Is it ok to take fish oil, multivitamin, aciphex, (rabeprazole) and glucosamine condroiton at the same time?

Maybe take Acifex: separately. Most vitamins, supplements are dependent on the GI tract and acidity being normal. If you take anything that changes the acidity level, or reduce it, you might also reduce the absorption or effectiveness of your supplements. So rather than take it all together, take the Acifex by itself not at the same time to optimize your vitamin absorption.
