I'm doing a barium swallow CT scan. Can I take my Prevacid (lansoprazole) or is a PPI a contradiction?

In brief: Ask your doc.

Clarify this with your doctor. With many tests, instructions about taking current meds on the day of testing should be addressed.
Check any pre-test instructions you may have received. Or ask the radiology department for the answer (they can contact your doc, too, if there is a question about taking them or not).

In brief: Probably not

If the ordering physician has not provided instructions for avoiding PPI before the procedure, you can take your medicine.
