What is a generic medication?
Generic medications are significantly discounted copies of brand name medication that have the same active ingredients, intended use, dosage, side effects, effects, and route of administration as the original brand name medication. In other words, generic medications have the same pharmacological effects as their brand-name counterparts. Over half of all prescribed medications are for generic medications.

PrevPac is used to treat stomach/intestinal ulcers caused by the bacteria H. pylori and to prevent the ulcers from returning. Treating an ulcer reduces the risk of serious damage to the lining of the stomach/intestines (such as bleeding, tearing, blockage). Lansoprazole is known as a proton pump inhibitor (PPI). It works by blocking acid production in the stomach. Decreasing excess stomach acid can help the ulcer heal. Amoxicillin and clarithromycin are antibiotics used to treat a wide variety of bacterial infections (including H. pylori). Treating the infection helps reduce the risk of the ulcer returning. Amoxicillin is a penicillin-type antibiotic and clarithromycin is a macrolide-type antibiotic. They work by stopping the growth of bacteria. The antibiotics in PrevPac treat only bacterial infections. Antibiotics do not work for viral infections (such as common cold, flu). Using any antibiotic when it is not needed can cause it to not work for future infections. Lansoprazole is not recommended for use in children younger than 1 year due to an increased risk of serious side effects. Ask the doctor or pharmacist for details.
How to Use PrevPac
Take PrevPac by mouth exactly as directed by your doctor, usually 1 dose (4 pills) twice daily before a meal. Swallow the lansoprazole capsules whole. Do not crush or chew. Each packet contains both the morning and evening doses of PrevPac (a 1-day supply). Consult your doctor or pharmacist for instructions on the proper use of PrevPac. The dosage and length of treatment is based on your medical condition and response to treatment. For the best effect, take PrevPac at evenly spaced times. To help you remember, take PrevPac at the same times every day. Continue to take PrevPac until the full prescribed amount is finished, even if symptoms disappear after a few days. Stopping antibiotics too early may allow bacteria to continue to grow, which may result in a return of the infection. Tell your doctor if your condition lasts or gets worse.
Before taking PrevPac, tell your doctor or pharmacist if you are allergic to lansoprazole, amoxicillin, or clarithromycin; or to penicillins (such as ampicillin), cephalosporins (such as cephalexin), or macrolide antibiotics (such as erythromycin); or to dexlansoprazole; or if you have any other allergies. PrevPac may contain inactive ingredients, which can cause allergic reactions or other problems. Talk to your pharmacist for more details. Before using PrevPac, tell your doctor or pharmacist your medical history,liver disease (including liver problems with past clarithromycin use), kidney disease, heart disease (coronary artery disease, heart attack), a certain type of muscle disease (myasthenia gravis), a certain type of viral infection (infectious mononucleosis), lupus. Some symptoms may actually be signs of a more serious condition.heartburn with lightheadedness/sweating/dizziness, chest/jaw/arm/shoulder pain (especially with shortness of breath, unusual sweating), unexplained weight loss. Clarithromycin may cause a condition that affects the heart rhythm (QT prolongation). QT prolongation can rarely cause serious (rarely fatal) fast/irregular heartbeat and other symptoms (such as severe dizziness, fainting) that need medical attention right away. The risk of QT prolongation may be increased if you have certain medical conditions or are taking other drugs that may cause QT prolongation. Before using PrevPac,certain heart problems (heart failure, slow heartbeat, QT prolongation in the EKG), family history of certain heart problems (QT prolongation in the EKG, sudden cardiac death). Low levels of potassium or magnesium in the blood may also increase your risk of QT prolongation. This risk may increase if you use certain drugs (such as diuretics/"water pills") or if you have conditions such as severe sweating, diarrhea, or vomiting. Talk to your doctor about using PrevPac safely. PrevPac may cause live bacterial vaccines (such as typhoid vaccine) to not work well. Tell your health care professional that you are using PrevPac before having any immunizations/vaccinations. Before having surgery, tell your doctor or dentist about all the products you use (including prescription drugs, nonprescription drugs, and herbal products). Older adults may be more sensitive to the side effects of PrevPac, especially QT prolongation (see above), and C. difficile infection (see Side Effects section). During pregnancy, PrevPac should be used only when clearly needed. Discuss the risks and benefits with your doctor. Amoxicillin and clarithromycin pass into breast milk.

Drug interactions may change how your medications work or increase your risk for serious side effects. This document does not contain all possible drug interactions. Keep a list of all the products you use (including prescription/nonprescription drugs and herbal products) and share it with your doctor and pharmacist.

Many drugs besides clarithromycin may affect the heart rhythm (QT prolongation), including amiodarone, disopyramide, dofetilide, pacritinib, pimozide, procainamide, quinidine, sotalol, among others. Other medications can affect the removal of clarithromycin from your body, which may affect how clarithromycin works. Examples include rifamycins (such as rifabutin), efavirenz, nevirapine, saquinavir, among others. Clarithromycin can slow down the removal of other medications from your body, which may affect how they work. Examples of affected drugs include colchicine, digoxin, some drugs used to treat erectile dysfunction-ED/pulmonary hypertension (such as sildenafil, tadalafil), ergot alkaloids (such as ergotamine, dihydroergotamine), flibanserin, some statin drugs (such as lovastatin, simvastatin), tamsulosin, tolvaptan, ticagrelor, among others. Some products need stomach acid so that the body can absorb them properly. Lansoprazole decreases stomach acid, so it may change how well these other products work. Some affected products include atazanavir, erlotinib, levoketoconazole, nelfinavir, pazopanib, rilpivirine, certain azole antifungals (itraconazole, ketoconazole, posaconazole), among others. Before using lansoprazole, consult your doctor or pharmacist about the other medications you take and for advice on how to reduce or avoid these types of interactions. Lansoprazole is very similar to dexlansoprazole. Do not use medications containing dexlansoprazole while using lansoprazole. PrevPac may interfere with certain laboratory tests (including urine glucose test), possibly causing false test results. Make sure laboratory personnel and all your doctors know you use PrevPac.
