Is Prevacid better than Prilosec??

I have taken Prilosec for awhile and I realized that many of the odd feelings I was having were side effects...
Has anyone taken Prevacid for GERD/LPR symptoms and gotten any relief??
I also have HUGE anxiety and my stress levels are off the charts right now so I know that is not helping me at all, I am dealing with menopause symptoms and well I guess the list could go on and on...

Nexium gave me terrible diarrhea and my insurance would not pay for Dexilant until I have tried some other medications.

I am really having a rough time with my GERD/LPR now and need some advice.

Also, has anyone ever paid for the "Natural-Cure" on line??? I am about at the end of my rope and am tempted to buy it!!

Thank you for your input!

Re: Is Prevacid better than Prilosec??

I've taken both. I get on better with prevacid as prilosec stop me sleeping. Having said that there isn't a PPI that completely controls my reflux. I also take ranitidine and Gaviscon and I've also had surgery.

Things that have helped me include losing some weight, eating smaller meals, avoiding chocolate, alcohol and caffeine, and raising the head of my bed, oh and reducing stress.

I wouldn't bother with any "cure" remedies personally, save your money.

JanaJ..thank you so much for the reply..
I have tried Prilosec both over the counter and prescription. It makes me dizzy and I just don't feel great. I have taken Nexium (it gives me diarrhea), Zantac, Tums, and Gaviscon. Gaviscon does help me a bit.
I thought I would try the Prevacid.. I guess I am just so tired of being sick I don't know what to do.
I get to a point where I feel like I can't breath and I burp ALL of the time.

Thank you again for the reply...
My Best to you!
