Zoton FasTab is a dissolvable pill used to medicate GORD, which can cause symptoms such as heartburn. By lowering levels of stomach acid, this treatment also reduces the risk of stomach ulcers and helps to relieve abdominal pain. In addition to its orodispersible qualities, this pill can also be swallowed whole, or applied via an oral syringe. Zoton FasTab is a branded product made by Pfizer, and is available to buy online from our registered pharmacy.

- Prevents heartburn and acid reflux
Heartburn, despite the name, is actually caused by acid reflux. It occurs when stomach acids creep upwards into the oesophageal tract, and can result in pain and a sense of burning. The bottom of the oesophagus, which is the pipe connecting the mouth to the stomach, is surrounded by a circle of muscles. These muscles act as a gateway, opening to let food into the stomach, and closing again afterwards, so that abrasive acids cannot be expelled upwards.
Causes of acid reflux typically involve the improper function of these muscles. In instances where extra pressure is exerted, they can fail to close, and acid can leak out. This pressure might be due to the stomach being overly full after the consumption of a large meal, drinking high amounts of alcohol, or maintaining a fatty diet. Those who are overweight and smoke are also more likely to get heartburn than those who don’t.
Most people will encounter heartburn at some point in their lives, albeit infrequently. But persistent cases may necessitate treatment. To reduce symptoms, a doctor may suggest addressing those factors which may be contributing to the problem, by advising a person to: cut down portion sizes; lower alcohol consumption; or make adjustments to their dietary habits. If symptoms are more severe, however, prescription medication may be recommended.
The main acting component of Zoton is a substance called lansoprazole, which is a proton pump inhibitor. This works by interfering with the function of proton pumps, which are situated in the stomach and play an integral role in the production of acid. In reducing their activity, lansoprazole decreases the levels of acid produced, and this helps to ease heartburn and other symptoms of acid reflux.
