Before taking this medicine, inform your doctor if you are using the following medicines:
Esters of ampicillin, digoxin, iron salts and ketoconazole, lansoprazole cause long-term inhibition of gastric acid secretion. Therefore, it may interfere with the absorption of these drugs.
Cyanocobalamin, lansoprazole may reduce the absorption of cyanocobalamin.
Sucralfate delays the absorption of lansoprazole and reduces its bioavailability. Lansoprazole should be taken at least 30 minutes before sucralfate.
