Can You Take Zantac And Omeprazole Together
Can I take omeprazole and Zantac (ranitidine) extra strength pill together since the omeprazole doesn't work much with my gerd?
Yes, but chk it out: You can use both medications if you need them to control your significant gerd/reflux trouble, but I would advise checking it out with your doc to see why you are having such bad reflux. An infection such as helical pylori causing gastritis/ulcers? Hiatal hernia? Nonulcerative dyspepsia? Minimize alcohol, caffiene, and minty/spicy foods n don't eat before bed. Don't smoke. Consult doc. Good luck. ...Read more
Is it safe to take 60mg of dexilant, (dexlansoprazole) 40mg omeprazole, and 150mg of Zantac daily?
Overkill: Dexilant (dexlansoprazole) and Omeprazole belong to the same category of meds (ppi) different delivery system and zantac is h2 blocker which blocks acid production at a later part of the spectrum than ppi. We have mixed ppi and h2 blockers for severe gerd or persistent acid (tested by monitoring) but not two ppi as the side effects can increase like hypomagnesemia. ...Read more

5 wks of 7.5mg Omeprazole was giving my 10 wk baby insomnia, started on Zantac (ranitidine) 1 ml x 3 on Tues. Reflux now much worse & baby very upset, do I persevere?
Reflux: The meds usually don't have much of an effect on the quantity of spit up. They help with the irritability of the reflux to prevent acid from causing the pain. It's all weight dependent so without a weight can't say if the Zantac (ranitidine) is the correct dosage or not. If the quantity is a lot then we sometimes thicken feeds through the bottle to help the reflux. ...Read more

Can you take prilosec and nexium (esomeprazole) together? Can I take zantac at night after taking prilosec in the afternoon?
Drug interactions: Prilosec is a brand of generic omeprazole. Nexium is a brand of generic esomeprazole, which is left mirror image of omeprazole. Therefore, you only take one, not both proton pump inhibitors (PPI). Zantac is brand of generic ranitidine, which is an H2 blocker, which isn't as powerful as PPI but can be used in conjunction w/PPI. Try lifestyle modifications to avoid acid reflux: http://goo.

Both are very safe: Omeprazole is on average more effective overall, and sustains the effectiveness over the long term. If you are happy on ranitidine, there is no reason to change. Omeprazole has been associated with osteoporosis, and certain antibiotic associated diarrheas, and other rare side effects. As drugs go, it is very safe and very few people have problems with it. ...Read more

I took a 40mg prilosec, prescribed, can I take a zantac (ranitidine)? I just started the script and I need instant relief
Not best choice: If you need instant relief you need to take something that will directly neutralize the stomach acidity, such as TUMS, (calcium carbonate) Rolaids, Mylanta etc. Prilosec (a PPI) and Zantac (H2 blocker) both act to cause the stomach to make less acid, but they don't immediately neutralize the acid already there. **PPI's like Prilosec can be "addicting" see:. http://bit.

I take Prilosec in morning and Zantac (ranitidine) at bedtime. Zantac (ranitidine) helped at night for a while. But now it isn't. What can I do.
Increase the prilose:
You may take an additional Prilosec at bedtime, or see your doctor for a rx strength
medication. An antacid as an additional
medication may also be helpful.

Gerd: These medications have differing mechanisms of action and usually it's not necessary to take them together although I don't think it is harmful to do so. Zantac (ranitidine) has a quicker onset of action and thus relieves heartburn quicker, but overall, taking prilosec daily is more effective for most patients but should there be breakthrough heartburn, taking a zantac (ranitidine) in addition for quick relief may help. ...Read more

Is it recommended to take Prilosec in the morning and Zantac (ranitidine) at night for complete acid relief of GERD?
See your doctor.: If you are initially treating presumed acid reflux, Prilosec 20 mg once each morning about 20 minutes before eating any food is a good start. If it does not completely relieve your symptoms after two weeks, however, or if they recur after stopping the Prilosec, then I would seek out treatment long term through your family doctor. Anti-reflux measures are important too. Good luck. ...Read more
