Also Known As: Lansoprazole, Helicid, Zoton, Inhibitol, Monolitum, Prevacid

Lansoprazole is a proton-pump inhibitor (PPI) which prevents the stomach from producing gastric acid. It is manufactured by a number of companies worldwide under several brand names (some brand names include: Prevacid, Helicid, Zoton, Inhibitol, Monolitum). It was first approved by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) in 1995.

Prevacid patent protection expired on November 10, 2009. As a result, prescription Lansoprazole is now available in the form of a generic drug. As of November 12, 2009 (2009 -11-12), Lansoprazole is available over-the-counter (OTC) in the U.S. in a 15 mg dose marketed by Novartis as Prevacid 24HR.
