I need help on deploying my development database to production without losing any data

I mistakenly ran the command npx prisma migrate dev on my production env but did not accept when the message says that it would result in resting the database Basically what I have been doing until now is developing all our backend and database migrations on a development branch and merging them in production branch and applying the migration to production env with npx prisma db push but know when I ran npx prisma migrate dev it would reset the database, and I am afraid of running npx prisma db push and not even give me the change of canceling if it resets my database this is the message

you are responsible for your own data, railway will not be held accountable for data loss caused by the user

your databases should not be stored in the main service. This is what’s causing the loss of data create a new db service and store your data there

I didnt loose any data this is what I am trying to understand, I understood that there must be incosistent database schema from my development and main branch but when I merge I dont expect to loose data how should I do it in a way to avoid these loss? what do you mean my database should not stored in the main service? also is there a way to know which data I will loose before running prisma migrate deploy because what I am doing as metioned before is having 2 env PRODUCTION and DEVELOPMENT as normal, DEVELOPMENT is always ahead of PRODUCTION when I finish a feature I merge DEVELOPMENT to PRODUCTION and push the changes,

now whats happening is before pushing the changes I want to update my PRODUCTION database schema with the updates that came from DEVELOPMENT on merge on DEVELOPMENT there are some tables I am droping and some required and unique fields that are not unique anymore, by running prisma migrate deploy or prisma db push can I know before running this the result of my database its ok to loose data that I intend but not resetting the database
