PPI: This would not be dangerous. Both medications are proton pump inhibitors and have similar effcacy. However the dosing for both medications is 20 to 40 mg one daily.

Try something else: Get investigated for whatever symptom you're having to make sure you actually have reflux. If you do or already had investigation, may simply need a different med in that class.

Not quite: Over-the-counter medications work the same as Nexium (esomeprazole) for the most part if they are Prilosec or prevacid. The only difference is the dose is about one quarter of that a prescription medication so you will not get as much acid production.
