Hi, Lizzie,

I helped you with the Zantac question the other day. What is going on with the Prilosec?

My docotor told me to take mylanta,pepcid for two days and then add prilosec.For my acid reflux problem.Today i did take 1|2 a prilosec.I just thought that adding prilosec would be to much.what ya think?
Expert:  A. Schuyler, NP replied 9 years ago.
Nope. Prilosec doesn't interfere with the others. They all work by slightly different methods to help with your stomach acid/reflux. Prilosec is a delayed release tablet, so you should not take half of it. It isn't dangerous to do so, but it negates the effectiveness of the drug.

You're very welcome. The whole Prilosec should not affect you that way. It is quite safe.
