 3  Severe reflux, hiatal hernia My stomach is addicted to it. It does not work 100% but helps a lot. I am not absorbing my nutrients because of long term use and have serious health problems from this. I was able to stop taking it for 2 months with the help of a Naturopathic Physician (a Functional Medicine Doctor would be better) but my reflux and indigestion became so bad again that I had to start taking it again. I went grain free, sugar free, dairy free which has made a big difference in my gut. F 66 20 years

 5  gerd, loose lower esoph sphincter I've been taking Prevacid for 19 years, (no option over 10 years given) since 1995 with no side effects. Had extreme malaise of u/o while taking Prilosec for 2 years and it disappeared when I came off of it for some tests. After tests and endoscopy, I was put on Prevacid and have been extremely pleased, taking one when I wake up in morning and rarely having to take a second in the late afternoon. No problems!

 3  Gastritis without h pylori Worked well in the beginning and eliminated my stomach pains due to acid. However 1 month after taking I started to experience fullness in my stomach, decreased appetite, a lot of gas, food staying in my stomach longer than normal, constipation. I ended up not able to eat at all because of the constant feeling of fullness! I stopped Prevacid cold turkey and in 2 days these symptoms disappeared. I am now taking Pepcid instead. Don't plan to go back to Prevacid, terrible side effects. F 39 4 months

 2  Gerd due to hiatel hernina Here are some facts Big pharma are hiding from you. Drug is addictive ,so you will get rebound when you stop. Places you at higher risk for heart disease due to vitamin depletion from long term use and stomach and esophageal cancers due to H Pylori and ulcers. Check for Candida, h pylori, remove heavy metals from teeth and body, and remove refined sugar and carbs from diet. Choose organic foods for better health. Finally, get stomach acid levels as symptoms may be because of low stomach acid levels M 1.5 years

 1  Ulcer/reflux MS type symptoms in legs- chills going down back of legs, random shooting pains in legs and feet, strange twinges in legs while sitting. Lower back pain, fatigue, IBS symptoms and horrible anxiety Initially, it helped my symptoms. Then the nightmare began. Was convinced something was terribly wrong with me (MS or something). Decided to research side effects and sure enough, leg twitches, etc were reported. Went off of this 5 days ago and the leg symptoms have stopped completely, anxiety is gone and I am slowly regaining energy back again. NO more PPIs for me! F 32 4 months

 2  GERD, dysperia, pssoble H Plylori This drug is so nasty because of long term use. I've now got IBS issues, enflamed esophagitis, dsyperia, mood swings that have gotten worse. The best [art is the drug has backfired on me making my acid cells go bizerk. What I mean is because my acid cells have been off for so long my body is producing excess acid to make up with more acid cells. The worst part is I'm hooked on it and nobody is concerned about me being hooked on it. Same reaction for long term effects for this drug. Don't worry the drug companies don't want you to know that it's addictive and will make you worse. They got about $16 billion reasons to hide this. (that is projected sales in 2013) M 1.5 years

 1  Gerd Severe stomach pain, constantly starving and not able to be satisfied eating, joint pains, muscle cramps, cough, depression, fatigued, not sleeping well, hands shaking, chills, diarrhea, bloated, heart pounding, neck pain and developed acne on chin and sore in mouth, stomach gurgling. This medicine just about ruined my life for a month and the pain was so bad in my stomach I ended up in the emergency room. They thought I had ulcers and just had an endoscopy. Stopped taking the Prevacid 4 days before my endoscopy and improved immediately! Getting my life back and everything returning to normal. Also made my stools pale and that is returning to normal again as well. I do not have any ulcers! Prevacid in my opinion is poison. F 52 4 weeks

 4  Acid reflux None. Works for me. But I know the causal effects of low stomach acid and low absorbsion rates of vitamins and minerals from food, so I have been taking a good multivitamin and calcium/magnesium supplement for years (even before I got acid reflux). I am wondering, though, about all the increased incidents of acid reflux, intestinal problems, pancreatic and stomach problems that have been on a substantial rise ever since 1996 when Monsanto started marketing their GMO grown corn and soybean products. The GMO means genetically modified, which means that a pesticide like roundup was placed into the gene of the corn or soybean which would cause an insect's stomach to explode if they ate the food. Soy and corn are used in nearly every food product we buy. Acid reflux and other intestinal diseases used to be quite rare here in the U.S. F 53 14 years

