In brief: Salt

You are salt deficient.
Sea salt is what is best for you not table salt. You are too young to be on Prevacid (lansoprazole). Prevacid (lansoprazole) is for temporary use only. I hope that you are not taking it for more than 30 days. You may use up to a tsp of Sea salt a day. Taste the upper part of your arm when you sweat. If it is not salty than you are salt deficient.
