Doctor, thanks for your timely replies. I am currently on 30 mg Prevacid (my doctor gave me office handout) once per day, and due to reading your column, I started the Zantac (150 mg - OTC). Is Prevacid the drug of choice today? I notice a lot of postings on the forum refer to it. If this is the most effective drug, what is the generally prescribed dosage? You suggest taking a PPI twice a day. Would you recommend two 15mg Prevacid or two 30 mg Prevacid? Also, what is the recommended dosage for the Zantac? I am still having some breakthrough with my current regimen (i.e., one 30 mg Prevacid in the a.m., and one 150 mg Zantac in the p.m.
Thanks so much and I look forward to your answer.
