How quickly does Prevacid work?

My son was diagnosed with reflux about 2 months ago. He was initially put on Zantac. After increasing the dose twice, I didn't think it was really helping. Yesterday, the doctor put him on Prevacid. How quickly does this work? I'm worried about the reflux fussing since there was no overlap in medication.

  • My son had severe gastritis. After starting Prevacid, he had less pain within a month. I think the stomach should heal up by a month on it. It is MUCH better than Zantac. He is still on it, since he has Crohn's disease.
