Studies didn't show: Any interactions between the two drugs. Also ask info from a pharmacist. God bless you!

No problem: I see no interaction problem with you taking both of those rx. Usually, for laryngopharyngeal reflux (throat problems from acid) the Prilosec is taken 30-60 min prior to morning meal.
