The medication which you have mentioned is Lansoprazole. The medication is not available in the brand name of Prevacid, but it is available in other brand names like Lancid, Lanpro, Lansol, Lanzol etc. The main treatment for the acid reflux for the baby is to properly burp the child after every feed which will help the air to come out of mouth which it has swallowed while taking feed.
