Oral PREVACID doses up to 5000 mg/kg in rats [approximately 1300 times the 30 mg human dose based on body surface area (BSA)] and in mice (about 675.7 times the 30 mg human dose based on BSA) did not produce deaths or any clinical signs.
PREVACID is contraindicated in patients with known severe hypersensitivity to any component of the formulation of PREVACID. Hypersensitivity reactions may include anaphylaxis, anaphylactic shock, angioedema, bronchospasm, acute interstitial nephritis, and urticaria [see ADVERSE REACTIONS].
For information about contraindications of antibacterial agents (clarithromycin and amoxicillin) indicated in combination with PREVACID, refer to the CONTRAINDICATIONS section of their package inserts.This monograph has been modified to include the generic and brand name in many instances.
