    Which acid reflux meds?

    Which acid reflux meds can you take with 20 mg of escitalopram.

    I had an endoscopy and they said I need to take acid reflux meds so proscribed be omeprazole

    I've since read that taking both meds isn't advised.

    Thanks

    Omeprazole slows the rate escitalopram is metabolised which increases its plasma levels a little. Your doctor will have taken that into consideration as will your pharmacist. SSRIs and PPIs are not a rare combination.
