Hi - been taking Lansoprazole 30mg capsules once a day for last 10days, symptoms just the same really --- do they take a while to start to work??Went to see GP with excessive burping & felt like a lump in my throat.
No difficulty swallowing food or drink.

Dear customer,

Thank you for the question.

For your symptoms which may be due to reflux of acidity and injury to the esophagus, it may take around 4 weeks for the lesion to heal in the esophagus and for you to feel a relief in your symptoms.

Take care.
