From this study (2 years ago):
I have been prescribed the lansoprazole for reflux but think it may be causing my otherwise undiagnosed dizziness.I have missed a couple of days but the reflux has become very severe. At the time I missed the lansoprazole i was prescribed the prochlorperazine maleate ( not 1 month as shown above ).
My concerns are that some of this is causing weight gain, i have started a healthy eating plan but the weight is piling on. And also that some of these may react with each other or be counter productive.
