Were you looking for information about Lansoprazole? Lansaprozole is a common misspelling of lansoprazole.
Lansoprazole (Prevacid®) is approved to treat the symptoms of several conditions involving the esophagus, stomach, and intestines. In particular, the prescription form of this medication can help to treat problems such as gastroesophageal reflux disease (GERD), stomach ulcers, and erosive esophagitis. The nonprescription form is approved to treat frequent heartburn. Because this is a proton pump inhibitor (PPI), it helps to reduce the amount of acid produced in the stomach by blocking acid production sites. Make sure to seek immediate medical attention if you think you may have overdosed on this medication.
