    Prilosec OTC and Pepcid Complete.
    Redbaron1234 posted:
    I just recently took a 14 day dose of Prilosec OTC. It has been 2 weeks since then and my heartburn has returned already. I was using Pepcid complete and would like to continue using it. I do not know if it is safe to return to Pepcid so soon after the Prilosec. If anyone knows something about this, I would appreciate some help. I am afraid to take it without advice. I am unemployed without health insurance and cannot afford a doctor. Any advice will do me worlds of good.
    Alberdena responded:
    I was told to take them at least four hours apart as the pepsid h2 blocker cancels out the prilosec.
    Bianca_Thompson responded:
    I switch between taking my H2 blockers daily and using tagement. I have seen no side effects of mixing the two, but then I have been placed on high doses of H2 before.

    I got diagnosed with GERD in 2007 and have been on and off H2s ever since. My prefrence is to control my reflux with diet and use OTC antacids when I stray from my diet.
