Lansoprazole Orodispersible price drop

The manufacturer of Lansoprazole Orodispersible Tablets (Zoton FasTabs®) has written to healthcare professionals informing them of a price reduction on this product effective from 1st September 2006.

28 x 15mg tablets have seen the price drop from £10.86 to £5.97; this is £1.80 per month more than lansoprazole 15mg capsules (£4.17 in August 2006 Drug Tariff).

28 x 30mg tablets have seen the price drop from £19.88 to £11.00; this is £4.73 per month more than lansoprazole 30mg capsules (£6.27 in August 2006 Drug Tariff).

Action: Despite this welcome cost reduction lansoprazole capsules are still the first choice PPI.

  1. As a patient who has tried other manufacturers versions of Lansoprazole Dispersible tablets which have made me ill with an upset stomach I must say that Zoton Fastab are the best available and I have had no problems at all with them. The price reduction has helped many people receive them on prescription. Price reductions always help and should not be a factor in prescribing these tablets.
