Is it okay to combine h2 blockers like Zantac (ranitidine) with proton pump inhibitors (ppi)?

In brief: Sure, best at night

Some ppi's don't last all day, so acid production rises by evening.
Such patients may benefit from either a second dose of ppi medication before dinner, a switch to a longer acting ppi, or the addition of h2 blocker medication at bedtime.
