 3  Gastritis/Erosive esophagitis Occasional headache, nausea, dizziness, night sweats and fatigue. Lansoprazole (Prevacid) has helped tremendously with my gastritis and GERD symptoms. As for the occasional side effects, they are tolerable. But the nausea can become quite severe at times. And as for the Vitamin deficiency, I take multi vitamins every day and so far my blood work has checked out good! M 29 3 months

 5  Gastritis/Erosive esophagitis Slight fatigue, flatulence I just recently switched to Prevacid from Pepcid because of all of the side effects and the difference is like night and day! I feel 100x better now that I am off the Pepcid and onto the Prevacid! No more gastric pain, and no more pain in my esophagus. I highly recommend the PPI! M 28 18 days

 2  Acid Reflux after RNY At first it relieved burning sensation in throat; now I do not know if its effective. I have severe anxiety, panic attacks, depression, mood swings, weight gain- defeated purpose of gastric bypass. I get relief from a sip of Gaviscon! I was placed on Xanax. I feel as though this medication is the cause of my emotional state. I have been on it since 1/2018-present. I just need some peace. I read long term use is not good. I do not take any other medications, just vitamins. F 49 2 years

 1  GERD Tremors, Panic Attacks, Heart-attack type feeling, heart palpitations, severe sweating, nausea, dizziness, brain fog, and confusion. This drug is hell on Earth. There's no way this should be legal. I was prescribed this in the ER after having severe heart pains. I am already diagnosed with PTSD and Major Depression, and the doctors did not tell me about any of this horrific side effects. First day was fine. Second day, I was trembling like a BOMB, nauseas and could barely take WATER. Threw up stomach acid since I couldn't stomach anything. I eventually had to go BACK to the ER, where they told me yes it's the side effects of the drug. DON'T. TAKE. THIS. I ended up being prescribed XANAX because of this, and I've never ever needed it. It's my first day off or and my body is so weak. Email me if you want to discuss! F 19 3 days

PREVACID  (LANSOPRAZOLE):  Lansoprazole is used to treat certain stomach and esophagus problems (such as acid reflux, ulcers). It works by decreasing the amount of acid your stomach makes. It relieves symptoms such as heartburn, difficulty swallowing, and persistent cough. This medication helps heal acid damage to the stomach and esophagus, helps prevent ulcers, and may help prevent cancer of the esophagus. Lansoprazole belongs to a class of drugs known as proton pump inhibitors (PPIs).   (Sources: U.S. Centers for Medicare Services, FDA)
