for how can I stay on Prevacid (30 mg/day)?

I take a number of drugs, supplements and chemo. I was advised to "start the day" with an antacid medication, i.e. 1/2 hr before breakfast, on empty stomach. Nexium did not work as well, but Prevacid seems to do its job. I've been taking it now for 3-4 months and am concerned in which way it may change the chemistry of the GI tract.
