So my son was on Prevacid last yr. It did really well. They did up him up to 30mg (solutab) last yr. Well we got new insurance (husband started a new job) and so they decided they wouldn't cover the Prevacid at all and wanted us to use the prilosec. So we did, and he is on 20mg a day. Well we are still having issues so they gave him zantac at night (4ml). Still having issues.
Do you think it would be better if he was back on the prevacid? What has your experience been?
The doctor can fight insurance on it, but that can be a pain which is why they decided to try him on the prilosec.
I had the same problem with new insurance over the years wanting me to try something CHEAPER. After filing Complaints with Dept of Insurarance and Better Business Bureau stating I am not a GUINEA PIG and I want the medication that works. They acquiesced and gave me what works. Prilosec and the others never worked for me they are all worthless. Demand that they put him back on what works otherwise he could have serious problems down the road.
