In brief: Equivalent

There are no trials comparing head to head between all ppis but equally they have a direct effect on reducing acid.
So a Prevacid (lansoprazole) vs Prilosec should have the same effect. Hope this helps.

Varies from person to person: what works best for one may be less effective for another. Another variable is side effects, which may lead people to request a different PPI.