 2  Acid Reflux Extreme nausea, bad diarrhea, fatigue, vivid dreams, very bad stomach cramping and bloating that would get worse by the evening. Had bad reflux after having a cardiac heart ablation that damaged a stomach nerve. Doc prescribed PPI to take for a month until stomach nerve grew back. Tried Zantac, did nothing. Then tried Prilosec, which worked but it gave me such bad insomnia I was a walking zombie. Next Prevacid, which also worked very well, but the side effects are more extreme. I take it in the morning, and after 45 min, the fatigue hits like I took a sleeping pill. As soon as I eat breakfast, get horrible nausea like I'm going to be sick, stomach cramps, and then running to the bathroom. By the evening, almost doubled over in pain from the stomach cramps. It does not give me insomnia, but I will take the insomnia Prilosec gives me over Prevacid's miserable side effects. I gave it almost 2 weeks to see if side effects would go away, and they did not. Unfortunately cannot try any other PPIs as my insurance does not cover them, even if I've tried other meds. Wish modern medicine would find a way to make a better PPI without all these side effects.

 1  Acid reflux from hiatus hernia Atrial fibrillation attributed (now!) to hypomagnesia caused by this drug. BEWARE LONG TERM USE. I thought that this was a wonderful drug. No heartburn, no side effects. Around 10 years ago I started getting bouts of atrial fibrillation which became longer and longer. Eventually I had a pulmonary vein ablation. It didn't work, neither did the 4 other attempts at this rather risky procedure work. I was contemplating a pacemaker when I decided to do my own research. I found an FDA warning on the long term use of PPIs and hypomagnesia leading to heart arythmias. I went cold turkey on the Prevacid and no more AF! Although the first two weeks were difficult with extremely bad heartburn, it's no longer a problem. Losing weight has helped too. That's 10 years of my life I won't get back.... F 59 14 years

 3  GERD, Esophagus spasms Drunk-like fatigue! Vivid dreams I have taken Pantoprazole but it made me so tired that I asked to try another medicine...so I am trying the generic prescription Lansoprazole for only 2 days but the fatigue is so strong...as if I haven't slept in days...off balance and urgent need to close my eyes and sleep...slight headache, also. I've had great luck with Dexilant (no fatigue) but my insurance plan won't cover it until I try these other reflux medicines. I'll stop taking Lansoprazole because the fatigue is debilitating... It did help with my reflux, though... F 42 2 days

 4  acid reflux iron imbalance, sudden sharp pain in the legs lasting 24 hours, heart palpitation, loss of energy, joints pains and sharp hip problem. overall, excellent drug that has allowed me to live a normal life with a few problems.. However, after reading about the long-term consequence of the drug, I have decided to drop it. Luckly, for the past 3 months, I have given up sugar and white flouer and, surprisingly, I have been able to gradually wean from the drug with little side effects. I have done this gradually (first, one pill every other day, then every third day, now, once a week). I am beginning to think that sugar is to blame for my acid reflux ( I have been addicted to sweet food). M 70 14 years

 1  Acid Reflux I have been taking this medicine for approx 15yr and it really helped my acid refux but little did I know that the rest of my body was falling apart. I have just now gone online to find out about the interaction of Prevacid with some vitamins and other medications. I just about had a heart attack while reading all the side effects from other people. I have literally experienced every one of the side effects except vomiting. I have heart palpatations, aches in my joints and muscles. I have severe leg cramps,especially in my thighs. I have back pain, headaches and I use to have a lot of diarrhea. I always thought it was something else and treated it accordingly. I never thought about it being the Prevacid!!! Recently, I was diagnosed with severe vitamin D deficiency and was put on a Vit D treatment. My Endocrinologist told me to get off the Prevacid or cut back. I cut back to everyother day. Now I am wondering if on the days that I feel the worst, are the days I take the Prevacid. I wonder and hope the side effects will reverse. Does anyone know if they will? I will be experimenting with other things to see if I get relief from my acid reflux but NO MORE PPIs for me. Oh I also have occasional bouts of Pancretitious. I wonder if that was brought on by the PPI too. F 64 15 years

 3  GERD Chronic Diarrhea. Migranes. Terrible stomach pains. Ears ringing. Vertigo. Joint pain. I am not going to just bash Prevacid and give it a 1 because like many others i cannot dispute it worked. For the first few weeks i was over the moon at finally finding something that allowed me to be heartburn / indigestion free. Unfortunately the side effects can be so bad its simply not worth it. Load up on probiotics if youre gonna take PPIs - trust me. At some point youre going to get a cdif infection as bacteria has a fieldday in your stomach because of the lack of acid. The fact that the Drs dont mention this is a travesty. Just simply not worth it. M 36 2 months

