  Hello to all
 Has anyone had sideffects from prevacid? I had mild chest pain for a couple of weeks, i went to the doctor she gave me prevacid. One week after taking it i had stomach cramps and D. Then my left eye became sore to the touch and to light, was very bloodshot. This happened for a couple days, so i stopped taking the prevacid. Everything went away. Any similar experiences?????

I haven't taken prevacid but had terrible side effects from taking 40 mgs of Nexium - similar to what you describe except for the bloodshot eye???

Since I have a hiatal hernia and need to take the meds, my doc switched me to 20mgs of Nexium twice a day. It typically works about 80 - 90% on my reflux and I get NO side effects.

Good luck to you.

I never had those side effects, but recently I started to suspect that Prevacid was causing me some dyspepsia. I stopped, and of course GERD symptoms returned but some of the dyspepsia did go away. Bowl movements are also a little better. I never had diarrhea but I did have loose poop.

For a while, at least, I'm just going to treat the GERD with Maalox and stuff and see how it goes.
