I take Prilosec (omaprozole) twice a day for GERD, Barretts esophogus, etc. Which is best Omaprozole or W/ magnesiun

Hi,

There is no much difference betweem Omeprazole and Omeprazole with magnesium.

You can take anyone for GERD,Barretts esophagus.

Omeprazole magnesium is the salt that is used to make the tablet.

When the salt dissolves in our bodies it releases the omeprazole to our system.

Other omeprazole salts can also be used.

Different salt forms will have slightly different properties.

Omeprazole magnesium tablets may be taken with food or on an empty stomach.

Omeprazole magnesium is well -tolerated so you can use it.
