No advantage: Esomeprazole works best if taken before a meal (preferably breakfast) and ranitidine around a meal or at bedtime. No advantage in taking both at the same time.

Yes: Yes they can, but usually we recommend patients to take them separately, ie one in the morning and one in the evening for best results.
