I was relieved to find that this OTC version of Prevacid worked the first day. I'm glad this lower dose form was effective. It relieved the gnawing stomach pain, nausea, and the acid burning up into my throat. After a week or so, I could talk or read out loud without getting hoarse and sing without hurting my vocal chords. I could finally eat and drink anything I wanted without suffering, and I could lay down without choking. Before taking Prevacid, I would have a horrible night cough due to all the throat irritation from the acid and it would make me vomit. My stomach would churn up acid whether empty or full, it didn't matter, and my throat was almost always sore.

The side effect I experienced mainly was a digestive change. I got gassy much more easily while taking this medicine. However, I rather deal with a gas bubbles cramp than acid reflux.

Before Prevacid I was using TUMS or a regular calcium supplement tablet and Famotidine 20mg twice a day, which decreased but never eliminated my acid reflux symptoms. If you have bad acid reflux and calcium and/or H2 blockers aren't enough, Prevacid might be worth trying. It's the first PPI I've ever tried, but it worked for me.

2-15 mg OTC Prevacid does not = 30 mg

Very disappointed with the product. 2-15 mg OTC Prevacid is not equal in effectiveness to the 30mg brand name Prevacid time-release capsule.

      I have suffered from acid reflux on and off for years. It especially comes on in the evenings. It is a very uncomfortable condition putting a damper on your day and night. This product works for me. I take it for 7 days and everything settles right down. Couldn't live without it.

                      this works to reduce stomach acid as no other. must be taken before problem happens, not after the acid is already in the stomach causing problems.
