can i take omeprazole and zantac (ranitidine) extra strength pill together since the omeprazole doesn't work much with my gerd?

Yes, but chk it out: You can use both medications if you need them to control your significant gerd/reflux trouble, but i would advise checking it out with your doc to see why you are having such bad reflux. An infection such as helical pylori causing gastritis/ulcers? Hiatal hernia? Nonulcerative dyspepsia? Minimize alcohol, caffiene, and minty/spicy foods n don't eat before bed. Don't smoke. Consult doc. Good luck.

Yes: I would take the Omeprazole in the am (about 1/2 hr before breakfast) and the zantac (ranitidine) at bedtime, .
