      After taking a 30mg dose of prescription Prevacid daily for 5 years, I could not have been more delighted when the 24HR formula was approved for over-the-counter sale. Until I found Prevacid, I tried a few alternatives, such as Zantac and Prilosec, I suffered from severe gastroesophogeal reflux disease. My GP and I discussed the possibility that I, a then 23-year-old woman, might require a daily proton pump inhibitor

      pill indefinitely. This was disheartening, but I learned to live with it.

      With PPO prescription coverage, I paid $40 a month for my Prevacid. The biggest hassle wasn’t that I had to take the pill but that I had to make repeated calls and/or visits to my GP to get my refill approved then wait for the refill. That whole process has been eliminated thanks to Prevacid 24HR OTC. It ...


      • has cut out the middle man (the GP and the pharmacist), and I’m able to stop at the drugstore at my own convenience and run my box(es) of Prevacid through the checkout like a non-sick person! Due to some lifestyle changes, I found that I have been able to cut my daily dose from 30mg to 15mg, which is something to feel good about, so the difference between the
        cost of Prevacid OTC vs. my prescription coverage comes out to nothing!

        Different PPIs work differently for different people; I have to say that Prevacid has worked for me and that my search for an effective acid reducer that brings full relief from GERD is over.

        I recommend this product to anyone who has already been diagnosed with a stomach acid condition and wants to cut out the doctor and pharmacist brokerage. It’s awesome!

    what is the difference between prevacid prescription and prevacid otc. My wife gets pain in the eye and watery eye when she takes prevacid otc. Itt does not happen when she takes prevacid prescription.

    Hi,

    Usually there aren’t any active ingredient differences. What could actually make the difference is how each caplet it coated. I have had a similar experience with prevacid on vice versa. My doctor said that I actually had a small allergy to the coating on the prescription strength prevacid tablets. Perhaps this is case with your wife as well. Hope this helps.

    Prevacid- the solutabs have lactose in them, the OTC capsules do not. You can most certainly give the capsules w/out food (but you do need to give it w/something acidic like apple juice, applesauce or pedialyte).

    Your story sounds good, but look at what happened to me. After trying different allergy medications I finally found on the really worked great for me Allegra 180 MG. I have a 12 dollar co-pay to visit the doctor, who can write a 90 day supply with three refills. Through my military mail-in pharmacy I can get a 90 day supply for only 3. Now comes Allegra to the OTC at 18-24 dollars for a one month supply. Clariton is available OTC or by prescription. Glucose testing strips can only be purchased by prescription. The only thing that I see between the Insurance companies, the Drug Makers and the FDA is a how to make the most money from the consumers that need these medications. what are your thoughts
