Prevacid

How does it help acid reflux disease?
Prevacid, commonly known as a proton pump inhibitor, helps prevent stomach acid production (usually during digestion) by turning off many of the acid-producing pumps found in your body. Which in turn, greatly reduces the searing pain that occurs when stomach acid backs up, or refluxes, into the esophagus.
Can ulcers be healed with Prevacid?
Gastric ulcers (stomach ulcers), duodenal ulcers (ulcers in the first part of the intestine), and even stomach ulcers caused by continuous use of pain medications called NSAIDs (nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs, such as aspirin, ibuprofen and naproxen) have been proven to be alleviated with daily use of Prevacid.
Research has shown that 4 out of 5 H. pylori-negative (bacteria known to cause peptic ulcers) patients on NSAIDs remained ulcer-free after 12 weeks.
What are some symptoms of acid reflux disease?
The most common symptom of acid reflux disease is persistent heartburn.
Other symptoms may include:

  • A sour taste in your mouth
  • Difficulty swallowing
  • Coughing or hoarseness
  • Belching or regurgitation
  • Chest pain not related to your heart

Common side effects.
You may have a low occurence of diarrhea, abdominal pain and nausea. Other serious stomach conditions can not be ruled out with symptom relief.
If side effects persist or worsen while taking Prevacid, consult your physician.
