Can I take esomeprazole and omeprazole together?
Esomeprazole and omeprazole are both acid suppressant agents, which means that they work in the same way.
This means that they may not be safe for you to take together.
If you’re taking one of these medications and don’t think your medication is treating your acid reflux effectively enough, speak to your doctor or pharmacist for advice.

Esomeprazole and ranitidine are also both acid suppressant agents which means, like esomeprazole and omeprazole, they may not be suitable for you to take together.
If you think you need to take a second medication to manage your heartburn, ask your doctor or pharmacist for advice.
What is the difference between omeprazole and esomeprazole?
Omeprazole and esomeprazole are two different medications that have a lot in common.
They’re both used to treat heartburn and acid reflux, are taken in the same way and are both equally effective treatments when taken at 20mg doses.
However, omeprazole can be used during pregnancy or breastfeeding, where esomeprazole can’t.
Another big difference between the two is the cost, with omeprazole usually being much cheaper than esomeprazole, making it perfect for the savvy shopper.
