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: 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. ...Read more

Can you take Pepcid AC and Prilosec together?

No: 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. ...Read more

Is it ok to take Pepcid and Prilosec together?

Wait some time: 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. ...Read more

Can i take Pepcid complete and Prilosec at the same time?

Not a good idea: 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. ...Read more

Approx. 8-12 weeks: Assume the diagnosis was made by EGD. Biopsy for H. Pylori must be taken. If it was negative then PPI and H2 blocker as you are taking is the right treatment for 12 weeks. And if symptoms continue , one can continue for longer period of time. Avoid Alcohol, NSAID/Aspirin/Cigarette/Spicy and fatty food. ...Read more
