Aciphex and Zantac together?

Ii'm taking Aciphex one time per day. Does anyone know if it would be ok to take Zantac also. Like one in the morning and one at night?

Possibly, but it didn't work for me. Zantac can reduce the effectiveness of a PPI. You would be better off with two PPIs.

Thank you. I did get through to my doctor who said to take 2 Aciphex instead. I'm getting a new order otherwise I'll run out of medication soon.

My doctor just increased me to twice a day on Aciphex also. When did your doctor say to take the second dose? Mine said before dinner but that seems like too soon after I took the first one. I was thinking every 12 hours would be better.

Debbie2862,
My doctor didn't say when to take the 2nd dose of Aciphex but I just started last night and took it 12 hours from the last dose. I don't eat really big dinners but I'm assuming they want you to take it before dinner because that's tradionally the time people eat a large meal. I'm more concerned with making sure the medication is working before I take my pain medication that is causing the problems. I presume that my pain medication is causing the irritation.

PPIs are most effective when taken 30 minutes to an hour before a meal. Eating triggers the production of acid.

Re: Aciphex and Zantac together?

ok, I've been eating many small meals throughout the day. I may have to rethink when I'm eating.
