Okay, so you know all about heartburn, but just what exactly is
frequent heartburn? It’s been defined as having heartburn two or more days a week.1 and that’s exactly what Prevacid®24HR is meant to treat.
If left untreated, frequent heartburn can lead to further complications that Prevacid®24HR does not treat.
You should discuss with your doctor if you think any of these conditions apply to you.
Thankfully, treating your frequent heartburn may help you avoid these other, more serious conditions.
The good news is that with the right lifestyle adjustments and an over-the-counter heartburn medication like Prevacid®24HR, along with regular check-ups with a doctor, frequent heartburn can be fairly easy to manage.
Sometimes the effects of frequent heartburn - like getting less sleep - may start a cycle that triggers heartburn again the next day or later in the week.4
