How L 30mg Capsule works:
Use of Arlan in infants (children < 1 year of age) may commonly cause diarrhea, constipation, stomach upset, and flatulence. It may make infants irritable and inconsolable and difficult to sleep. Long-term use may cause inflammation of the pancreas, irritable colon, stool discoloration, growth of fungus in food pipe, stomatitis, abdominal swelling, mucosal atrophy of the tongue and decrease absorption of vitamins and minerals. Some may have severe allergic reactions also.
Q. How is Arlan given through the nasogastric tube?
Open the Arlan capsule and empty the granules into a syringe. Mix the contents with apple juice in the syringe and attach it to the nasogastric (NG) tube and give directly into the stomach. Once given, flush the NG tube with more apple juice to clear the tube.
Q. Does long term use of Arlan is associated with side effects?
Patients taking Arlan for a long period of time (a year or longer) may have decreased calcium levels leading to an increased risk of fractures of the hip, wrist, or spine. It can also decrease magnesium levels when used for more than 3 months. Long-term use may also cause inflammation of stomach lining (atrophic gastritis). Take Arlan only at the dose and for duration advised by your doctor
Q. Does Arlan treat irritable bowel syndrome (IBS)?
Arlan is not routinely used for the treatment of irritable bowel syndrome (IBS). It is given if there is associated dyspepsia or increased stomach acid secretion. IBS is managed with a combination of antispasmodics (to relieve stomach pain), laxatives (to relieve constipation), and anti-motility drugs (to relieve diarrhea).
Q. While taking Arlan, which foods should be avoided?
You should preferably avoid foods that cause acidity and heartburn as they would aggravate your disease condition, for example: fried foods, prepared in butter or oil, fat rich foods, tomato-based foods and juices, caffeinated drinks like cola, tea, drinks from citrus fruits like lemon water or orange juice and alcohol-containing drinks.
Q. Is Arlan used for children?
Yes, Arlan is used in the management of gastroesophageal reflux disease (GERD) and erosive gastritis in children. However, the safety and effectiveness of Arlan are established only in children between 1 to 17 years of age.
