  • Questions about Prelief...

    Is prelief prescription or over the counter? Does it help with frequency or just pain? Thanks, Subarusue

    Prelief is over-the-counter. It helps by reducing the acid in the foods you eat, thus minimizing the burning, frequency/urgency.

    take care,

      Hi Subarusue,

      Like that name, where did you find it?

      Prelief can be found in the section of the store with antacids. It is made by the same company that makes Beeno. It was hard for me to find, but I finally found some in Portland at a Walgreens. From what I have experienced it works pretty well. Its not a prescription, just a calcium product that cuts the acid down in food.

      Hope this helps,

        I can usually find Prelief in Walgreen's or you can click on the Prelief box in the top right corner of the web page and order it on line. I can usually find the smaller 30 tablet, or even sometimes 60 tablet, bottles locally, but the 120 tablet bottles I usually need to order on line.

        It is so great to have this product now. I use it to allow myself to have ocassional treats, like a cup of REAL coffee.

          Does anyone know off hand the price of Prelief? The next time my Dad goes down to the States I think I'm going to give him some money to buy some to try.

            For the tablets, the price varies from about $7 - $10. I had to order the granulate online. It cost ~$21.00 for a pack of 30 & a 50(serving)shaker. Just click on "prelief" at the top of the page, & it will take you to their website.

              I just bought a bottle of 120 tablets on line and it was $11.99 before shipping. I think the prices on line are pretty comparable to what I've seen in my local stores.

                Thanks for the pricing info... I'm hesitant to order it online because when it's shipped across the border we have to get involved in duty and things like that... past experiences have lead me to want to avoid that... but I will get my Dad to pick some up when he's down there so I can try it.

                  Liisa - I live in Canada,and ordered the Prelief a couple weeks ago. It seems to help. I can't drink coffee anymore, but I really need some caffenine, so I take 2 before my morning tea. They sent it to me in a small package. I did not have any trouble with customs or duty. I think it may have cost an extra $5.00 when I got it at the post office ( I can't really remember, but I'm sure I had to give them some money. I would have remembered if it was really expensive). It seems to go across the border just fine. I live in British Columbia, if that helps.
