It depends on the type of queries you are doing.

changing it to something like  lower(column) like lower('text%'), and
creating an index on lower(column) will give you much better performance.

If you have % in the middle of the query, it will still be slow, but I assume 
that is not
the general case.

I am not sure what the effect of it being prepared will be, however I've had 
much success
with the method above without the queries being prepared.  Others may be able 
to offer advice
about if prepare will effect it.
