omeprazole over pantoprazole
7 Replies RSS
advantages of omeprazole over pantoprazole ## There really is no benefit to using one over the other, they both work the same and are in the same class of medications, proton pump inhibitors. However, just like any other medication, one may work better for someone than a different one does. There is really no explanation for why this happens, but it does. Has your doctor recommended one of them? Here are links to both: ## Actually Pantoprazole is becoming more prescribed and the tendency is to make it more prescribed than Omeprazole. The effect of both proton pump inhibitors is similar, but Pantroprazole is more safe when combined with (some) other drugs, since it has a lower affinity for the cit. P450 than Omeprazole, an enzyme responsible for the metabolism of many drugs. You can find...

I was praying that whoever makes the drug Aciphex would be so kind as to help me out with a coupon or discount or even a months sample. I took this drug for control of my Gerd several years ago when I was insured. It really did the job. I really need it.

Or call the company who makes them and ask if they have a drug program to give you a discount on their drug. Most drug companies will help you out somehow. Good luck I live with it too and its horrible. ## Thank you Donna for your reply. I will try one of the other ones. ## The manufacturer of Aciphex, which contains the active ingredient Rabeprazole does have have a discount program. You ca...
