About Kirkland Signature Lansoprazole

Lansoprazole Delayed-Release Capsules 15 mg is a Proton Pump Inhibitor (PPI). PPIs deactivate the pumps in the stomach lining from producing acid, significantly inhibiting acid production (and its overproduction) at the source.

PPIs include Kirkland Signature Esomeprazole Magnesium Delayed-Release Capsules 20 mg (treats the same symptoms as Nexium® 24HR), Omeprazole Delayed-Release Tablets 20 mg (treats the same symptoms as Prilosec OTC®) and Lansoprazole Delayed-Release Capsules 15 mg (treats the same symptoms as Prevacid® 24HR), to treat frequent heartburn that occurs two or more days per week. These products may take 1 to 4 days to work initially and are not indicated for immediate relief of frequent heartburn.

Understanding Heartburn

Heartburn is a painful, burning sensation in the lower chest or throat that occurs when stomach acid backs up (or 'refluxes') and irritates the sensitive lining of the esophagus.

Normally, the lower esophageal sphincter acts like a trapdoor, letting food down into the stomach, while preventing stomach acids from coming back up into the esophagus. When it becomes too relaxed, it can allow stomach acid to flow backward into the esophagus, resulting in heartburn.

Fact: eating before bed triggers heartburn

You may experience worsening or more frequent heartburn if you routinely eat late at night. Try to eat at least 2-3 hours before bedtime so your body has time to digest before you lie down. Also, elevating the head of your bed may provide additional relief.

Fact: smoking can worsen heartburn

When individuals smoke, it can cause the muscle between the stomach and esophagus to relax, which can contribute to stomach acid refluxing back into the esophagus.

Heartburn Tips

The following tips may help ease or prevent frequent heartburn:

  • Do not lie flat or bend over after eating
  • Do not wear tight-fitting clothing around the stomach
  • Do not eat before bedtime
  • Raise the head of your bed
  • Avoid heartburn-causing foods such as rich, spicy, fatty or fried foods, chocolate, caffeine, alcohol and certain fruits and vegetables
  • Eat slowly and avoid big meals
  • If overweight, lose weight
  • Quit smoking
