Both are safe: Anti-reflux measures such as raising the head of the bed, avoiding tight clothing or belts, avoiding eating late at night and not lying down shortly after mealtime and achieving weight loss are great treatments. Avoid aspirin, anti-inflammatories, caffeine, peppermints, alcohol and tobacco.
Both Zantac (ranitidine) and Omeprazole are safe to use daily.
