have acid reflux and take prevacid 30 mg 1 x a day. Lately my tongue
has been burning continously and need to know what to take. Can I
take another prevacid daily for a week? I believe it is esophagitis.
Answer: Dear Lynn,
Burning on the tongue could be
a side effect of taking Prevacid although it is not common. When taking
any type of medication, it is not recommended to stop taking it without
a doctor's approval or before the entire prescribed dose is depleted.
Your doctor will be able to determine
if the burning feeling is a side effect of Prevacid and if so maybe
prescribe another medication for acid reflux.
