Acid Reflux Treatment
Acid reflux is characterised by a chest pain that occurs after eating, lying down or bending over and is most often described as a ‘burning’ sensation.
While acid reflux can be uncomfortable, the condition is treatable with medication. Proton pump inhibitors are a group of medications that suppress the production of stomach acid, neutralising the symptoms of acid reflux.
Our range of acid reflux medications are clinically proven to work quickly and effectively.
Lansoprazole is available in capsule or orodispersible form to effectively treat acid reflux.
