I am currently prescribed lansoprazole caplet 30 mg 2x a day along with carafate 20 ml 4 x day for extremely discomforting acid reflux and gastritis. I just under went surgery for an ulcer and the surgeon also found an internal hernia in my bowel all was repaired about six weeks ago. Still no improvement in pain from gastritis and acid reflux. Question is does anybody have a problem absorbing lansoprazole in caplet form maybe this why this medication is not working? My surgery was done in July of 2017.
