Discussions that mention prevacid

High & Low Blood Pressure board


Okay. I went to the doctor today and he said it was probably some gastrointestinal thing. So Prevacid for a week to rule that out before we take another ekg. he said my heart sounded fine. But the Longhorns won yesterday so my heart is happy. My bp was 117/72 at the doctor's office!! This is amazing, since usually I have white coat. Has anyone out there taken prevacid before? anything i should know?
Hey Frank...nice reading. I took a reading at 9:30PM last night and got one of my lowest ones of the evening. 125/80. I almost had a heart attack...kidding...*LOL*. I think the GERD board may have some info on Prevacid usage and how it affects some of the users.

Hi Frank,
I have taken Prevacid for a couple of years. It's a very kind drug (no side effects At least for me) and it does it's job extremely well.

I,m a proud Texan these days too!

My mother took prevacid for two or three yrs and it caused her stomach to hurt. My dad takes prevacid and he doesn't have any problems. My mom is too sensitive to most drug. My dad is normal.

So if you're a normal guy, you should be fine, but if like my mom you're sensitive to drugs, you'll have problems. Good luck!
Okay, the prevacid came and went for a week and nada. I am still feeling those little pinpricks on my heart. Thanks for the info on prevacid. Hey, have y'all ever heard that it might be too little acid causing the pains in our stomach. Yesterday, I ate a lemon to see if that worked and it kind of settled my stomach but my little heart pains are still there. So it is probably not gastrointestinal. Oh well, time for another ekg test and god knows what else--I especially hate that one where they stick you with glow goo and then put you in a big tube and you can't move for five months. Wish me luck. Oh, and by the way, my older friends that read this board got mad at me for saying old people complain all the time. Okay, okay, I take it all back. Old people rule.
