Doctors' Answers to "Frequently Asked Questions" - Lansoprazole
These comments are made for the purpose of discussion and should NOT be used as
recommendations for or against therapies or other treatments. An individual patient is
always advised to consult their own physician.
Question: I have been taking Lansoprazole 30 mg for about 15 days. After
about 8 days I started to have pain in my chest, and my heart was beating faster then
normal. I went to the doctor, had a EKG, and they said my heart looked and sounded good.
This only happens every once in a while. Could Lansoprazole be making my chest and heart
beat fast? I didnt have this problem until I started taking Lansoprazole.
Answer: Wouldn't be common, but irregular beats are listed in
the occasional symptoms of the drug in the PDR. Stop it and see.
