Can you take Prilosec and Zantac together?


Answer by  cangel818 (981)

According to my research you can take Prilosec and Zantac on the same day but not at the same time. Although it has not been found that the two drugs will have a bad reaction when taken together it is best to take them a few hours apart.


Answer by  Angela (36)

Because there are no drug interactions between these two it is possible to take them together but at different times during the day. For instance you can take the Prilosec in the morning and then you can take the Zanctac before bed. It is best to see how your own body reacts.

Checking several drug interaction list there does not seem to be any major drug interaction. Though some suggest to take them at different times if taken on the same day

add your own answer hereI take the Prilosec first thing in the morning and rantitidine (generic Zantac) around 8PM. I have had no problems whatsoever taking both Meds. After 2 weeks on Prilosec, I then take 150Mg. twice daily of the Rantitidine.

Why not just take your Zantac BEFORE all the teethbrushing/mouthwashing process?  add a comment

I was told to take both by my Dr. but at different times...Prilosec is a Proton Pump inhibitor which decreases acid production and Zantac works differently as a Histamine Blocker...
