PREVACID DRUG INFO


IIMPORTANT NOTE: What should my health care professional know before I take Prevacid?

LANSOPRAZOLE - ORAL

COMMON BRAND NAME(S): Prevacid®

USES: prevents the production of acid in the stomach.

HOW TO USE: How should I take this medicine? Take lansoprazole capsules by mouth. Follow the directions on the prescription label. Swallow the Prevacid capsules whole with a drink of water; do not crush or chew. Lansoprazole works best if taken on an empty stomach. It is best to take the capsules 30 to 60 minutes before food. Take your doses at regular intervals. Do not take your medicine more often than directed.

SIDE EFFECTS: What side effects may I notice from taking lansoprazole? Side effects that you should report to your prescriber or health care professional as soon as possible. Rare or uncommon:; dark yellow or brown urine; fever or sore throat; unusual skin rash, blistering, or peeling; unusual bleeding or bruising; yellowing of the eyes or skin; vomiting Side effects that usually do not require medical attention (report to your prescriber or health care professional if they continue or are bothersome):; abdominal pain; diarrhea or constipation; headache; nausea

PRECAUTIONS: What should I watch for while taking Prevacid? It can take several days of therapy with lansoprazole before your stomach pains improve. Check with your prescriber or health care professional if your condition does not improve, or if it gets worse. You can take antacids for the occasional relief of pain unless your prescriber or health care professional tells you otherwise.
 
DRUG INTERACTIONS WITH PREVACID: Sucralfate (Carafate), which is also used to treat stomach conditions, will decrease the amount of lansoprazole that is absorbed through the stomach. Lansoprazole should be taken at least 30 minutes before sucralfate to prevent an interaction.
 
Some other medications such as ketoconazole (Nizoral), ampicillin (Omnipen, Principen), digoxin (Lanoxin, Lanoxicaps), and iron (Feosol, Mol-Iron, Fergon, Femiron) may have decreased effects because lansoprazole hinders their absorption from the stomach. Tell your doctor if you are taking any of these medications.
 
Drugs other than those listed here may also interact with lansoprazole. Talk to your doctor and pharmacist before taking any prescription or over-the-counter medicines including vitamins, minerals, and herbal products.
 
OVERDOSE: If overdose is suspected, contact your local poison control center or emergency room immediately. Symptoms of overdose may include restlessness, fever, fast breathing, dizziness, confusion, hallucinations, panic or paranoid, drowsiness, convulsions, unconsciousness, unusually fast or slow heart beat, headache, nausea/vomiting, diarrhea, stomach pain, pale or flushing, chest pain, sweating, muscle weakness, agitation, large pupils, or delusions.

NOTES: If you have difficulty swallowing Prevacid, you may open the Prevacid® capsule and sprinkle the contents on a tablespoon of any of the following foods: applesauce, pudding, cottage cheese, yogurt, or a spoonful of Ensure® drink. Do not crush the contents of the capsule into the food. Swallow the dose immediately after preparing it; do not chew. Follow with a drink of water
