Lansoprazole Side Effects

Rare Side Effects

There are other possible side effects that can occur with lansoprazole. These rare side effects occur in less than 1 percent of patients. For these side effects, it is difficult to tell whether the side effect is caused by the medication or something else.
 
Some of these possible lansoprazole side effects include but are not limited to:
 
  • Broken bones (some studies suggest this or other similar medications may increase the risk of bone fractures)
  • Low blood magnesium (hypomagnesemia).
 

Final Thoughts

It is possible that you may experience some or none of these lansoprazole side effects. Unfortunately, there is no way for your healthcare provider to know beforehand if you will have side effects from a medicine that you have never tried.
 
Therefore, make sure to let your healthcare provider know if you develop any side effects. Also, tell your healthcare provider if you develop something that "just does not seem right." While it may not be a side effect of lansoprazole, your healthcare provider should be able to diagnose and treat the problem.
