Go see your doctor: Familiarize yourself w/ http://www.Drugs.Com/interactions-check.Php?Drug_list=679-0, 3233-14537 as well as whatever source you used to find interactions. Quote your pharmacist if possible (s/he did say something to you, right?). Then ask your doc about risks, benefits & alternatives. Is potential benefit worth potential risk? Are there other ppis eg esomeprazole? Or perhaps h2 blocker eg ranitidine.

This means that : there is potential for a reaction - it doesn't mean you will get one. Potential reactions could be mild, moderate or severe - however, that doesn't necessarily mean that you are likely to have the reaction that is described.
