    cured the severe acid reflux but within 2 weeks of use I started suffering very severe diarrhea, up to 5 times a day. The GP insisted that it wasn't the medication and tested me from Crohns, gluten allergies all with negative outcome. Eventually I took myself off the medication and the diarrhea stopped. Now on Pantoprazole with no problems 3 months in.

    Main treatment for my Barrett's esophagus. I take 30 MG twice a day for three years and have only had a couple short episodes of reflux. Whereas prior I was sleeping siting up in a recliner and unable to eat many of the same foods as my family. Some impact on regularity and stool consistency, but relative to the benefits I'm quite pleased.

    I've been using Prevacid for over 15 yrs and never had an issue. With change of insurance Previcid now cost me $180 for three month thru Welldyn. Btw, which is a horrible company to deal with. After using lansoprazole oral for a month. I'm gassy, bloated and uncomfortable all day. Plus the medicine is less effective than the name brand Previcid.

    I was given this generic form of Prevacid 30mg, does not work. Previously was on generic Mylan 8030, not a problem for years!!! Within a couple of days taking this Sandoz Pharm. pill, I'm miserable with reflux, nausea, burning in chest and stomach, gas, burping. I'am contacting my mail order pharmacy (Caremark) tomorrow to discuss getting something else that has worked. Very disappoint ... Show Full Comment
