Can I take omeprazole 20mg with microgynon 30? Just as I'm wishing to prevent pregnancy

OK: Yes. In addition also use other precautions to minimize reflux symptoms, such as avoiding large greasy meals, staying upright for at least an hour or so after meals, minimizing caffeine intake, stop smoking if you smoke, avoid eating too late in the evenings, lose weight if you are overweight, I guess you get the point.

Can I take losec (omeprazole) and st johns wort at the same time?

Yes, but...: St. John's wort will speed up the rate that your liver breaks down losec (omeprazole). So combining both medications will reduce the effectiveness of losec (omeprazole).

Would take omeprazole for a month be considered long term? Is it safe to take for a month?

Discuss with doc: Some get relief from heartburn or other symptoms of GERD by using a short course (2-4 wks) of omeprazole. Avoiding aggravating factors such as alcohol, caffeine, or laying down within an hour of eating can also help. Longer term use of these meds (for years) is sometimes needed, but you should discuss your needs with your doc to make sure other conditions that would need treatment are not overlooked

I need to take omeprazole but I just ate and forgot to take it how long should I wait to take it after I eat?

Taking Prilosec: You should not wait to take your omeprazole. Take it as soon as you can. The best time to take it, if you are taking once a day, is 1/2 hour before breakfast.

I take 40mg omeprazole in the morning daily, just prescribed 10mg escitalopram, are these 2 safe to take together?

Always inform Dr: It is ALWAYS important to advise or remind your Dr (s) of ALL other medications you take and conditions you have. There is increased risk of some serious escitalopram side effects that might require dose reduction, etc. Make it a habit. It's very important. Be safe. Be well.

Omeprazole and escatalopram. Leaflet says interact. Does it just mean don't take at same time, or meds shouldn't be used in conjunction at all?

Omeprazole and escatalopram. Leaflet says interact. Does it just mean don't take at same time, or meds shouldn't be used in conjunction at all?

They are both: Processed through the cyp2c19 metabolic pathway. You can be tested to see if you metabolize drugs via this pathway too slow, too fast, or just right. The company is called genomind. They also test other important pathways that many meds go through. If you are one of the abnormal metabolizers, the drugs will not work, or could build up toxic side effects if too slow. Recommend mthfr genotyping.

Started taking Tecta today, still in a lot of discomfort tonight. Am I able to take ‎Omeprazole as well? Or take two doses of Tecta (40mg) tomorrow?

No...: It will be duplication. Can add zantac, (ranitidine) pepcid, Maalox etc. Get checked for H Pylori. Need to modify your meal habit and food. Wt loss and exercise, raising the head end of bed, not lying down immediately after full meal, reducing stress helps.
