?

The active substance in Zoton is lansoprazole, a proton pump inhibitor. Proton pump inhibitors decrease the amount of acid the stomach generates.

How does it work?

Lansoprazole is a gastric proton pump inhibitor. Inhibits the final stage of the formation of gastric acids by inhibiting H + activity/K + ATPase of the parietal cells of the stomach. This inhibition is dose-dependent and reversible, and the effect is applied to secretion both as stimulated by gastric acids. Lansoprazole is concentrated in the parietal cells and becomes active in its acidic environment, where it reacts with the sulfhydryl group of H +/K + ATPase, producing the inhibition of enzyme activity.

What are the benefits of taking it?

Zoton Lansoprazole uses include being indicated for the treatment of these conditions:

  • Duodenal and gastric ulcer treatment
  • Treatment of inflammation of the esophagus (reflux esophagitis)
  • Prevention of reflux esophagitis
  • Treatment of heartburn and acid regurgitation
  • Treatment of infections caused by the bacterium Helicobacter pylori, in combination with antibiotics
  • Treatment or prevention of gastric or duodenal ulcer in patients requiring continuous treatment with non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs) (NSAID treatment is used for pain or inflammation)
  • Zollinger-Ellison syndrome treatment

How do I use it and its dosage?

Always use this medication exactly as your doctor has told you. If in doubt, ask your doctor or pharmacist again.

Put the tablet on your tongue and suck it slowly. The tablet dissolves quickly in the mouth, releasing micro granules to be swallowed without chewing. You can also swallow the tablet whole with a glass of water.

Your doctor may direct you to administer the tablet with a syringe in case you have serious difficulty swallowing.

Follow the instructions below in case of syringe administration:

It is important that you carefully check that the selected syringe is correct.

  • Pull the plunger out of the syringe (at least one 5 ml syringe).
  • Put the tablet in the reservoir.
  • Put the plunger back into the syringe.
  • Fill the syringe with 4 ml of water.
  • Turn the syringe over and pull the plunger to let in 1 ml of air.
  • Gently shake the syringe for 10-20 seconds until the tablet has dispersed.
  • The content can be emptied directly into the mouth.
  • Refill the syringe with 2–5 ml of water to flush out any remaining syringes and empty it into the mouth.

If you take Zoton once a day, always try to take it at the same time. You can get better results if you take Zoton first thing in the morning.

If you take Zoton twice a day, you should take the first dose in the morning and the second dose in the evening.

Very rare side effects (may affect up to 1 in 10,000 people):

  • severe hypersensitivity reactions, including anaphylactic shock. Hypersensitivity reaction symptoms may include fever, rash, swelling, and sometimes a drop in blood pressure.
  • inflammation of the mouth (stomatitis)

  • changes in analytical values, such as sodium, cholesterol and triglyceride levels
  • very serious skin reactions with redness, vesicles, severe inflammation, and skin loss
  • Very rarely Zoton may cause a reduction in the number of leukocytes, which may cause a decrease in your resistance to infection. If you experience an infection with symptoms such as fever and severe deterioration of your general condition, or fever with symptoms of local infection such as sore throat/pharynx/mouth or urinary problems, immediately consult your doctor. You will have a blood test to check for a possible reduction in leukocytes (agranulocytosis).

Frequency not known (cannot be estimated from the available data):

  • If you have been taking Zoton for more than three months, your blood magnesium levels may decrease. Low magnesium levels can cause tiredness, involuntary muscle contractions, disorientation, seizures, dizziness, and increased heart rate. If you notice any of these symptoms, tell your doctor immediately. Low magnesium levels can also lead to decreased potassium or calcium levels in the blood. Your doctor will probably order regular blood tests to check your magnesium levels.
  • Skin rash, possibly with joint pain.
  • Visual hallucinations
