A probability of the development of the peptic ulcers and erosions on the walls of the digestion tract is increased during the high acidity of the gastric juice. In order to reduce the acidity of the gastric juice and prevent the development of ulcers, doctors recommend taking Prevacid.
What is Prevacid?
Prevacid is a specific proton pump inhibitor which contains an active ingredient Lansoprazole.
In order to accelerate the process of healing of ulcers in the gastro-intestinal tract, Prevacid slows down a production of the hydrochloric acid, so that the acidity of the gastric juice is reduced. Using Prevacid enhances the production of the protective mucus which covers the walls of the stomach and protects them against the effect of the hydrochloric action.
The pharmacological action of Prevacid begins in an hour after the use of the single therapeutic dose. This drug can be used to reduce heartburn, or for the prolonged treatment of the gastric ulcers.
Lansoprazole provides a selective action and blocks only the work of the proton pump. In generation, the motion of the gastro-intestinal tract is kept, and therefore patients tolerate Prevacid well.
Indications for the use
- Zollinger-Ellison syndrome.
- Gastric and duodenal ulcer caused by stress, drug use or high content of hydrochloric acid in the gastric juice.
- Erosive Esophagitis.
In what dose should be Prevacid used?
The standard therapy of the ulcer of the stomach and duodenum lasts for 4 to 8 weeks. The longer use of Prevacid is pointless because ulcers are completely healed and the functions of the gastro-intestinal tract are restored within 2 months.
In case of the gastric ulcer caused by the hypersecretion of the hydrochloric acid, Prevacid is used in the dose of 30 mg 2 times per day. The first part should be used before breakfast, and the second one is used in the evening.
In case of the preventing the gastric ulcer during the use of the non-steroid anti-inflammatory drugs, Prevacid is used in the dose of 30 mg per day within entire use of NSAID. Senior patients should not exceed the daily dose of Prevacid 30 mg.
- Patients under 18 years are contraindicated to take Prevacid.
- Prevacid is not recommended during pregnancy. However, if your doctor allows using the drug during pregnancy, it is necessary to take the minimal dose 30 mg and regularly have a gynecological examination.
- If malignant neoplasms are detected, Prevacid is strictly contraindicated.
In general, Prevacid is well tolerated, however the side effects can occur in some cases. The side effects often appear in the form of nausea, diarrhea, flatulence, and feeling of anxiety. If you feel strong side effects, it is necessary to temporarily lower the daily dose.
