New OTC Prevacid
Posted 10 December 2009 - 06:09 PM
I'm trying to be more active in the forums. Recently Prevacid became an over the counter drug and so my insurance will no longer cover the prescription. I've been taken the over the counter but it doesn't seem to do the trick like it used to. Has anyone else experienced? I know that they are only 15mgs so I've been taken 2 a day since I have been on the 30 for over a year. Could this be causing my heartburn coming back?

I'm sorry you're having problems with heartburn. Since this isn't working for you anyway, have you checked with your doctor to see if there are any other heartburn medications that are covered by your insurance that you could try?
