Epicurus – antiulcer drug. Specific proton pump inhibitor (H + -K + -ATPase).
Metabolized in parietal cells of the gastric mucosa to active sulfonamide derivatives that inhibit sulfhydryl groups of H + -K + -ATPase. It blocks the final stage of hydrochloric acid synthesis, reducing basal and stimulated secretion, regardless of the nature of the stimulus.
The use of the drug in a dose of 30 mg causes a decrease in gastric secretion of hydrochloric acid by 80-97%. The inhibitory effect increases over 4 days. After discontinuation of the drug, acidity remains below 50% of the basal level for 39 hours, no ricocheting increase in secretion is noted.
Secretory activity is restored 3-4 days after taking the drug. The drug does not affect the motility of the digestive tract.
In patients with Zollinger-Ellison syndrome, the drug lasts longer.
Peptic ulcer of the stomach and duodenum (in the acute phase), erosive-ulcerative esophagitis, reflux esophagitis, Zollinger-Ellison syndrome, stress ulcers of the gastrointestinal tract eradication Helicobacter pylori (as part of combination therapy), non-ulcer dyspepsia.

For eradication of Helicobacter pylori – 30 mg 2 times a day for 10-14 days in combination with antibacterial therapy.
For anti-relapse treatment of peptic ulcer of the stomach and duodenum – 30 mg / day.
For anti-relapse treatment of reflux esophagitis – 30 mg / day for a long time (up to 6 months).
In Zollinger-Ellison syndrome, the dose is selected individually until basal secretion level is reached
From the central nervous system: headache rarely – malaise, dizziness, drowsiness, depression, anxiety.
From the digestive system: decreased or increased appetite, nausea, abdominal pain rarely – diarrhea, constipation in isolated cases – ulcerative colitis, gastrointestinal candidiasis, increased activity of liver transaminases, hyperbilirubinemia.
From the respiratory system: rarely – cough, pharyngitis, rhinitis, upper respiratory tract infection, flu-like syndrome.
From the hemopoietic system: rarely – thrombocytopenia (with hemorrhagic manifestations) in some cases – anemia.
Allergic reactions: skin rash in some cases – photosensitivity, erythema multiforme.
Other: extremely rare – myalgia, alopecia.
Slows the elimination of drugs metabolized in the liver by microsomal oxidation (including diazepam, phenytoin, indirect anticoagulants). Reduces theophylline clearance by 10%. Changes the pH-dependent absorption of drugs belonging to the groups of weak acids (deceleration) and bases (acceleration). Compatible with ibuprofen, indomethacin, diazepam, propranolol, warfarin, oral contraceptives, phenytoin, prednisolone. Sucralfate reduces bioavailability by 30% (the interval between these drugs for 30-40 min must be observed). Antacids slow and reduce absorption (they should be administered 1 h before or 1-2 h after lansoprazole).
The product should be stored in a dry, dark place at a temperature not exceeding 25 ° C.
