Prilosec OTC in morning, Tums Dual Action before bed?

I'm wondering, can I take these two in the same day, since one is PPI and the other is PPI + H2? I heard that Tums Dual Action works very well for nighttime gerd, while Prilosec OTC doesn't.

Is it safe to do this? I'd like to take Tums Dual Action on an empty stomach and go to bed 20-30 minutes afterwards.

Re: Prilosec OTC in morning, Pepcid Complete before bed?

Any of the PPI's can have break through acid at any time. With me, its mostly at night. I take generic Zantac when I'm having a flare up.

As for taking multiple PPI's at once, I don't know that it would do much more than just one. Tums Dual Action is just Pepcid with calcium carbonate.

If the Prilosec isn't working, why not try moving over to generic Prevacid?
