Gg 637 White Capsule

Lisa Says:

A white capsule with GG 637 imprint has been prescribed to me replacing a pink and aqua capsule that had a Prevacid 15 imprint. Can't find anything on GG 637. Any help please?

I can't find a listing for one with this marking, however, the GG logo is used by Matrix Laboratories, which is a subsidiary of Teva Pharmaceuticals and they did receive very recent approval for 15 and 30mg capsules of Lansoprazole, which is the generic for Prevacid.

Thus, there is a good chance that is what these are, but you should double check with the pharmacy you received them from, just to be sure.


Are there any questions or comments?

Thank you so much. I wonder why my pharmacy is saying it's from Sandoz?

Lisa, Sandoz may be a licensed distributor of those capsules. This information is very dynamic in the prescription drug world and can be hard to keep track of.

Another possibility is that they were made by Sandoz at one time and your pharmacy just hasn't updated the information in their computer system, yet.

There are several possibilities that could explain, so I've just made a couple of guesses about it.


Did you double check with the pharmacy, yet?

Verwon, I'm just concerned because in America FDA approved drugs injure about 2.2 million and kill 100,000 people a year. I don't want to end up one of those! So I check my medications ID out each time they change to be sure. The pharmacy says they are "The same medication you have been getting". Yet the appearance is different. Also the Rx ID # was 00781-2353-31 on the original pill, this new pill's # is 00781-2147-31. Thanks for all your help. Just don't want to be another statistic lol.

Its generic prevacid 15mg. GG 637 has been identified as Lansoprazole delayed release 15 mg.

Lansoprazole is used in the treatment of stomach ulcer; gerd; barrett's esophagus; erosive esophagitis; helicobacter pylori infection (and more), and belongs to the drug class proton pump inhibitors. There is no proven risk in humans during pregnancy.
