    These 3 drugs all work by inhibiting the proton pump in gastric parietal cells and are effective short-term treatment for gastric or duodenal ulcer or used in triple therapy against H. pylori.

    They differ from the dose and the details in usage.

    For example, for duodenal ulcer, lansoprazole: 30-60 mg once daily, omeprazole: 20-40 mg once daily and pantoprazole: 40 mg once daily.

    All proton pump inhibitors should be uesd with caution in patients liver disease, pregnancy and breast-feeding, but pantoprazole should also be used with caution in the presence of renal impairment.

    Hope this can help.
