Can you take pepcid ac and prilosec together?

No

Omeprazole
Prilosec should be taken about an hour before eating anything, Pepcid can be taken almost any time. However it may be an overkill to take both at the same time since you would not likely get additional benefit from doing so.

Can Prilosec and Pepcid be taken together? I just started a Prilosec regime, but it would be nice to take something for the acid right now.

PPI + H2 blocker

Omeprazole
It is ok to take a 'proton-pump inhibitor' like prilosec, together with an 'H2 blocker' like pepcid if you are having breakthrough symptoms. A more simple option would be to adjust the prilosec dosage upwards, for better control of your symptoms. If you are requiring both medications, you should be followed by a gastroenterologist.

Wait some time

Omeprazole
Prilosec is a delayed-release proton pump inhibitor that needs an acid stimulus to activate it. A meal would do that. Taking Pepcid too close to Prilosec may decrease the latter's effectiveness.

Yes

As long as you need both to control your symptoms. However you should consult your doctor if you do require both drugs regularly to control your symptoms just in case there is something more serious happening.

Not a good idea

Omeprazole
Prilosec should be taken about an hour before the first meal of the day, Pepcid nearly at any time. There is no added benefit for most people to take Prilosec and Pepcid together the first thing in the morning although some people may need to take Pepcid at bedtime to reduce the acid output.

Dr. Bryan H. Levey answered:

Prilosec vs pepcid vs probiotics for distended stomach?

The answer...

....to what will help with a distended abdomen depends entirely on the cause of the distention. Probiotics are helpful with a lot of digestive issues, if you take them regularly. The two meds you mention reduce stomach acid and are unlikely to help with distention. If this is happening often, look to your diet for a solution. This problem is often diet related.

Pepcid ac vs. prilosec for gerd? Any advantage to one or the other?

Possibly.

Omeprazole
Pepcid is better for short term effect, quick relief. Prilosec is better at suppressing acid production if taken daily for a week or longer. If you need to use acid medications frequently you should consult with your doctor, since you may be suppressing something that needs to be diagnosed and addressed properly.
