Common Questions and Answers about How long does it take for prevacid to work


Avatar m tn I don't want to say I am addicted to the xanax, because I certainley don't <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>take</span> it every day, and don't need it for every hour of my life, but I will <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>take</span> it if I feel bad, and it helps. And I have read many message board topics on it, and I haven't read anything wrong with taking it as necessary, as long as it does not become addictive. I am not suggesting it is the answer, but I think the worse I feel, the more doctors tell me I am fine... the more anxiety I get....It's a viscous circle.
Avatar n tn We have also thickened his milk <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>to</span> reduce the spit up. Nothing seems <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>to</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>work</span>. I may <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>take</span> him off the <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>prevacid</span> and go see a specialist. Let me know if you find out anything new that could help me. Good luck!
162948 tn?1205256292 It was hard to get it all mixed and then she choked and hated taking it. Any advice on <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>how</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>to</span> do it better and just general advice on having a baby with acid reflux. Additional info on baby: born at 35 weeks. Heart surgery at 2 weeks. Exclusively breastfeeding. Thanks for your advice.
Avatar n tn I think I know a place to get it now. <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>does</span> it taste REAL bad? <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>does</span> it taste like licorice? For now though I better stay on the prevacid, but will try this as well. What were your symptoms with your reflux? Your husband has it too? Just curious. You gave me so much great info. Thanks again.
Avatar n tn Hi - <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>does</span> anyone know whether it is ok <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>to</span> use <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>prevacid</span> (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.
171768 tn?1324233699 I had bad heartburn when I was pregnant and i was miserable with it. I can't even imagine <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>how</span> hard it must be for these little ones <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>to</span> be suffering all the time, and not understanding it. It breaks my heart...
Avatar n tn We often quickly bury and forget what started it all. Bring everything out and come <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>to</span> know <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>how</span> you reacted <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>to</span> your problem. <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>take</span> it one step at a time and redesign the way you respond. Give yourself and your family some time to adjust to any changes as It will not be easy. If you need help look for those who heal the mind and body together.
Avatar n tn I took my first does 10 mins ago and although it say's to start taking them first thing in the morning, I just had <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>to</span> try it now, <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>how</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>long</span> do they <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>take</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>to</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>work</span>? <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>does</span> anyone else suffer the likes of dull pain sometimes in arms and legs? I take it these are associated with the so called 'acid reflux'? Many thanks in advance for your help.
203342 tn?1328740807 He never showed any symptoms, which his gastroenterologist said is normal of kids his age, because they get used <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>to</span> feeling the dull ache and get used <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>to</span> it, and don't know <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>how</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>to</span> express so much that they have sour burps or a mild tummy ache because they don't really think about it. Then bam, it's like one day something just sets it off, and the stomach aches are really intense, oftentimes with vomiting. Trevor's endoscopy made his reflux flare up.
Avatar n tn Hi and welcome <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>to</span> the GERD forum. May I ask what else in addition to the meds have u been doing/taking? Have u modified ur diet and lifestyle? Found the root cause of ur GERD? Many times u can have symptoms of GERD and that can indicate high or low levels of acid, was a PH study done? Do u get relief using the meds? Did ur Dr suggest u use magnesium supplements as the PPI's can deplete ur system? Did they suggest a probiotic?
Avatar f tn 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> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>to</span> put it <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>to</span> 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.
142722 tn?1281537216 Then when I'm burping her, I'll keep her as upright as possible for as <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>long</span> as possible (when I was on leave, I did it for an hour) It helped. I took her off the zantac when she was 2 months old. She had gotten her immunizations and I had to keep giving her tyenol due to the low grade fever. I didnt want to mix meds so I just stopped and never gave it to her again. Just being very cautious about what I did with her helped alot.
Avatar n tn 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 <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>to</span> switch over <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>to</span> DCL. <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>how</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>long</span> do you take DCL before you see improvement? Or, can I take both, DCL and Nexium and then try stopping the Nexium?
176838 tn?1211463974 If a bedtime medication schedule <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>does</span> not <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>work</span> for you, then you might ask your endocrinologist if it is okay <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>to</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>take</span> your medication with breakfast, have your TSH level reassessed after some time has gone by, and then adjust your dosage level upward to compensate for the fact that you are taking your medication with food. Mechanically, levothyroxine works no differently in the presence of food as in its absence.
Avatar f tn My father in law is on Tramadol 50mg 3 times a day and it use <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>to</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>work</span> for him and now it don't. I think his body is just use to it and it won't work anymore. I am trying to talk him into getting on a new pain med cause I really hate to see him in pain all the time (like me). I have alot of face pain due to some bad dentist working on me and didn't know what they was doing. So I get to live with the pain for the rest of my life.
