I was on 30 mg prevacid for bad reflux and hiatal hernia for over 10 years (I'm now 70) After I read about possible kidney and liver damage from this drug I tapered off it over a two month period, going from 30 mg to 20 to 15 to 7 1/2 and the last two days I have not taken any. Instead taken 20 mg pepcid. But for the past week, I have had intestinal bloating and bad bad back pain. Every time I have this bloating I have back pain. For two days I had loose bowels, oddly shaped stool. Now I just have bloating, back pain and queasiness. Is this from withdrawal or do I have something else? I had a partial colectomy 10 years ago for diverticulitis, but I don't have abdominal pain or fever, so I don't think this is another bout of diverticulitis.
