Sure: Probiotics are just collections of bacteria and the various bacteria do not interact with each other. You can take as many different types as you wish with no negative effects.

Yes but two AcipHex (rabeprazole) 20 mg a day is a lot: I think a better question would be why do you need this much abdominal medication. A large dose of the medication could impair your magnesium and give you more problems than you started with. Perhaps some lifestyle changes would be good. I suggest avoiding alcohol, nicotine, and caffeine as well as any specific food that upsets your stomach. If you are overweight consider substantial weight loss. ...Read more
