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.
