Why are you taking extra 5mg of Prevacid?

I'm curious, how are you taking an extra 5 mg? They are 15mg capsules. When a manufacturer sets the dosage, they determine the least amount needed to work and the max amount that is effective. Often taking more then the recommended dose has no more effect then the recommendation. I would worry that the side effects would be more pronounced if you take more then the recommendation, with little benefit to you.
