In brief: Maybe...

...but it depends on the protocol being used, & context in which the test was ordered.
By taking Prevacid, (lansoprazole) you reduced the volume of expected stomach contents, since the drug inhibits acid production. This may factor considerably in the rate of gastric emptying of the subsequently provided test meal. Please alert your Nuclear Medicine center on arrival.
