Morning! I took my meds, I hope You have taken yours. emoticon

I goofed when I call Pevacid, Omeprazole. Sorry. emoticon emoticon

Prevacid generic is called Lansoprazole Oral. Prilosec generic is called Omeprazole Oral.

Both are used to treat Acid Reflux, as are other Proton Pump inhibitors.

Good morning, Jwilis40 and thank you for welcoming me aboard. Good to know that your doctor suggested Prevacid and I didn't know it was called Omeprazole. Acid Reflux hurts and destroys tissue and I'm surprised my insurance wouldn't carry the meds for this disease. I know a man who recently died from esophagus cancer and he never smoked in his life nor was around 2nd hand smoke. The doctor said it was from his acid reflux disease. That really made me get to a doctor and get a prescription since I was just taking Tums all the time.

By the way, I get woke up early too by my puppy dogs :) but what I would give for a great night's sleep.

Good Morning! Welcome Aboard Gapeach! The Gastroenterologist originally put me on Aciphex and my insurance removed it from their formulary except in special cases and I didn't qualify so the Doc put me on Prevacid (also known as Omeprazole).

Yes, I have taken it this morning. Some puppy dog woke me up at 6:30 needing out, bless his old dog heart. A chihuahua that is about 12-13 yrs young. emoticon

I have added the goal to drink 10 cups of water a day. I couldn't afford the meds the doctor prescribe so my pharmacist suggest Prevacid 24-hour and it has helped me. I ran out last week and for a couple of nights, I had awful indigestion that kept me up and reaching for tums ever so often. I'm new to Sparkpeople and I was surprised to see we could all chat together about our health issues.

I have been taking my medication for GERD and it has been helping. emoticon I was grateful for having done so while traveling to OKC with my sister yesterday and home. I took it when I got out of bed at 4 am yesterday and we left at 5. I don't usually get up before 7 and get car sick when riding.

Ooops. I think the Docotor told me to take it 30 minutes before I ate. Too Late. I've done ate, a Blueberry bagel and Cream Cheese wedge.

They say to take as soon as I remember so, ..., down the hatch they go!

I ask this question as I am now on Proton Pump Inhibitor Medication twice daily. I didn't care for taking this med. once a day and would skip it if I had no symptoms of GERD. Not a Wise decision. My dose has been doubled and doubled, (once daily to twice daily, one 20 mg to 2-20mg or 40mg each time.).

This is to make me responsible to more that just myself. If You wish to join me, feel free to respond.

I took 2 of them this morning. emoticon
