I am sorry , I don't know the answer off the top of my head but your  GI Doc would

probably be able to help you.

Other wise do a comparison of the 2 meds and how they work. Google:

Pharmacodynamic Aspects of Hz-Blockers versus proton Pump Inhibitors


Perhaps a member will know the answer.

Take care and hope you find the answer.