Did a scope and was diagnosed with duodenal ulcer and chronic gastritis due to hyper-acidity in the stomach. Prescribed with Prevacid to control stomach acidity. It helped with the initial symptoms but it has severe side effects as mentioned earlier. Tried to wean it off but the initial symptoms came back. Since the side effects is too serious to be ignored am trying to wean it off again. If anyone can help especially with regard to the side effects, please do not hesitate to email me. M 30 28 days

 5  GERD Started out taking Prilosec but began getting chest pains and cramps in left arm. Switched to Prevacid and had no problems. Occasionally get bloated feeling in stomach. Cramping pain (like a Charlie Horse) if I bend over for too long (like to tie a shoe). After reading the concerns over long term use, I weaned myself down to 15 mg. (occasionally supplement with Gaviscon if needed) after years on 30 mg. dose. I can't seem to get off the stuff and my doctor keeps telling me that I shouldn't. She says my concerns over bone problems aren't as important as the real possibility of esophageal or throat cancer that I could develop if I quit the PPI's. F 65 13 years

GERD has caused me severe pain and vomiting every time I experience it (at least once a week). Prevacid has relieved all of my symptoms and I can now live a normal life.

 4  barretts esophagus For 14 years prevacid has been a miracle drug for me and prevented me from unbelievable pain and possibly cancer. Now 15+ years later- I can't absorb vit b-12 due to the PPi and I get shots monthly. I am now suffering from extreme exhaustion. I just had another blood test and I am waiting for the results. Please take Calcium - long term risk is increased fractures of the bones. I don't have a choice I have to be on this drug. We're looking for the reason for the exhaustion- before I found out about non absorption of Vit-B-12- I thought I had early onset Alzheimer it was that bad.I'm only 48 and I'm feeling the side effects- Prevacid has probably saved my life but trying to find out about the long-term side effects isn't easy.

About a month ago I was on (prescription strength) Prilosec for 2 weeks. It helped with the GERD, but the side effects were terrible. I was off GERD medication for several weeks with minimal problems. Last week my GERD starting acting up and I bought Prevacid (OTC).

 1  stomach bleeding and pain horrible cramping in abdomen, accompanied by moderate cramping in hips, low back and anterior thighs. Diarrhea. Fatigue. I have been training for a marathin and I was unable to complete my run today due to this horrible pain, diarrhea and fatigue. I felt dizzy--like I was on the verge of passing out--when I had the diarrhea and Iwas not dehydrated and it was not a hot day. I thought maybe I had gotten food poisoning or contracted a stomach virus, but it is likely this drug, which I started taking yesterday, as I rarely get sick and have been eating healthy food which I have prepared. Have some really strong pain medication on hand before you try it, in case you end up being one of the people who get severe cramps from this drug. F 28 2 days

 4  crohn's disease Currently fighting pneumonia for the past month. Can not get rid of it; and i am on my third round of antibiotics, steroids, and inhaler not to mention several prescriptions for the cough that I have had for over a month. Unfortunately, the downside for taking the Prevacid for a long while and often at a higer dose, was that it killed off the good bacteria too. It is now hard for me to fight off infections. My doctor believes my current pneumonia (second bout in 18 months) is due to being on Prevacid and a weakened immune system - partially caused by the drug. Prevacid actually has saved my life in many ways. I had a blood clot in my thirties and had to be put on blood thinners which is a wicked twist of fate when you have Crohns Disease and bleed intestinally all the time. I took the Prevacid to ward off any stomach bleeding. I am no stranger to blood transfusion. F 48 8 years

 5  GERD This drug has helped me immensley. I won't say side effects as none, but I can't say this medicine caused them. Started taking 30mg ten years ago and after a few months began having mild chest pain at times only. Dr. recommended stop taking after about 6 years. Then I began taking over the counter Prilosec. Then went back to Prevacid 15 mg after it became available. I still may have occasional chest pain, rapid pulse, slight arythmia, but I don't know if Prevacid causes it. At least I can swallow my food, knifing stomach pain is gone, and no acid coming up. My concern for checking this website for reactions is that I read these ppi may inhibit the effectiveness of blood thinners. I only take 3 pills per week and trying to wean off them. Hopefully medical research will enlighten us as to the long term negative effects. It seems we take one pill to cure the effects of another.... F 59 4 months
