Is it safe to take 60mg of prevacid in the morning and 20 mg of prilosec in the evening?

Hi and welcome to the GERD forum.

We are not drs here and I am not informed on the topic of meds and dosage.I would leave that to ur dr or pharmacist.

Is this the dosage u were rx'd?

Everyone will react diff to meds and depending on how severe ur symptoms are will depend on the dosage u r rx'd.

Please let us know what u find out...and know we are here to share our experiences and support.

Hi, I'm not a dr -- just a patient, but that sounds extraordinarily high .. selmaS is right, we cannot really say about RX, but from my experience I've never seen a script written that high.  If anything, they usually add Zantac @ night for breakthru acid reflux.

Just my 2 cents.
