Sucralfate (Carafate) will decrease the amount of lansoprazole that is absorbed through the stomach. Lansoprazole should be taken at least 30 minutes before sucralfate to prevent an interaction. Some medications may have decreased effects because lansoprazole hinders their absorption from the stomach. Tell your doctor if you are taking any of these medications: ketoconazole (Nizoral), ampicillin (Omnipen, Principen), digoxin (Lanoxin, Lanoxicaps), and iron (Feosol, Mol-Iron, Fergon, Femiron). Drugs other than those listed here may also interact with lansoprazole. Talk to your doctor and pharmacist before taking any prescription or over-the-counter medicines, including herbal products.
