Is there a drug interaction for Ceftin (cefuroxime) and Omeprazole? I am on ceftin (cefuroxime) 2x daily and Omeprazole 40mg daily. Can they be taken together?

Is there a drug interaction for Ceftin (cefuroxime) and Omeprazole? I am on ceftin (cefuroxime) 2x daily and Omeprazole 40mg daily. Can they be taken together?

Med interactions: According to a drug interaction check, the absorption level of the Ceftin (cefuroxime) may be affected by lowered stomach acid which is what omeprazole does. It appears that any medication that lowers the acid would have this affect (for example, Zantac or Pepcid). This would reduce the effectiveness of the Ceftin (cefuroxime).
