How should I take Prevacid SoluTab?

Prevacid SoluTab (lansoprazole) is a tablet that dissolves in your mouth. Put it into your mouth using dry hands and let it dissolve. Don't chew, crush, cut, or break the tablet. Swallow the particles as they dissolve.

You may also use the tablet with an oral syringe. Place the tablet in the syringe and then draw up water in the amount directed by your doctor. Shake the syringe until the tablet dissolves and then empty the mixture in your mouth. Add additional water to the syringe and empty it again into your mouth to be sure you have received all the medicine. If you use a nasogastric feeding tube, follow these same steps. However, instead of emptying the syringe in your mouth, empty the syringe contents into the feeding tube.
