Hello... I take Apriso and Nexium... I take the Apriso one or two hours before taking the Nexium... My pharmacist says it is because the Apriso has to have a certain PH level to release correctly and the Nexium can change that. So I take the Apriso and give it an hour to do it's thing, then I take the Nexium to combat the heartburn from the Pred... So far so good.. I'm down to 30mg of Pred now and the Apriso seems to be keeping me in remission so far... Once I get off the Pred completely, I'll stop the Nexium and hopefully my heartburn will stay away...
P.S.. I think Co-Administered means to take it at the same time.. that's why I wait an hour or even two sometimes before I take the Nexium
