This medicine is produced and labeled in Japan. There is no English language information provided on the packaging. We apologise for any inconvenience caused.

Uses
Protecadin OD (Lafutidine) is used to treat different types of stomach ulcers and gastric mucosal lesions caused by gastritis. In addition to this, it may be given before an operation, as a preanaesthatic drug. This medication belongs to a class of drugs called histamine H2 receptor antagonists, and when taken, it helps to reduce the production of stomach acid and prevent inflammation of the stomach mucosa. Another benefit of treatment with this medicine is that it can speed up gastric mucosa reconstitution.

Dosage and Administration
If you are using Protecadin OD (Lafutidine) tablets to treat any of the conditions listed above, you will need to follow the dosage instructions given to you by your doctor. In the majority of cases, adults treating gastric mucosal lesions caused by acute gastritis (or an acute exacerbation of chronic gastritis) are instructed to take 10mg (one tablet), once per day. The dosage should be taken after eating an evening meal.

Patients treating ulcers are often directed to take 10mg twice per day. The first dose is taken after breakfast, followed by a second dose taken after the evening meal is eaten. If this drug is being used as a preanaesthetic medication, patients are usually told to take 10mg before going to sleep on the day prior to the commencement of surgery, and another 10mg is normally administered 2 hours before the anaesthetic is given.

Side effects
There is a possibility that Protecadin OD (Lafutidine) will cause side effects, such as:

  • Nausea
  • Drowsiness
  • Hard stools
  • Loose stools
  • Sleep difficulties

If you notice any side effects during treatment, inform your doctor. In rare cases, severe reactions are possible. You will need immediate medical treatment if you notice pancytopenia, agranulocytosis, thrombocytopenia or any other serious side effects.

Precautions
If positive results are not observed after treatment with this medication, your doctor may recommend different treatments.

Some patients may need careful observation during treatment.

Seek immediate emergency medical attention if you suffer an allergic reaction. Symptoms to watch for, which may be indicative of a reaction, include skin rashes, hives, swelling of the face or limbs, trouble breathing, and trouble swallowing.

Always use Protecadin OD (Lafutidine) as you have been prescribed by your doctor. Never self-medicate or change your dosage without first consulting your doctor. The correct dosage can vary depending on your health, medical history, and the severity of the condition being treated.
