I have acid reflux. I went to the doctors about 5 months ago. I had been putting off going to the doctors. I thought it would go away. Well of cource it did not go away. The doctor put me on Prevacid 30mg at first, then after a month went by when I went back to the doctors since it has been helping me she put the mg's down to 15mg. I have to take it once a day. Some times it bothers me more then other days. I think that is when i drink a lot of tea. Is it true that if you are over weight that would bother it? I am a little over weight. I do want to lose the weight any way. Well I hope by taking the pill everyday eating right that i will not have the feelings that i have been having.
