I have been prescribed apo-omprazole to help with acid build up from vomiting due to chemo treatments. I am also taking kytril and dexaamethasone for nausea/vomiting
Omeprazole is a proton pump inhibitor and Zantac is an H2 receptor antagonist. They both work in slightly different ways to decrease the amount of acid produced in the stomach.
If your symptoms are severe a combination of the two may be beneficial.
However you should check with your doctor before taking them together.
