Common Questions and Answers about How does prevacid work

prevacid

<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>how</span> are you giving the prevacid? It must be on a completely empty stomach, so you cannot give it in milk or formula. This makes it hard to administer to stubborn babies like my little one! Our gastro said ideally, it should be about 30 minutes before a feed as well. Did you stop the Zantac cold turkey? That could be part of the problem. It does take up to 2 weeks to see the full benefits of the prevacid, and in the mean time it is recommended you continue some Zantac.
What is the difference between Prevacid and Nexium in what it <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>does</span> and <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>how</span> it <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>does</span> it? Long term effects?... Is what I am feeling are effects from the aloe healing my esophagus or the medications?
<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>does</span> anyone know if prevacid causes constipation? I was prescribed prevacid for GERD, and have had constipation since third of fourth week of treatment. It helps my refulx better than any or PPI. Anyone else become have constipation on prevacid?
00 am - and all the vitamins in the eve or late at night. Prevacid is an acid inhibitor - so during the course of 10 years - looking at my blood <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>work</span> - i had to supplement the above mentioned Vitamins due course of time. Recently i got diagonsed for open angle glaucoma and had laser surgery. Reading all these posts is a great feeling - not alone.
We have also thickened his milk to reduce the spit up. Nothing seems to <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>work</span>. I may take him off the prevacid and go see a specialist. Let me know if you find out anything new that could help me. Good luck!
that was <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>how</span> I knew the Prevacid was helping intially. I have had numerous ultrasounds, ct scans, enteroclysis, blood work-ups, secretin stimulation test, etc. I guess I can stay on the Prevacid for the rest of my life but I really would like to know why I have severe malaise after eating and RUQ pain if I don't take it. If my stomach makes too much acid, could that cause these symptoms?
This happened to me a couple other times early on when I went off of the Prevacid for some tests; that was <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>how</span> I knew the Prevacid was helping intially.

Aww... poor thing! If you don't mind me asking why did she have heart surgery? My sister has two children and both had bad acid reflex and were colicky and the meds really weren't working very well and so she finally went to a chiropractor and have her babies ajusted. She said it worked wonders!! I thought that sounded so hard for the baby but her little ones never slept in the car no matter how long of a drive and they just didn't sleep good at all...
If it's a pathogen, why is it that only a minority of people who have it ever develop an ulcer? It <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>does</span> not invade epithelium cells, so <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>how</span> can it be a pathogen. And it does not even fulfil the four classic Koch's postulates to be classified as a pathogen! how come there's so much fuss about its elimination?! I asked many doctors about this, but never got a straight answer. And the side effects of both antibiotics and PPIs are just awful!
Please, anyone else on Prevacid for GERD or suspected GERD? <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>how</span> long before I get any relief? I've been taking it for a little over a week now (second try). Doctor only gave me 15 mg.which I take once a day. But, so far, every night I am in horrible pain up into my chest and throat, even after taking a couple of spoonfuls of Mylanta. I am going to try elevating the head of my bed now... I don't know what to eat anymore! Give me some ideas. I only weigh 110lbs now and can't afford to lose.
If there is a little bit left in the syringe, I just put a little more water in there and repeat. And you are right....
The endoscopy showed some minor irritation of the esophagus and I think the stomach also--biopsies didn't yield anything major--negative for H-pylori. Because of the irritation (I still wasn't feeling bad) I was put on Prevacid, 30Mg twice a day.

Hi - <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>does</span> anyone know whether it is ok to use prevacid (or that type of drug - (proton pump blocker) just for symptom relief of erosive gastritis, rather than as a drug that you take religiously every day. does not seem to be anything about it in the literature.
I know as lazy as she is she can't really make me look bad, but I still would rather not <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>work</span> nights and am not sure <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>how</span> to put it to my boss other than telling them how fussy my little guy is. I get maybe 4 hrs a night of interrupted sleep and now I wiull have to work nights too and be up by 5 the next morning to go back in early. Sorry, guess I needed to vent. Any advice? Also feel free to use as an open forum.
When I was a in the ER an older doctor that had worked in the ER for eons gave me the statistics on how many people go to the ER with low right quadrant pain and have appendicitis and the appendix is removed . And <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>how</span> many people actually are sent away because the scan <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>does</span> not show that it is NOT inflammed enough so a large number of people sent away return to the ER months later with APPENDICITIS!
My DD is 11 months and is still on Prevacid. Kris-<span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>how</span> much <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>does</span> Ryan weigh now? Prevacid is weight sensetive and the more weight he gains, the higher dose he'll need.
Prevacid 30 MG per day Pentasa 250 MG
My doctor suggests that I try Norspan/Transtec plasters, <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>does</span> anyone have experience using that for Fib/CFS? I would be very happy to hear from others :) Springtime greetings from Jayjay.
Nexium is helping, not 100% but my condition is much better - at least I'm sleeping through the night now. Any suggetions on <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>how</span> I should proceed to switch over to DCL. <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>how</span> long do you take DCL before you see improvement? Or, can I take both, DCL and Nexium and then try stopping the Nexium?
I do it once in awhile, only take a few drinks and it <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>does</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>work</span>, but because of the high salt content in the baking soda, it's not something to do all the time, just when it gets so bad and I truly can't take it anymore.
I am praying that it's not a fluke and that these new meds will continue to <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>work</span>. We haven't weaned her off of the zantac yet, since it takes the prevacid a while to be fully effective. Also, I hope I am not speaking too soon, but at the exact same time, it seems like most of her sensory issues have magically disappeared. I can't believe what reflux was doing to the poor thing. I was concerned about sensory issues like you describe with James, but maybe we'll luck out.
Ive done all the recommendations, started weight loss, elevated bed, eating bland food, no alcohol, no eating after 7pm etc etc. I was on 20mg omeprazole, did absolutely nothing, so doctor has me now on prevacid 30mg once a day. Even taking prevacid in the morning triggers an acid attack =[ I have to take semi-skimmed milk as water triggers terrible acid. Even wearing a bra is very uncomfortable and makes symptoms worse. Ive to go tomorrow for blood tests and a liver function test.
Do I have more risk of it turning into an arrhythmia that my heart won't get out of? <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>how</span> can I tell if I am having a pvc or a pac? My holter showed 13 pac's and 2 pvc's but I always feel the pause and then a hard thump. Why do they happen more when I run up the stairs or bend over too quickly or am carrying a heavy load? Worried sick.
Do you guys remember me telling you all <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>how</span> my 4 year old got a stomach bug right before Christmas? He only threw up one day and then seemed better but would still occasionally have loose stools and/or say his tummy hurt. This has been going on off and on since. They did do a stool test and it came back normal. Jan. 7th he was throwing up and not keeping anything down.Jan. 8th we took him back to the doctor. He was not eating, saying his tummy hurt and listless.
The medication does alter your proton pumps associated with the acid production in your stomach thus lowering the acid in your stomach. People have different physiology and what might <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>work</span> for one patient might not <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>work</span> for another. To add: this medication is NOT prescribed and then patients aren't being monitored as I am followed up quite closely.
