Re: omeprazole and nexium at the same time?

The two drugs are almost exactly the same, so taking both is usually not necessary. Whether it's safe depends on the total dosage.

Just make sure the doctor who prescribed the Nexium also knows about the omeprazole.

Thank you. I thought that might be the answer.
