Re: How long do you have to wait before you take Prevacid?
Most doctors will tell you the ideal way to take your PPIs is to simply wait an hour before eating after taking them.
In practice, I've found that I can eat immediately after taking them, and for me that has no negative ramifications. However, I tend to ususally wait at least 15 minutes before eating.
I also take the 2 pills together first thing in the morning. Apparently I need a large dosing, because my symptoms come back when I separate the dosages into morning and evening.
Whenever I mention this to my ENT (whose practice is 90% LPR patients), her reply is that half of her patients do it my way and the other half split them up. It's just a matter of finding what works best for you.
