WHY CAN"T I GET AN ANSWER?

I have been on Prevacid for 2 full weeks and it does not seem to be working.  I am taking 30 mg twice a day.  Has it just not kicked in yet?  I have read it is highly effective but may take a while.  Help please!

Hi...I am so sorry u r having this issue....try a few more days and them call ur dr.....PPI's do not work for everyone and u may need to try a diff med or type of med...and in addition I hope u r avoiding the foods that can aggravate this for u.
Please see the Health Pages for foods to avoid/food that r safe

Ask ur dr if u still get no relief about a H2 inhibitor and see if they work better.
Good luck
