I am taking Aciphex-20 two times. Can I take Schiff Digestive advantage probiotic also? Please answer.

I am taking Aciphex-20 two times. Can I take Schiff Digestive advantage probiotic also? Please answer.

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.

Can I take dicyclomine and bentyl?

It says to take Bentyl (dicyclomine) 30-60 minutes before meals. Does that mean it will not work if you take it anytime during the day & not just before meals?

Will still work: Since Bentyl (dicyclomine) is an antispasmodic, it is used to "relax" the bowels. In IBS, many events are triggered by food so Bentyl (dicyclomine) is generally taken a little before every meal. ...Read more