1222527 tn?1266942156 I have been taking prevacid for 3 weeks straight. You mentioned it didn't help you at first, but then it did. <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>how</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>long</span> until it started working, because mine isn't yet!
Avatar n tn how long should it take for Nexium to start giving pain relief? I have been on it about 5 days & still have bad heartburn. This is after trying prevacid for three weeks with no relief. I am tired of hurting. Background: I am a 47 year old female. In April 2005, a number of non cancerous tumors were found in my abdomen and something was seen on my pancreas; I also threw a piulmonary embolism in that time.
Avatar f tn She said he will have a feeding tube inserted for god knows <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>how</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>long</span>, and that they will have <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>to</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>work</span> very hard surgically to untwist his intestines. So I of course am relieved to know that something was *wrong* and I wasn't just being some cazy lunatic mother, but I was also freaked out about the results and prognosis. I immediatley called my husband, he got a babysitter for the other boys and rushed in.
Avatar n tn Turning to the right alleviates it. It is also sometimes up under my left rib cage. It <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>does</span> not seem <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>to</span> be exertion related. Lately, though, I have been having it all the time, not just at night. It is kind of like little twinges. They are very scary and I sometimes then have an anxiety attack. This includes pounding heart, sweating, nausea, diahrrea, SOB, inability to swallow, total PANIC. I have Xanax but don't like using it and when I do use it I take a miniscule dose.
193245 tn?1189993322 In roughly 45 days I'd owe them somewhere between $1400 and $1600 dollars. It could be that it would be best <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>to</span> go ahead and elect <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>to</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>take</span> COBRA once I get the letter. By the time I get it, the bill wouldn't be due until after I'm covered by the new group plan. I just thought of that. Seems like the thing to do. If I just have to go to the doctor for a sinus problem or something, I'd just pay out of pocket rather than let the insurance take it.
1222635 tn?1366399886 if she is not crying and she is well hydrated maybe the ceral did fill her belly up a little and just needs some time <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>to</span> digest... I hope she starts back on the track you were on it seems <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>to</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>work</span> well for you.... if you are having this heat like I am in PA (106 degrees at the high school down the street yesterday) - I noticed that Olivia was slowing down a bit on the eating front as well... Granted we were making it three hours instead of 2 - but it was noticeable to me..
440728 tn?1234648902 the rhumatoligist just put me on EVOAXC, I have been on it for 2 days but i really don't see that its working, although the pharmasits says it <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>take</span> a few days <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>to</span> a week for some people before the med will start <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>to</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>work</span>. Those of you taking EVOAXC or that have ever taken it, how long should it take before i see any changes and what should i notice, how will my saliva be? Is there any other advice that anyone can give me.
Avatar n tn Gulp it all down with that powder mixed ice tea?? so wise up,and eat sensibly. it <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>does</span> not hurt <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>to</span> fast and meditate every now and then??must we all eat and drink to oblivion!!!!!!!
Avatar m tn I myself have had a horrible time with GERD for a long time and due to other health issues just never got around to getting a proper diagnoses and treatment for it.
Avatar n tn I've been taking prevacid and/or Nexium for 2 weeks and haven't noticed any changes in the way that I feel. <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>does</span> it <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>take</span> a while for these medications <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>to</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>work</span> enough for me <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>to</span> notice a difference? I have researched GERD on the internet, and see that some people need long-term drug intervention - especially those, like myself, who have the hernia & LES problem. It says that my symptoms will return if drug therapy is discontinued.
193609 tn?1292183893 I will probably call and make an appointment because it is at a very large university so who knows <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>how</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>long</span> it would <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>take</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>to</span> get in, so I can always cancel it if I decide not to go. I just can't help wondering if this is not another peice to the puzzle! Since, we still have NO idea what is wrong with him, maybe this is another sign!!!
148354 tn?1211237506 I just wanted to thank you all for sharing your stories, and giving me the drive to look into this, and push <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>to</span> get it done. You really do need <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>to</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>take</span> your health into your own hands and push for treatment. It's difficult when you're very sick but it really pays off. All the best to all of you.
164914 tn?1269577507 He has been on it for a two days and it doesn't seem to be helping at all yet( it even seems a little worse) My question is have any of you moms had any luck putting there baby on Zantac? <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>how</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>long</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>does</span> it usuaully <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>take</span> <span style = 'background-color: #dae8f4'>to</span> start working? Do you have any advice for dealing with a baby with acid reflux? does it get better with time? Any advice is helpful. Thanks!
