What is the question: Yes, you could take Gaviscon or any anti-gas formula (containing simethicone) along with your prevacid (lansoprazole). The Prevacid (lansoprazole) works on the acid (proton pump inhibitor) and the bloating and burping is more gas (but caused by hyper acidity) and can be eased with simethicone containing anti-gas (or antacid) formula such as gaviscon.
