  • Effectiveness
    Major (for Other)
  • Side effects
    Mild (vitamin B12 deficiency, iron deficiency)
  • Adherence
    Always
  • Burden
    Not at all hard to take
Dosage: 30 mg Daily
Advice & Tips: I got Prevacid thru the mail. I waited too long to reorder in Feb and ran out a week before the refill arrived (from Canada). I expected the persistent reflux to reoccur, but it didn't. I have the 90 day supply of Prevacid (can't return an Rx), but I still don't take it because the symptoms haven't resumed.
Cost: $25-49 monthly
Side effects: vitamin B12 deficiency, iron deficiency

Aug 27, 2008 (Started Apr 07, 1999)

  • Effectiveness
    Major (for Other)
  • Side effects
    None
  • Adherence
    Always
  • Burden
    Not at all hard to take
Dosage: 30 mg Daily
Advice & Tips: Long term effect (5 years in my case) of Prevacid on the absorption of Fe & B-12 in the stomach; otherwise, it's been a real wonder drug for me. I have a *very* considerate gastroenterologist who gives me physician samples so I don't have to pay for it because my Rx plan doesn't cover the 30mg capsule (which is what gives me the most relief).
Cost: < $25 monthly
Side effects: vitamin B12 deficiency, iron deficiency
