I was on Nexium for 4 months. I paid $20 a month (30 days) for the copay. Then effective 9/1, our insurance didn't cover it anymore and I'm on Prevacid SoluTabs now for $20 for 30 days. I still have problems with constipation since I went back on Prevacid. At one point I went off of it to see if I still needed it.
I wanted to see if the Pepcid AC would work as well and not cause the hair loss and constipation, but I see the Prevacid is causing hair loss and constipation, just like the Nexium did.
I decided to stay on the Prevacid for another 60 days and then go off and try the Pepcid AC. I don't want to have to be on an PPI forever.
I've never done mail order because I hear things get messed up and I have enough problems without that.
