I have been taking Lanzaprozole - 30mg - since I was diagnosed with PMR in June. Never had an issue with it and never really thought about it. However, my son has been taking it along with some strong antibiotics biotics following surgery and has suffered crippling stomach acid attacks. Got me thinking as to what I was putting into my body and what harm I could be doing to it. Researched a bit and it seems it is only meant to be short term thing.... My question is can I just stop taking it or is it a taper thing? I'll ring my GP this week, but I'm not filled with confidence that I will get a straight or informed answer.
Thank you in advance - I know one of you will know👍
