So i was on Nexium but everyday i took it i was getting bad headaches. I am not postive it was from it but it is a side effect so im not sure.

So now my doctor((who isnt very smart)) put my on prevacid and in the warnings it says that it could cause serious stomach problems and if it happens call the doctor asap. Well with me having a bunch of stomach issues,, and my spleen is very enlarged and very painful,, im worried about taking this medicine now.

What do you guys suggest???

Re: prevacid???

All of the PPI's are very very similar medications.

I do not believe there is any evidence that prevacid can affect the spleen, but if you have concerns ask your doctor.
