Bruce Says:

What does the "LEG" mean on the prescription bottle immediately following the dosage (20 MG TAB LEG)? This was for acid reflux medication, nothing to do with legs.

I found the answer.

LEG means Lower Esophageal-Gastrointestinal (symptoms, treatment).
The medication was for severe heartburn and acid reflux.

Thanks for the helpful feedback Bruce! Just out of curiosity, which medication are you taking exactly? At first glance I was under the unique impression that LEG might've been an abbreviation for the active ingredient (since I don't normally see the indications mentioned on a prescription bottle - typically just the drug name in my experience), but what you have found certainly makes sense - especially if the medication was prescribed for a related condition.

I hope all is well and wish you good health!
