DRUG INTERACTIONS: Drug interactions may change how your medications work or increase your risk for serious side effects. This document does not contain all possible drug interactions. Keep a list of all the products you use (including prescription/nonprescription drugs and herbal products) and share it with your doctor and pharmacist. Do not start, stop, or change the dosage of any medicines without your doctor's approval.Some products that may interact with this drug include: cilostazol, methotrexate (especially high-dose treatment), theophylline, voriconazole.Some products need stomach acid so that the body can absorb them properly (such as ampicillin, atazanavir, dasatinib, erlotinib, nelfinavir, rilpivirine, certain azole antifungals including itraconazole/ketoconazole/posaconazole). Lansoprazole decreases stomach acid, so it may change how well these other products work. Before using lansoprazole, consult your doctor or pharmacist about the other medications you take and for advice on how to reduce or avoid these types of interactions.Lansoprazole is very similar to dexlansoprazole. Do not use medications containing dexlansoprazole while using lansoprazole.
