I sometimes get heartburn at weird times of day (not every day) My question is if it takes zegerid long time to work, can I take a Pepsid AC at the same, can I take zenegrid?
After having it checked on the Interactions Checker this was found:
Applies to: Pepcid AC (famotidine), Zegerid (omeprazole/sodium bicarbonate)
Oral antacids and some aluminum, calcium, and magnesium salts may decrease oral H2 blocker plasma concentrations. The mechanism may be related to reduced gastric absorption and bioavailability due to acid-neutralizing effects. Data vary and the clinical significance has not been clearly established. It is recommended that H2 blocker be administered one to two hours before one of these preparations.
However, please do double check it with a pharmacist, please take care, be well!
