I have chrons also on Lansaprozol. Is this due to sudden weight gain, a very distended hard abdomen? Is this a side effect from the drug? Try Nexium (esomeprazole)?

2 doctors agree

In brief: With Crohn's

A very distended hard abdomen is more concerning for a developing intestinal obstruction.
These signs are not side effects of lansoprazole.
