A 36-year-old male asked:
I'm switching from Omeprazole to Lansoprazole for GERD. Do I need a washout period or can start taking Lansoprazole immediately (i.e. the next day)?

Take right away: These are chemical modifications of the same basic molecule with the same effect. You can effortlessly transition from one to the other without a washout needed.
