Prevacid is used to treat and prevent ulcers in the stomach and intestines. It works by reducing stomach acid production. This allows the ulcers to heal. In some cases, it is used in tandem with amoxicillin or with a combination of amoxicillin and clarithromycin. This combination works to destroy the ulcer-causing bacteria H. pylori. A short-term dosage of 15 milligrams of Prevacid is sometimes prescribed to prevent ulcers, or to prevent a reoccurrence of ulcers.
