In brief: Prevacid vs Nexium

In general, the answer is "yes.
" Both are Proton Pump Inhibitors (PPIs). Used sparingly, rather than long term, these PPIs are both effective for temporary relief of heartburn symptoms. It would be best to let your doctor know you are switching, if you decide to do so, so your medical record can be updated.
