Product Description

Size: 28-Count

Prevacid24HR is an over the counter treatment for frequent heartburn (occurring 2 or more days a week).
Beyond the Basics of Heartburn

The basic symptoms of heartburn are well known and include burning in the chest area and pain when lying down. Isolated to one instance, heartburn can be tolerated. But what if you are experiencing heartburn two or more days a week and your sleep, daily activities, and overall quality of life are being affected by these symptoms of heartburn? Frequent heartburn may affect your ability to focus at work. And then there's the stress factor of heartburn that can make you seem ill-tempered or moody. You might even find it difficult to fully enjoy social occasions. Some also find it hard to sleep due to heartburn. Why should these symptoms be tolerated? They shouldn’t. In fact, ignoring symptoms of frequent heartburn can lead to severe complications.

How Do You Know If You Are Experiencing Frequent Heartburn?

If you are experiencing heartburn two or more days a week, you are experiencing what is referred to as “frequent heartburn.” You’re not alone – more than 50 million American adults are affected by frequent heartburn. Below are a few symptoms that you probably know all too well:

  • Burning in the chest just below or behind the breast bone
  • Coughing or wheezing
  • Pain that gets worse when you're lying down
Causes of Frequent Heartburn
  • Going to bed or laying down soon after eating
  • Drinking alcohol
  • Smoking cigarettes
  • Indulging in fatty or spicy foods
  • Eating certain fruits and vegetables like citrus, tomatoes, and onions
  • Drinking soda, coffee, and other carbonated or caffeinated beverages
  • Eating chocolate and mints
  • Sometimes healthy choices, such as a good diet and regular exercise, can help you avoid the usual symptoms of heartburn. There is also a cause of heartburn you might not think about as often, and it's called stress. This is a not-so-obvious factor of heartburn that can sneak up on you, so think about what might be causing you stress and explore ways to manage it.
Managing Your Frequent Heartburn

The good news is that with Prevacid24HR, along with a few lifestyle adjustments and regular check-ups with your doctor, frequent heartburn which occurs 2 or more days a week can be fairly easy to manage. But how do you know if Prevacid24HR is the right heartburn treatment for you? Below are a few different types of over-the-counter heartburn treatments.

Antacids reduce the effects of stomach acid and are usually taken for short-term relief. Many antacids are available as chewable tablets.

H2 blockers reduce the amount of acid your stomach makes. They relieve symptoms for a longer period of time than antacids, but may not last as long as PPIs.

PPIs,short for Proton Pump Inhibitors, are for the treatment of frequent heartburn. They may provide longer-term relief than antacids or H2s by significantly reducing the production of acid in the stomach. PPIs are available over-the-counter. Prevacid24HR is a PPI. So What Differentiates Prevacid24HR? Prevacid24HR is the only branded OTC frequent heartburn medicine that contains the active ingredient lansoprazole. Prevacid24HR prevents acid that causes frequent heartburn for a full 24 hours, with one pill a day for 14 days. It works by reducing the release of acid from the "proton pumps" in the stomach

I like the capsules and take it every day.
Jeffrey A. Piper
It's even cheaper than buying it on sale at my local grocery store combined with a coupon, so it's a no brainer.

I highly recommend this product to anyone that suffers with GERD, Heart Burn, or Reflux.

prevacid does work well if you take the correct dosage. I took prevacid by prescription 30mgs and it work wonders on my reflux. Then I stopped taking it and it came back. Doctor put me on acipex, then my health insurance starting charging a 100 dolloar co pay. I started to take prevacid otc, but only took on pill 15mgs. the refux came back in a few days. I looked at the bottle and realized it was half of prescription strength and starting taking two pills. reflux improved after days and no problems since. its not unusual a drug that goes otc to have a lower dosage than when it was available by sript. so if it is not working for you, take two pills at once and you will be taking prescription strength dosage.

Our current prescription copay for the solutab form of Prevacid is $90 per month and insurance pays the rest. Our daughter needs to take Prevacid for acid control as she has GERD. She is 3 years of age now and takes the contents of one capsule twice daily with applesauce or pudding as a base. We save at least $30 per month by purchasing OTC Prevacid without insurance and avoiding the high cost of the solutabs. Our daughter's G.I. specialist gave the approval to switch to this medication form. I hope this information is helpful to other sufferers of GERD or caregivers of children/elderly with this condition.

I used Nexium until recently, until my insurance up the drug to Tier 1 ($60.00 co-pay). I've tried Prilosec OTC, but like others I've experienced unwanted side-effects (mild cramping, most notably). Recently I tried Prevacid OTC, and at first I was disappointed because it seemed to last only part of the day. So I tried taking it twice a day (somewhat equivalent to the 20mg of Nexium I had been taking once a day), and that works just fine for me. Of course, that also makes it roughly twice as expensive as Prilosec OTC, but I do like the fewer side-effects and it works almost as well as Nexium...

As a long time acid reflux sufferer and a long time consumer of every acid reducing product under the sun, I can say that PrevAcid is the best of the best "for my particular problem". I stress the last part of that statement because with any medication or ANY product for that matter, individual results will vary... and no I'm not a paid actor...haha.

A few years ago, I was forced by my insurance carrier to switch from the prescription version of PrevAcid to their preferred brand which was Nexium. I had excellent results "initially" from Nexium, but over time my bowel movements started becoming very very irregular, to the point of actually ending up in the ER. Since Nexium was the only medication I was taking, it was fairly evident what was causing the problem. I decided it was time to make a switch and I started taking Prilosec OTC. That product also worked well at preventing my acid reflux, but yet again my bowel movements were still not regular even with increasing my fiber intake. Thankfully for me this was right around the time when PrevAcid became available as an OTC product and I could not wait to make the switch. It was the best decision I ever made, because even though the milligrams per dose are essentially half of the prescription version it is just as effective for me and I can happily say that my bathroom routine has returned to its norm.

If you're like me and you have to take an acid reducer on a regular basis then I suggest you also enroll in the Amazon "subscribe & save" renewal program. It saves me money, it's delivered right to my door, and I don't have to worry about accidentally running out of my PrevAcid at the worst possible time. It's even cheaper than buying it on sale at my local grocery store combined with a coupon, so it's a no brainer.

great product and fast service. I have tried all the proton pump inhibitors and this is by far the one that works the best. I had to buy it online because all the local drugstores were out. The product was legit and works great.

Years ago, my stomach problems got so bad, I was out of work for 3 months & my stomach/intestinal specialist ran many different tests on me. At the end of it, all she came up with was that I have a 'nervous stomach'-all of my stress went right to my stomach, causing massive acidic fluctuations. She recommended this product. Throughout the years, I have tried to stop taking the Prevacid, but never go longer than a week; the same pain always comes back.
**This is for everyone with constant heartburn**
I have not only felt better overall since taking this small pill once a day, I don't eat near as much as I used to-I have lost just over 90 lbs in the last few years. (my stomach doesn't burn all the time like I'm hungry-so I eat less & ONLY when I am truly hungry!)
I am SO happy this can be bought over-the-counter now; when I started taking it, it was by 'script only. I have no insurance, so this little miracle pill is very easy to find online. I like the prices on amazon & the shipping has always been very fast.
I HIGHLY RECOMMEND this to ANYONE who has *overactive stomach acid, *nervous stomach, *frequent heartburn, etc You will NOT be disappointed!!
