Prevacid blocks the production of stomach acid. It is prescribed for the short-term treatment (up to 4 weeks) of duodenal ulcers (ulcers near the exit from the stomach). It is also used for up to 8 weeks in the treatment of stomach ulcers gastroesophageal reflux disease (backflow of acid into the canal to the stomach) and a condition called erosive esophagitis (severe inflammation of the canal). Once a duodenal ulcer or case of esophagitis has cleared up the doctor may continue prescribing Prevacid to prevent a relapse. Prevacid is also prescribed to reduce the risk of stomach ulcers in people who develop this problem while taking nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs such as Advil Motrin and Naprosyn. The drug is also used for long-term treatment of certain diseases marked by excessive acid production such as Zollinger-Ellison syndrome.

Prevacid is also prescribed as part of a combination treatment to eliminate the H. pylori infection that causes most cases of duodenal ulcer.
