I tried to get off of it but i can't. My somach is very gassey.I have stomach ulcers.I'm sure there from taking all the medications i have for many years.Even tylenol.Is it ok to still be on this medication because from what i've read many people are on it short term.I take methotrexate, plaquenil,prednisone,motoprolol, folic acid,sucralfate, aggernox,iron pills,calcium,vitamin d, & tylenol & of course lansoprazole.I've been taking these meds many yrs. Thats why i have ulcers.Do i need to be on lansoprazole maybe for life ? Thanks for your help.

You need to direct this question to the prescriber. It will depend on why you are taking them. If you are taking Lansoprazole to counter the side effects if your meds then you will need to continue you taking them while you take your other meds. If your stomach ulcers are not from your meds then you should look at other treatments to help heal your ulcer. All the best.
