I was prescribed zantac 150 mg twice daily , then was prescribed prilosec Dr 20mg once daily. I was never told to stop the first medication. Should I be taking both ?

It is advisable to stop Zantac ... although some people who have extremely bad GERD or other conditions may need both Zantac and Prilosec.
If you told you doctor that the Zantac wasn't working and the doctor prescribed Prilosec, then I would suggest that you stop Zantac and at least see if Prilosec on it's own will work. If it doesn't then you can discuss with your doctor and see what he/she says.
