Prevacid and its Uses

Generic Prevacid belongs to the family of medications called proton pump inhibitors (PPIs).

Generic Prevacid is effective for many people in fighting heartburn associated with acid reflux disease and healing damage to your esophagus.

One Generic Prevacid a day can:

  • Help prevent the acid that causes heartburn pain
  • Provide heartburn relief for up to 24 hours
  • Heal damage to your esophagus
  • Stop the damage from coming back if maintenance therapy is prescribed

Generic Prevacid is used to treat stomach (duodenal or gastric) ulcers and gastroesophogeal reflux disease (GERD). Generic Prevacid is also used in combination with antibiotics for the treatment and eradication of H. pylori bacteria (the cause of a majority of duodenal ulcers).

Generic Prevacid is also sometimes prescribed in combination with NSAIDs to help prevent ulcers from developing. Other conditions related to excess production of stomach acid, such as the Zollinger-Ellison syndrome, can also be treated by Generic Prevacid.

Prevacid Mechanism Prevacid Working

Generic Prevacid works by reducing the production of stomach acid.

Stomach acid is produced as a normal part of the digestive process. When we digest food, the cells lining the inside of the stomach use a mechanism called a proton pump to produce stomach acid. Prevacid works by stopping the proton pumps from working. This reduces the production of stomach acid.

Generic Prevacid is therefore used to relieve the symptoms of indigestion and heartburn that are caused by excess production of stomach acid.

Generic Prevacid is also used to treat various medical complaints that result from the effect of stomach acid on the lining of the stomach and duodenum (an area of the intestine directly after the stomach). The linings of the stomach and duodenum usually resist attack from stomach acid. However, if these linings are damaged, or large amounts of stomach acid are produced, the acid can irritate them, causing an ulcer to develop on the wall of the stomach or duodenum. This is known as a peptic ulcer, and continuing production of acid in the stomach will continue to irritate it and prevent it from healing.

As Generic Prevacid reduces the amount of acid in the stomach and duodenum it is used to help ulcers to heal. Treatment with Prevacid can also be continued after the ulcer has healed to help prevent it from recurring.

Generic Prevacid is also used in combination with antibiotics to help eradicate a type of bacteria called Helicobacter pylori from the stomach. This type of bacteria is associated with the development of most duodenal ulcers. Prevacid allows the ulcers to heal and also creates an environment in the gut in which the antibiotics can work most effectively to eradicate the bacteria.

In addition, Generic Prevacid is used to treat peptic ulcers that can sometimes occur as a side effect of non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs), such as diclofenac. NSAIDs relieve pain and inflammation by reducing the production of substances called prostaglandins. Unfortunately, prostaglandins are also produced in the stomach and help to protect the stomach lining from acid, so NSAIDs can allow the acid to irritate the stomach. Generic Prevacid is used to treat peptic ulcers that occur due to this irritation. Prevacid also relieves side effects such as indigestion that can be associated with taking these medicines.
