Hi Sillylilly and friendlygal,
I hope you don't mind me jumping into the conversation... I have been having really bad problems lately too. I am also on Prevacid, and have been for years. I used to be on 15's twice a day, and about 4 years ago, I was put on 30's twice a day. Last year my primary doc added Reglan along with both doses for a short time, and that helped me a lot with the pain I was having, and the "lump-in-the-throat" feeling subsided for a while. Now it's back worse than ever. I was able to go down to 1 30 a day without any Reglan for about a year, but for the past month, I've been so bad... can't sleep through the night, in constant pain, haven't been able to make it through work a whole day in a long time.I've been seeing my primary doc for the recent events, because the specialists are so expensive, and last year had to have the works, colonoscopy, endoscopy, etc, and don't want to go through that again anytime soon. I was wondering... you were talking about splitting your doses. My prevacid is capsules... can you do that? I have never tried taking it all at once, but I wonder if it would make any difference. I'm waiting on results from gallbladder testing now... so I don't really know what's going on with me.
Well, just wanted to say hi, and let you know that I'm in the same boat.
