This person is taking famotidine 20mg plus omerprazole 20mg is it not applied for the same thing, heartburn or acid reflux

Yes, you are right. They are both used to treat the same problem but they work in slightly different ways.
Studies have shown that taking famotidine at night may help night time gastric reflux better than taking just omeprazole.
Taking the two together may be more effective in patients with severe reflux.
